    Yes, you are right. I was really into Specialized at that time (rode an '88 Sirrus and the aforementioned '88 Stumpjumper) and thought the green/pink was a one-time deal.

    I quit using any kind of road-specific clipless pedals over 5 years ago. I have Shimano SPD mountain pedals on all my road bikes now; doesn't matter that a couple of them are nice old Italians.

    I realize this is an ancient thread, but I had a green/pink Stumpjumper and it was a 1988 model. I don't think that color was offered any other year.

    I only had that bike for about a week...

    Well, the ones on this bike are. Once the pads make contact with the rim, continued squeezing of the brake lever shows a lot of flex and contortion of the calipers.

    They stop the bike but if it...

    Yeah, I realize I dug up an old thread. Looking at the bike with the no-name Shimano indexing parts I thought it was from around 1987 and was surprised that it was much later than that.

    I'm going over a Peugeot PE 200 for a guy I work with. Not really upgrading anything, just a new chain and bar tape to get it ready for him to ride after sitting a long time. It's a pretty decent...

    I have a set of 23c Paselas on one bike and they're quite nice at 100psi. I also have 28c Paselas and they feel just as fast but more comfortable at 100psi.

    As much as I like the simplicity of V-brakes, mine always need a little help getting back to normal after undoing them to remove a wheel.

    I have a few Buff "head socks" that I wear in the Las Vegas heat. I won't say my helmet smells fresh & clean, but it doesn't stink. A shot of Febreeze or similar product after riding helps if...

    I just replied to another thread about brake squeal. I put Kool Stop salmon pads on my MTB commuter awhile ago and they can squawk something awful, even though I have them toed in to the point of...

    I put some salmon Kool Stops on my MTB commuter with V-brakes awhile ago. I don't really notice better stopping compared to the Jagwires that were due for replacement, but the Kool Stops do squeal...

    I have a couple skin suits I bought in the '90s by a brand called De Soto Sport. I don't know how I found out about them in the pre-Internet age, but I bought two of them for $60 each. They have...

    I posted this in a FB group and everyone jumped on me for mentioning Wally World, but this is perfectly good bar tape. Same as 90% of what's out there as far as I'm concerned.

    Good luck finding...

    I rode to my local Harbor Freight and bought one of these lights yesterday. I'd have bought 2 but there was only one in stock. Nice light (flash mode, anyway) with a good mount. I'll probably go...

    I run a bar con and DT shifter on a couple bikes. I prefer to do all my shifting with my right hand, and also need the left bar end for my mirror.

    I don't know what the geometry of a Bridgestone MB-1 is, but I had mine set up with drop bars for awhile and it made a fantastic heavy-duty road bike.

    Vuelta offers what you want and it won't cost much at all. I have some chainrings from them and they're perfectly fine.

    When I was 13 I bought a "road bike" - a Nishiki Custom Sport, 25" frame. I was pretty tall for 13 and was expected to grow more, but it didn't happen.

    A few years later I worked at the same bike...

    I have Tektro dual pivots on 3 of my bikes. They work fine for me, and I paid $25-30 per pair on eBay.

    I have a Kalloy Uno on a Bridgestone Radac in a nice blue color that matches the decals. One of the few options I could find in 25.8mm a few years ago.

    I bought that from Walmart a few years ago; I think I paid $4.86. Despite generously greasing the cables, the feel was so gritty I had to remove and toss everything.

    t0by - none of your photos show your knees. I've noticed the shorts that pros wear darned near go down to the knee cap these days. Are these shorts long like that?
