    Here is my 1971 Raleigh Pro track bike. I raced it last year. I haven't ridden it once this year.

    Not original. I bought it last year as a frameset.

    I agree, but I still like Paselas a lot. Tires have to balance a lot of criteria: dry weather traction, wet weather traction, puncture protection, ride quality, durability, price, and others I can't...

    'S'nice. Are you sure it's a 1979? It looks slightly older than that.

    You can measure with one type of rule and convert to the other measurement using arithmetic. There are 2.54 centimeters to an inch.

    That's good spying, CliffordK. Now that you point it out, I agree there was a front-end collision. But if I remember right, nlerner got good use out of the fork. In front-end collisions, it is common...

    We can pontificate on this subject endlessly. And we do. That PDF was a life changer for me when I saw it a few years ago. In most cases, I use less pressure nowadays, but sometimes I use more,...

    I've hooked up these modern headlights to old dynamos. Three were sidewall dynamos and one was the kind that goes where a kickstand goes, behind the BB. In all cases, the lights work flawlessly. The...

    I suspect he is selling the crank because he stripped out the extractor threads.

    I have a 3x9 Tiagra drivetrain. I'm replacing the cable for the rear (9-speed). I threaded the cable just off to the side of the track it is supposed to go in. I can't even see it, and I can't get it...

    That's good news.

    You should see how many old three speeds are in my neighborhood in Manhattan. They've proven to be the most durable type of bike around, more than the old American one-speed...

    I mentioned it because I assumed you can anodize aluminum but not steel. But that's probably untrue.



    Aha, thanks for jogging my memory!

    That's a thought. I'll look into it. But there are stretching and strengthening exercises I know I need to do and just don't do often enough. Now that I'm at the age where my health doesn't just fix...
