    Bill - you really DO need a wet bike. You live in the PNW and cycle. Put an end to the denial - seek out a set of fenders.

    I haven't adapted from sunny 80s to cool+wet 60s, but I have been able to steal a few short rides between the rain showers. Timing is everything, retired hours make it possible.

    If the bike won't sell and you love it, just keep it - maybe you were asking too much - for the love.

    My 'never sell' bikes have yet to become C&V.

    I would not have Branford Bike rebuild Ergo shifters.
    A couple of years ago they were located in Seattle.

    Some things take more time and are less definitive than just putting the pieces in place and trying it.

    This ^^ = +1

    But some folks are a bit more out of the box than others.

    There are those of us who do not go into the city often, but we always defend the area for its' variety of riding options.
    Glad you left with a favorable impression of the city.

    I sold off almost all of my C&V fleet facing a life-ending medical situation. I'm still around and don't really miss them, but I have my newer bikes to ride and one genuine C&Ver, just for old times...

    May I ask how the double top tube affects the handling - if at all.
    I ride 59 - 63cm frames.

    I confess that I sold off almost all my C&V fleet - but the best are in a good place and close enough that I make a point of routinely visiting & riding them. They were meant to be ridden.

    I bought an '84 Centurion tourer that came with 40cm ctc.

    I've owned both. The Lemond was just my size and racier than the Merckx, which was on the top end of my comfort range and a Extra Corsa, century geometry, softer smoother ride. Clearly you need to...
