    Hi M-Z,

    The rims are SUN CR 18. They are a high quality and strong rim at an affordable price. They are not race rims, they are intended for touring and mountain bikes, but they are not...

    Campagnolo is great gear, I'm using Campagnolo hubs on this bikes, they were the best during this era. However, fitting a Campagnolo drivetrain to a PX10 is not an easy or the best conversion. The...

    I'll possibly make the jump to Ultegra 6870 next year. My riding is very flat near home but I often climb very steep hills when participating in events, so mechanical 2x10 drivetrains have never been...

    I agree that the the bike shop mechanic is providing flawed work and their explanation is even more flawed. Modern gear should remain reliable for 3000 km before chain replacement and adjustment is...

    I'm from Illinois, so any bump with a 5% grade that takes more than five minutes to climb is a hill to me.

    That doesn't stop me from climbing a cumulative 9000 ft of hills in one morning in nearby...

    Hi Robbie,

    I put together the PX10 specifically for L 'Eroica and now that I've completed the bike and ridden it on gravel, I'm happy with the build.

    It's interesting to compare the PX10 with...

    Internet Brands has the worse mobile device performance, and their internet site is highly flawed, also. I think they depend almost entirely on interns and volunteers. Yet, the company is worth...

    Hi Pete,

    It's interesting to compare the PX10 with my Simoncini Cyclocross Special and to my modern carbon Cyclocross bike, all with the same general size and type of tire. On pavement the PX10...

    I agree with all of this. There is a clearcoat on the chrome and the decals might have been coated also. Simplex's use of Delron was a terrible idea. The derailleurs probably would have been...

    Hi S-R,

    Adding fenders has lost some of it's appeal as I finished the bike. The Compass Stampede Pass '32 tires now measure about 31.5mm wide and fitting a fender under the fork crown is looking...

    Good to know, I think your precisely correct. In fact, I'm afraid of doing harm by excessive methods to restore a like-new appearance.

    Good info. The wheels are HED and they offer an 11 speed upgrade kit for the hub I have. I'm willing to budget $1500 and I'll apply the take-off parts to a different bike.

    Yes, this makes sense, lightweight road bikes were scarce prior to 1970 and the bike boom days. 99% of bikes sold before 1970 were heavy mass market bikes.
  25. Updating a 2010 bike from mechanical to electronic, opinions?

    My sturdy Pedal Force CG2 road bike is 5 years and has about 5000 miles on it. It's used for faster rides on dry days, it's one of several bikes I use.
