    That must have been in a newer one - I mainly recall (well, sort of!) the mushroom-filled ones related to Don Juan. I think I read the first one in 1968.

    Yes, Jim, exactly! I'm very glad he had planned to come and join us, and I wish I had met him in person before he passed on. I valued his inputs in our little chats here over the years.

    Carbon, how is that topic neuroscience? It seems like a type of morality, possibly a competition between moralities: Are we bound morally to avail others of resources when we can no longer use them...

    The thing is, there are no standards. There are perhaps 10 ways to characterize the size of a bike, and not many apply well to a modern curvy carbony or hydroformed shape. For those frames there's...

    glad you like it!

    Regarding the new one, I got an email about it asking for Kickstarter funding of $200, in return I will get a saddle someday. Being a sucker for lost kittens I paid. It's been...

    You're certainly following my principle about not buying junk. But there's a downside: it's harder to make myself sell the good stuff.

    For me it's mainly "don't buy (much) junk." I am not totally successful.

    The steer -tube sighting test is just for checking lateral positioning of the rim and of the fork dropouts. It should look centered in the "hole" if all is well. If it is offset to one side, take...

    I'm pretty sure Mondonico in the 90s were not sourced from contractors. Antonio Mondonico was the principal and the builder, with his son Mauro until the elder's retirement in 2005. After that, I...

    For me it's not a Brooks substitute. I like the comfort of an S-A more than that of a Brooks, and S-A thinks the new carbon design should be better than their leather ones. I think the carbon top...

    The deal I'm talking about was to "donate" $199 to their Kickstarter (or similar) fund to help defray development of the new saddle design.

    As a math Goldilocks, something here is not Just Right, though far short of a kludge.

    If you have a 52 cm frame with a 73 degree seat tube angle and a 56 cm frame with a 73 degree seat angle, and...
