    I think your idea of putting a swept back bar is a good one. You need to find a bar something like the Wald Cruiser bar 896. Just make sure the clamp diameter matches up with your stem and your good...

    Post this in the Classics and Vintage forum, you might get a better response. BianchiGirl is the resident expert on bikes like yours.

    Off the top of my head, I don't think it is from the 80's but...

    The expense of moving would certainly be more than buying a folding bike, so probably not the right solution. The other suggestions were pretty good. Getting the lightest bike possible, standing the...

    I agree with others and think there is something wrong with the shifters, it shouldn't be that hard.

    If you end up still wanting to change your shifters you could go to Dura Ace bar end shifters...

    +1 on the FSA Metropolis bar. Most comfortable bar I have ever owned. So nice I have three of them waiting for frames to put the on.

    Those pedals look like White Industries with a full toe clip. Go to Bruce Gordon's website and have a look at his White Industries pedals with his half clips. To me it is a nice compromise between a...

    Rivendells are designed mostly for a back rack if you are carrying any real weight. Depending on what you want to carry, will help determine the rack you want. I have that same bike, with a front...

    I did respond to your post in Regional.

    Also check out Craigslist and Kijiji for folders. There are a few that would fit the bill quite nicely.

    For a little more money you could also check out...

    Sorry for the late reply but if Bike Pirates doesn't work out, try Urbane Cycles on John Street. They cater to the everyday cyclist and it is a workers cooperative if that helps sway your decision.

    Mini Velos are not popular in this country let alone this city. Hoop Driver on College did carry the Soma for a while, don't know if they still do. Urbane Cycles on John Street carry folders from...

    Put on the fattest tire that can fit for a more comfortable ride. I don't know the bike so I can't recommend which tire but others can chime in with other helpful advice.

    For the last eight months I have been unable to ride a bicycle because of epididymitis which then progressed to prostatitis.

    A few days ago I couldn't take not riding my bike anymore and decided...

    Couple of things. Could the 12 speed cog be 1/8th instead of 3/16s that your chain is? That would cause a problem.

    Second, chains, cogs and chainrings wear out together. The wear pattern is like...

    This to me is the best descriptions of a Brompton. You certainly don't buy it because of the shifting system but for the fold and the panache of owning a Brompton.

    Ask yourself what are you going...

    This kit will not work. First the shifter cables are incompatible as you need the SA style cable with the very small head. The brake cable you need are typically the ones you use on mountain bikes...

    Yes, it is a Tempo.

    Zinc plates spokes, won't clean up well, so why bother.

    The stem and bars on the bike now are not original but they suit the bike. Could you not just find a bar that suits...

    If that frame was really made for a JIS headset you would be able to tell by measuring the fork for the crown race. If it measures 27.0 mm then it is a JIS.

    I like it but wish it had a horizontal top tube. That would give a more retro look.

    The bike was listed today, so I don't think you will see any motivation for them to sell at a reduced price. Most I would pay is $300 and that is if I was flush with cash. Does the bike fit you?...

    That bike, as nice as it is condition wise is not worth what they are asking. That bike brand new was about $399, if I remember correctly. I am with RandyJawa on his appraisal for this bike.
