    If the OP is riding a Surly Cross Check as listed in his signature, this is not an issue. Fwiw, I have ridden much of the OCA on tubulars and though I wouldn't recommend it, it can be done. The trail...

    Riverdale & Woodlawn have easy access to the Old Croton Aqueduct trail and the south county trail. Both trails get you out of the urbs in a hurry and allow you to enjoy the many pleasant roads around...
  3. Anybody riding on the Bronx River Parkway tomorrow, 5/3?

    I am.
    Starting at the south end at 10:00.
    I'll be the white-haired (& bearded) guy creeping along on a black 1969 Cinelli.

    I will be riding on the parkway tomorrow, starting at the south end at 10:00AM, when it opens. Being vintage myself, I'll be on a vintage racing bike: a black 1969 Cinelli.
    Say hi. I'm generally...

    Style trumps substance in these matters. At our age it'd better.

    Older photos with bilious background. I've since changed the tape to blue & took off the brake. The thing looks almost new, which...

    Many of us C&V types came of age during the bike boom of the late 60s/early 70s. We have a relationship with bikes that mirrors the depth and intensity of car-obsession, and for the same reason. The...

    What that piece did was keep the rack from sliding down the seat stays. I don't think it made the rack mount any stiffer, but it kept the rack in place on the frame which made it less likely the seat...

    The issue here is the type of failure that's likely to occur when one of the struts or rails splits at a bolt hole. To expand on RHM's point, once one joint fails, other failures are likely to follow...

    The bikes that just take up space in a garage are mostly low-end, but not always. Like many on this forum, I've pulled decent bikes out of the trash and gotten garage sale bargains. (A few years ago...

    I don't know if this is a consideration, but the performance and reliability of many road bike components (shifters, pedals & hubs especially) on mid-range and top-end models improved hugely from the...

    That sign is at the top of a rather long climb from the east and a shorter, steeper climb from the west. Knowing the iron-legged RHM is more than equal to the job of grinding up any slope in...

    Cool VW!
    407947Here's mine, with foldies on the rear rack.
    As for a mountain bike for under $200, I'd suggest getting the simplest one (hardtail, rim brakes) that fits you. Brand is less important...

    1956 Frejus. I was born that year. Although I was there the entire time I don't remember a thing.

    I rode it last week for the first time in a couple of months. Took it down & up the West...
  16. How common is injury from steel frame or fork failure?

    Several recent C&V threads got me thinking about this. I've seen many bent and broken steel frames and forks, but haven't had first-hand or even second-hand knowledge of people injured because of...

    I rode the North County Trailway from Rt 117 to Yorktown for the first time last Sunday. In spite of the road stretches, it is a more interesting and less car-proximate path than the SCT, which runs...

    Yet another Milanese confection. Mid 1970s, barely ridden. It hangs on the wall at work and I admire it every day.

    The head badge is 60s-70s. At some point in the early 1970s, they started using an aluminum badge with slightly different graphics. If the frame doesn't take a 26.2mm seat post, it is a 1980s or...

    Gotta disagree.
    In 1978 I gave my wife a Serotta frame custom made by Ben himself. She loved it and put many miles on it before we had kids. Next, she got a Ross MTB and a Burley in which our...

    Could be a replacement fork, but the only way you will get any decent info will be to post photos. Without knowing the model and age of the bike, nobody can give you a meaningful answer. If the bike...
