    But with so much lateral protection from the cardboard and pool noodles, does that matter? I see the bubble wrap as nothing more as scratch insurance against the cardboard "skeleton" rubbing against...

    For what it's worth, Rivendell just put out a 7+ minute video of their latest frame-packing technique. I like that they use a bit more earth friendly items and eschew the old, pricey, foam blocks but...
  3. WTB: Dia-Compe Aero Brake Lever Hoods in Black

    Does anyone out there have a set of Dia-Compe Aero brake lever hoods in black? I'm not having much luck elsewhere and I would rather not use Cane Creek hoods.

    These hoods will fit the Model...

    I'm happy the scans could be of assistance, Kehomer.


    I think you should blaze the trail and begin the Tacheon legacy online!

    You'll certainly go to Velocult because of the overwhelming support here but to me, it started with a focus but lost it when the business started sinking, hence now reducing all inventory that made...

    I'm still not sure. I got home and hit the iced tea and relaxation. I'm going to start with tightening the pedal then if that doesn't help, go to the bottom bracket. I have a feeling my issue is...

    Good times, everyone. Some of the steeds that came out of the woodwork were impressive! Here's looking at you Raleigh Competition, Daccordi, a host of others along with the infamous suicide shifter...

    Thanks for the offer and considering those who like to stretch our legs.

    This time, I may just bring an upright C&V and stick with the pace I remember from last time.

    Although, I do like your...

    I'm hoping that being hand built helps keep their shape strong but, point taken.

    noglider, Sir_Name and inkandsilver, I sincerely appreciate the wonderful comments. You'd think that a blank canvas is nothing but a joy to develop but it was a delicate build with plenty of...

    x2 :)


    $4,350 is extremely ambitious in my opinion. But, hey, start high, you can always come down, right?

    MAP makes some incredible bicycles. A pal of mine knows Mitch well so he has two of...

    That makes good sense to me.

    Great modern example, Velognome, thanks!
  15. If I add braze-ons, fender/rack mounts, is the frame legally mine?

    Velo Finds posted a bike that caught my attention.

    A 1974 Raleigh Pro made into a city bike up for sale on eBay.

    Upon further inspection, it looks like a fella here in Portland is having his...

    I hate to echo the same statement already mentioned over and over above but I really like this thread too. And I really like that 1950 Raleigh Lenton Tourist!

    You've got a fan club here and we're...

    Once I started seeking the hubs out, I found that they were no longer produced so I began looking at the Electra Ticino bicycles and started plotting a donor bike. But, soon after, eBay not only came...

    I was really skeptical at using something from Electra for this build but after having the chance to have my hands on them, I am extremely impressed. They are of incredible quality. They weren't...

    Chris,

    I measured this a few times because purchasing the largest 650 tires Soma made had me a bit uneasy. Same with the Honjo's. Those are not inexpensive mistakes you want to make! But, the...

    Whoops! So it is. Lucky for me it is functionally impossible the way the setup currently is. In fact, after the shoot, I promptly removed it. It was just for posterity.




    Thanks to you both!...

    Thanks to everyone for the kind comments! I know it's not everyone's bag, but I appreciate that is looked past and the process as to what went into the build is what comes through.

  22. 1985 Raleigh Portage - City bike build

    Hey everyone,

    With the help of many inspiring upright city bike conversions I have been keeping track of on C&V over the years (here's looking at you, Voyageur, Shogun, Centurion and Marinoni...

    Nice work! A few more of these and you'll have paid for the bikes and be making straight profit. Sorta like renting a house.
    Great to hear things went well!

    I totally agree, mparker.

    I don't restore bikes for a living. In "real life" I run a bike share program of 250 bicycles (soon to be 400). The Copenhagenize blog put out a graph that perfectly...

    Thanks for posting this discussion, Lascauxcaveman. I have also been considering Spinlister for mid/low level frames as a way to see some sporadic income. I have also thought about paring the service...
