    I've seen bikes with a lot of rust before, but this one looks pretty bad. Many of the ones in my experience were ridden on Trainers inside, and the corrosion was the result of a rider sweating...

    I recently switched from Park-lube to a marine grade grease and tried it on a recent build. It is a little thicker and somehow kind of stringy, but seems to work great. I assume it will last longer...

    I had a Fuji Espree with a set of black Suntour barons that had indexing for sure on the rear shifter. I don't recall the model but I'll try to find it.

    That bike (or one with a seat like it) is in a bike shop in Solvang CA. The original owner was something of a tinkerer and had other wacky bike stuff he'd come up with. I've got pictures of a bunch...

    I've got the same bike in that size. I love mine and ride it whenever I go to my parents (where it is stored since I have too many bikes at home). I've got a newer smoke painted ironman frame in...

    While I'm not a coffee drinker, I'm very fond of the solostove, you load it with little bits of wood from trees or bushes (dead stuff as big around as your thumb) light it up and it'll heat a liter...

    Ye Olde Bicycle Shoppe on the boundary of San Diego and La Mesa closed their doors about 2 years ago. I've been unable to find another place with bins of old parts, and an appreciation for classic...

    Ask the seller if he did the single speed conversion, and if so, if he still has the shoebox full of parts. I've bought two single speed bikes (one a very nice Merckx Professional) and had the owner...

    I had a similar experience when someone messed with my bar-end shifters while my bike was locked in a public place. I climbed on and started pedaling and had that result. Now I always leave them on.
