    I share the concern about the fork, especially since it doesn't have a lock-out.

    In your case, I would probably bring $300 cash, and if it was in great shape, fit me well, and I liked the way it...

    I would personally get a modern Shimano Deore LX long cage RD, a wide range cassette (11-34?), a longer chain and ride away!

    I obviously don't stress keeping my bikes period correct. :)

    It is hard to recognize without the eye candy, but isn't that the same bike that is listed later? An electric bicycle with a battery in the downtube and storage in the "tank"

    Trexlertown has a velodrome in Pennsylvania

    There is a velodrome in San Dieog, CA

    Both of the above are outside, so they are not wood.

    Track racing is still an Olympic event.

    I have a hitch rack with an integrated lock. I always carry 1 bike, often 2, and occasionally put on my extension to carry 3 or 4. Couldn't do that with just my back seat. :)

    Generally I like the chart, but there are some things it says to check far too infrequently for my taste. For example, I check tire wear, and brake wear at least once a week, since it only takes a...

    Can you say theft magnet?

    I think it would be fun to ride, but unless it sat in your cubicle/office I wouldn't consider a high bling bike for commuting.

    In my amateur opinion, either something is rubbing that tire or you need to pump it up to higher pressure when you ride... Have you had any pinch flats?
