    Yesterday I took my '77 Pro Tour to the Swedish Isle of Ven.

    The tires are modern touring/city type with some tooth, which came in handy on some of the sand, dirt and gravel...

    It looks like you're missing the front brake caliper, too. At this point, you may wish to switch to V-brakes instead of the cantilever brakes.

    I recently put an extremely cheap aluminum V-brake...

    What chain tensioner? I think you're confusing the Nexus 3 speed gear box with a tensioner, which he doesn't have.

    The only types I've ever had trouble with are the ones where you stick the valve's end into the single hole in the pump head, and it magically figures out how to handle it.

    Right now I have a...

    I see new Centurions here in Sweden quite frequently. Typically sportier-type men's city/commuter bikes with internally geared hubs. I believe they're Danish. They seem quite nicely done for the...

    If the fender interferes with the brake, I suggest you move it away from the brake. That may encounter the...

    It's a clear, adhesive backed protector against scratches from the chain. Like a clear sticker.

    The nicest one I've used is this Lezyne Blox 23.

    When I first moved to Europe, I bought a cheap used bike and needed to do some work on it before my stuff got here through the Panama Canal. It...

    I just double checked my own. A pull on the cable shifts towards the larger gears, and releasing the tension in the cable moves towards the lower gears.
    I'm hardly an expert, but it sounds like...

    To be honest, on overhauls like this, I've re-used the bearings with great results. Unless, of course, the balls are messed up. The bigger problem is when the bearing races are scored or pitted.

    The bike isn't terribly special. I'd get whatever works best for your hindquarters, intended use and budget.

    I love Brooks touring-style saddles, but my city bike has a cheap Velo with someone...

    It sounds like a simple derailleur adjustment is all that is needed.

    That's definitely one of the nicer Crescents, and I'd be really surprised if it wasn't Reynolds 531.

    I've been looking for one of the nicer Crescents or Monarks from this time frame since I moved...

    I don't think that it does. Doesn't the chain have to be moving for any derailleur-style shifting to occur?

    This is one of the things that has me really enjoying internally-geared-hubs lately.

    I wouldn't run any derailleur equipped bicycle without any kind of freewheeling mechanism. It'll destroy the rear derailleur soon enough.

    So... what you really need is a psychologist for your mechanic?

    This engineer can't be bothered. He's about to make ladies uncomfortable at a party.

    Sorry about your bike. It looks both nice and very practical.

    If your bike is like similar bikes found here in Sweden, your dropouts are probably forward-facing. That is, the wheel falls out...

    When I damaged the original Cyclone on my '78 about a year ago, I put on a Shimano Acera, which I suppose is mediocre, but it works well with the large range, modern chain and modern 8 speed cassette...
