    Thanks. Reading that definitely gives me some food for thought. It looks like I can let the yoke down and increase the cantilever angle. I don't have a ton of room up front, but it should definitely...

    Those were the first clipless pedals I used. I came across my first pair a couple years ago and sold them on eBay. Not going to retire on the proceeds. The Speedplay Pedal Museum has this picture:

    Right, not the Shimano straddle cable, the Dia-Compe straddle cable.

    Any idea how I would figure out the right cable length?

    I have a couple bikes with u-brakes. I measured them and my Trek. The other bikes have about 3.5cm between the posts and the middle of the rim. On my Trek, that distance is only about 2.2cm. I...

    1. Non-adjustable straddle cables. They have bumps on both ends. One end has a little extra appendage to grab onto.

    Solving my brake dilemma

    I have a Trek 520 I converted to fixed gear back in late 2014. At the time I tossed on a set of 700c wheels. I didn't do anything about the brakes. I was able to adjust the pads to strike the rims...

    Do be careful with that stem. I got it from John Pergolizzi in one of his "mystery" boxes. I don't know if that counts as "provenance" or not...

    Not a twin plate fork crown, so not that early. Also, I think the fork crown should be chrome. My guess is it suffered over the years, so the owner had it painted when the rest of the frame was done.

    That doesn't surprise me, not one little bit. There is some bike application (front derailleur clamp or derailleur cable fixing nut, I think) where Campy and SunTour of the era used either an 8mm or...

    That's what I've tried so far, a 1/4" nut driver handle with either an admittedly large crappy 8mm socket or a more typical sized 5/16" socket. I have been a bit lazy in regards to 8mm wrenches. I've...
  16. Socket to remove early Dura-Ace brake lever clamp?

    I need to remove one of my early Dura-Ace brake levers to change the stem. It appears to be an 8mm nut, but my 8mm and 5/16" sockets won't fit in the space between the sides of the brake lever body....

    I ride mostly tubulars as well. At the moment, I have one vintage bike (Schwinn Volare) which has clinchers. I may swap out for tubulars.

    I carry a spare, and assuming my rims have decent glue on...

    That's a good thought. If it didn't sell at $275, maybe it won't sell at $350 either. We'll see what he does on the third try.

    I watch all sorts of stuff on eBay, much of it with no immediate intention of bidding on. Sometimes I think the price is too high, and wait to see if it goes unsold and the seller lowers the price....

    Lovely bike. Let me know if you don't want the tubulars. I might be interested, depending on spacing, hubs, etc.
