    While I like the look of 27s on older bikes, on modern roads, I find them to be a bit overkill. The 25s provide more than enough comfort. Doesn't make much sense for Veloflex to make a tire for us...

    Lovely bike.

    Hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like the "small" headbadge, 51mm tall instead of the "large" at 56mm. If it is the "small, I'd say 1958-1959, assuming the RD is original....

    $75-80 each will get you the Veloflex Roubaix. 25mm and more durable than the 23mm Veloflex Criterium. The only reason to get the Criterium is it is...

    I don't think it would be hard to make $50/month flipping bikes. The only question you need to ask is how much time you are willing to put in to getting the $50.

    Do it for a month. Be very...

    Define decent amount of profit.

    Beer money? PBR - yes, La Chouffe - no.

    You are more likely to earn more/hour flipping burgers instead of bikes.
