Is that in Pittsburgh? Before the game last night?
Good to see the team more relaxed than the entire city of Chicagoland.
And my point is that if you want to make a "cheap" bike like non-Pashleys posted in this thread, you need to spend a lot of time to learn the hobby. Or you can spend a lot of money for...
It's time versus money.
It takes a long time to be an expert C&V Fred. Most folks just want to ride.
Some Ambrosio tubular rims. I'm sure there are more out there, but I can't find them.

Padding is for everything else other than your sit bones. Kind of like having a cutout in your saddle, you want to protect your taint.

I'm too old to be fashionable. But I bought a pair of Ibex and Swobo wool knickers a decade ago. So don't call it a comeback, I have been here for years. ;)
And I hate this slim fit bull****. ...
Nothing sticks to polypropylene.
I got that kit as a gift. It is a UV cure adhesive.
There is a particular SLA resin that does not like cyanoacrylates. Nor does it like epoxies much. I was complaining to my print house and the...
1960-1963 GS RD has no cable adjustment screw.
1958-1959 GS RD has a cable adjustment screw, stamped Campagnolo on the back has a closed C.
1953-1957 GS RD has a cable adjustment screw, stamped...
While back in the day, I was pretty darned good with a TIG, I have absolutely no experience brazing. No, I'd rather pay a guy to do it right.
Thanks for the lead. I'll drive up and see what's what.
I have contacted a few US investment cast places. They complain about wall thickness. I have also contacted Long Shen in Taiwan. It's...
Never weighed anything before, now I know. In chronological order ...
Edit - Reweighed, perhaps more accurate. I put the fish scale on the bike stand. Before I was just holding it.
It is a different process.
My quote was for SLS, selective laser sintering. Literally melts the stainless together, no binding agent, making a structurally strong part.
I'm not sure what the...
Yes. A builder with a large ego won't work.
But no matter how you cut it, they are getting paid for a service. Some people may want their "vision". I don't.
Any particular reason why I...
Found out a few things.
Found out lug wall thickness should be 1.2mm.
Found out gaucho777 has an excellent eye. I thought for sure the thickness at the ridge was 2mm but in reality it was 3mm....
Nope. Pretty common back in the day. And I just sold a set of FB hubs (no branding). Sorry.
But it is possible to remove the aluminum flanges, rechrome the center and reattach the flanges. If interested, I know a fellow in Israel who can walk you through the process.
Those are FB (Fratelli Brivio) 3-piece hubs. Common as dirt in Italy. I have several pairs myself.
Also, that is not a single speed rear hub. I still think that bike had an RD at some time in...
Not to say track iron is cheap, but they do go for less than the comparable road bike. Quite frankly, when this 50s Cinelli sold for $2K, I was shocked. Original, had all the right bits, stunning. ...
You can always cut new notches on a good portion of metal. qed

How much insurance does the $85 carry?
For a less toxic substance, turpentine works somewhat better on gooey glue than acetone. Soak a rag, wrap it around the rim with cling wrap, wait overnight, scrap goo with butter knife.
