    Ride it?

    Or put all those nice new parts on a lighter, more responsive frame and ride that. Either way, riding is good.

    I started riding regularly again at 48 and have had four notable crashes in the last five years, so my anecdotal evidence fits the curve perfectly. Fortunately, no real injuries, just impressive...

    Chuckk, I think I missed the part of where it went from blue/sliver to red. Did you paint it yourself or send it out somewhere?

    That's my take, too. I acquired my 103 Peugeot about the same time I got my 1020-tubed Ross Super Grand Tour Professional. Night and day between those two. In weight (by 3+ lbs) and ride quality,...

    Probably Danish, not Czech; but still pretty cute :) Or maybe contract-built in CZ for DK retailer?

    Here's WNG muscling his way up to the peak of Mt. Muller about a year ago.

    The good: he's on a nice light Kona Lava Dome
    The bad: that trail is crazy steep in places
    The ugly: some dumb jerk...

    That's me, too. With the chain on the bike, hose it down with WD-40, wipe it dry, then hose it down with White lithium spray or (lately) Liquid Wrench chain and cable lube, from the hardware store. ...

    As much as I worry about the strength of vintage alloy seat post clamps, I seriously doubt CF tubes were ever meant to be stressed in that direction. My guess is it will break before it's torqued...

    I don't. I had a PH10LE made from that "junk" and it was fine; just a bit too small for me. And you're right, it's actually pretty light stuff.

    I'm with crank_addict.

    Let him hold the money while you do it, but if he's not going to let you test ride it, that's the same as buying a used TV from the guy without him letting you plug it in...

    Yeah, if it's your size, it's very nice bike to ride. skyman226, are you in the neighborhood of 5'7" or so?

    At any rate, post some more pics when you can take it out in the daylight with a...

    Good timing, I'm stuck at work all night tonight and will need something good to watch after I spend three hours watching the Seattle Mariners lose another winnable game against a lousy opponent :)

    +1 on it being too spendy (even for Toronto). Very shiny, though, even if the bars and saddle look like just random stuff thrown on.

    BTW, We have a dedicated thread for CL and eBay finds.

    Best one yet; got your school mascot in the name, a nice subtle joke about dancing on the pedals (which most won't get, but still) and it avoids the tired pedophile joke which could be a possible...

    Get a Simplex one to go with the RD. Even if it's one with the plastic mounting clamp which eventually breaks (and it well may) you can always get another one for cheap. I've got one or two in...

    On most vintage bikes, I prefer the "show side" to be free from big, gaudy logos on the tires anyway. I say big ups to Veloflex for doing it that way :thumb:
