    I think the Velo Orange tall stack stem is about the nicest off-the-shelf threadless stem I've seen:

    VO Tall-Stack Stem 31.8, 1-1/8" - Threadless Stems - Stems - Components

    Soma makes a similar...

    I've had pretty good luck on ebay as a buyer and seller over the years, then strangely had three small items for sale ending on the same day a week ago that all went less than well. Two of the items...

    I'm with you here. I've been working on my own bikes since I was a kid and worked in a shop as a mechanic for a year. I've brought something to a shop to be repaired one time in the past 15 years...

    Looking at the photos of your bike really makes me want to take mine out, I have to make it happen! When I started riding/racing mountain bikes in 1994 I remember lusting after the tricked-out...

    Congrats on the new ride! I have that same bike in the same color except mine came with a front shock which I replaced with a rigid fork since the elastomers had turned to goo. I picked it up at...

    In Philadelphia back in the early '90s, when I was getting into racing and fast club riding, there were quite a few Scapins in the city. If my memory is correct, someone affiliated with one of the...

    I'd be ready for a Lotus ride in about a month. I wonder how many people we could actually gather.

    I did not know until recently that Lotus bikes were popular mainly in these parts. I grew up in...

    Thanks everyone! I had some time tonight to start disassembling and so far so good. The parts are in good shape with no missing bits other than a dust cap on one pedal. Got the bottom bracket out,...

    I agree, I've seen it and it's even more beautiful in person. Not only is it rideable in headwinds, it somehow seems to harness that energy and turn it into forward momentum. I think it has...

    That's the way I feel with my mountain bikes. I have two, an old 26" rigid and a modern 29er hardtail, with very different setups as far as bar width, shifters, disc brakes vs. cantilevers, etc. ...

    That's a nice bike! I've always liked Bassos and my 7400 group has worked so flawlessly over the past 20 years I have never felt the need to "upgrade" it. Good call going vintage, that bike is...

    What's your range of frame sizes?

    I seem to get a bit obsessed with frame sizes whenever I pick up a new bike because I want to be really sure the bike fits before dumping time and money into it. I spent years convinced my 55cm...

    I agree, that is a one-of-a-kind frame at half the cost of custom (and can you even get chrome anymore?). Just beautiful. Now, off to rob a bank and find one of those Spanish Inquisition stretching...

    All Mercks I have seen have the serial number reading from side to side, not wrapped around the edge of the bottom bracket, but the serial numbers are also known for some inconsistencies.
