    I've heard folks have used cable end caps of the right size. Have yet to try it myself.

    Holdsworth Road Bike

    I have an email in, and will hopefully check it out tomorrow. Not remotely my size, but looks like a swell deal.

    I figure I don't want to remove grease and oil, just dirt. So I don't use solvents, which would remove the factory lube which is pretty good these days. Just wipe off grime with an oily terrycloth...

    Ha! I knew it. 1/4" it is. I only have metric wrenches, so I'll also have to add one to the road kit. Thanks.

    And I have come to appreciate the two-bolt seat posts. Fussy to install, but they are...

    Thanks a lot - sounds like 120 is correct then. My 930 has a 1-piece binder bolt, that threads into the NDS side of the clamp. I'll measure it tonight. Definitely not Campy/Sugino style originally....

    Welcome to the forum. If you're planning on riding it, I would service the bearings pronto. If it's a nicer Falcon, with forged dropouts, it may be worth a repaint. There's a powdercoater in...

    I've now ridden the Trek a bit, and the ride and fit are very nice. It might end up being a keeper. One odd thing I noticed is that the seatpost binder bolt seems to take a non-metric hex wrench. I...

    So far just one, but it does happen. And that's the most I've ever spent on a bike. Also $400 SBDU, $200 Coppi. But the point is we C&Vers have nice used vintage steel bikes as a frame of reference...

    You're absolutely right. Compared to a mid-level modern carbon roadie, this is not a high-priced bike. I forget that, since I never buy new, and live in the land of $500 Craigslist DeRosas.

    Bump before eBay.

    And I measured my feet. They are 28 cm x 11.5 cm. Hope this helps with sizing.

    I had a squeak during harder pedaling that turned out to be the spd cleats rubbing against the aluminum pedal cage - I was wearing cleated shoes with old school toe clips.

    It was the 50th anniversary Tour, so there were many past winners there, thus the retro vibe.

    Thanks much. Retro was hip even then. Check out around 1:11.
  24. Vittoria 1976 SPD Shoes, size 46. $76+shipping

    I bought these, and wore then maybe a half dozen times before deciding they are just a hair too big. Size 46. 2-bolt spd cleat pattern. $76+ shipping. Sole (outside) measures 30cm long by 10cm at...

    If it were local and sized for us, I'd be tempted. C-Record tandem crankset? Insane.
