    I don't know yet. This is behind my back burner projects. The Twenty has a lot more extra head tube than Rudi's frame, too.

    I wouldn't put it as strongly as jfowler85 did, but he has a point. My father's pearl of wisdom was, "To get angry is to lose the game." If this really upsets you, maybe you shouldn't be commuting on...

    This is interesting stuff. My thighs hit my stomach but only on my largest bike. I find it strange. I took it as a hint to lose weight, so I've done that.

    I have put a 1" threadless headset on my Raleigh Twenty. It came with a starfangled nut that fits fine. There isn't enough steerer tube protruding, so I'm going to lengthen it effectively by...

    Not that much, really. A little, maybe. You can always rent, too.

    I agree about getting the money and time for tours. It's hard. You can more easily get one or the other, but gathering both at the...

    I had a Dotek crank, and it was the worst I ever owned. The small chainring bent in a subtle way that I couldn't see, but it caused the chain to get wedged between small and middle chainring. You may...

    How do you define "cyclists," and how did you arrive at your 99% number? I think of cyclist as a person who rides a bicycle. I see a lot of people riding old bicycles, certainly more than 1% of...

    I've gone down hard a few times, and I think the fact that I survived them all makes them hand of God moments. I'll tell the story of one where I didn't fall.

    I was commuting to college one winter...

    I can't see from the picture what makes those spots on the ground. But I do have a spoke light in my rear wheel. It's good for being seen. But for seeing your way, you need a headlight. You also need...

    Duo, if I ever test rode an International, I've forgotten. Like other Raleighs of the era, the workmanship was inconsistent and mediocre. But it is said to be a great platform for many kinds of...

    @Road Fan, I have a Philips Saferide on my main commuter bike. It's the dynamo driven model. I believe the beam pattern is the same as that of the battery powered model, and I suppose the brightness...

    Rudi, in this picture, I attached my headlight to the front of my front rack. It didn't work well, because it wobbled up and down too much. It should be possible to do something better than this. I...

    The Raleigh serial number site is not all that reliable. It's just a guideline, not precise, though saying so might insult the author.

    Your plan sounds good. I don't have experience with the...

    I've been modernizing my McLean, so it would no longer qualify for L'Eroica. It has a mostly Tiagra drivetrain (except for crankset).

    Then again, my Super Ugly Super Course would qualify if I...

    It depends entirely on the crime rate where you are considering locking it. You have to know how common bike theft is and what tools the thieves use. It's fair to say that given enough time, every...

    Riding has caused me a fair bit of pain lately, so I've been scared to ride. Today was my first ride in eight days. But it went very well with little pain. I face a headwind most mornings, but today...

    Rudi, you probably won't like this, but consider the B&M Luxos U headlight that has a built in USB port. It's like $223. That's very expensive, and it would eliminate the headlight you proudly and...

    Great bike. See Sheldon Brown's site for all kinds of how-to instructions. You should probably overhaul all four major bearings (bottom bracket, headset, both hubs).

    See how you like the brakes....
