    This stuff:
    451486
    Toxic as hell probably, but man does it work wonders on decades-old grunge. I think it works by drying out any petroleum base and leaving the residue easy to wipe off. I...

    The marathons are an excellent commuting tire. Very puncture resistant, long lasting, just not the tire to bomb down an alpine descent with 21 switchbacks. I have a studded set on my winter...

    I've always applied it post-frame prep (all paint/powder and tapping of threads finished). One thing I did find; WD 40 is an excellent solvent to clean up the sticky mess that invariably comes out...

    Thanks for that, my best success with the macro shots is actually with digital compacts. I brace my hand on something like part of the frame, and set the camera to the macro mode (usually a flower...

    Yep. Ray's the master of modest equipment meets careful preparation thus turning out world-class pics. My best work doesn't come close to his.

    My one tip is that macro (close ups) of interest...

    The story sounds odd; if that happened in our shop I'd show the customer the damaged pedal and explain/show how the retaining nut had stripped, or the axle end had cracked, or whatever caused the...

    Very nice bike and even better photography. Love the forced focus in shot #8 of the Campy decal. Very nice job, congrats on a beautiful ride and an excellent photo spread.

    Congrats on the find, you're going to love that bike. While most of my bikes are steel, my first "modern" (90's) road bike was a C'Dale R4000 that was my primary ride for over 10 years. I loved...

    Wonderful writeup/pic essay Northbend! As a "temporarily displaced" Oregonian I really loved the whole thing, but especially the shots of Crater L. and the McK pass, you have done a real service to...

    +1 on on the check valve, had this problem with my Silca, sprayed a little WD 40 in the check valve bore, cleaned it up and presto, has worked perfect for the last 5 years.

    Personally I like patina of use in a saddle and bikes in general. Light touch of proofide, buff off and ride for 10 years.

    Finally nice weather in DC. I had to work at the shop today, sold 2 bikes. Nice to see people out and buying.

    I'll add my amazement, that's a stunner. And you own multiple Kvales? That strikes me as unfair.

    Quite right...although I didn't expect the subtleties to be so quickly pointed out here! In my world there is only one .45, and that's a 1911 variant. Although I don't want to hijack this thread...

    I used an NOS Sachs-Huret Aris for this build, it shifts like chambering a round in a Colt .45. Solid and with authority. I've probably got 5k or so miles on it, haven't had to adjust it once...and...

    I might mention the use of heat, like a hairdryer or similar, prior to application of solvents and scrubbing. Heat does a great job softening up the gunk before you scrape it. I like a thick ziptie...

    Oooohhhh....politicians. Hard to believe that hasn't come up. Living this close to DC (just outside the district) reminds me how much I HATE POLITICIANS.

    This even has a cat tie-in
