    UPDATE TO MY OWN POST HERE: frame is an early one, 1983 model going by the serial numbers if that matters. Headset is Tange Falcon. CTC measurement is more like 23.5, 24" ctt, which means it must...

    My observation is, cool bike. This will make plenty out there laugh, but I think that might be a grail bike for me, since I never figure I'll come across one. Largely because its just cool on its...

    Seems like everyone is always looking for Touring frames around here.

    For trade:
    I've got a 23" (approximate) Fuji Touring IV frame set. Cosmetically good, but has ding in top tube. I was...

    By the way-- I realize from a couple people's questions that my post is a little confusing. The whole group plus the wheels is $300 + shipping. Not 200 +300 + shipping. Unless anyone would rather...
  7. Giving up on Campagnolo sale-- 8 speed veloce group

    For a variety of reasons, I've decided to opt out of an 8 speed Veloce build I was planning, so listing the bulk of it here. I'd prefer to sell together, but if need be I'd consider breaking it up....

    It does actually, because the hooks on Lone Peaks have a slide down lock that closes the hook solidly around the rack. I have both 8 and 10mm and the 10mm can go on an older 8mm tubed rack without...

    Forgot to mention, if you do buy them, pay attention to if you need 10 or 8mm hooks for your racks.

    I have several Lone Peak sets as I posted, and here's my experience. For my rear, I use the Mt. Rainier packs. I'm the type that likes lots of small compartments. For the front, I have both...

    I have a Batavus frame in the queue to build, so I'd definitely like to see what they look like. Do you have the BB with it? Or at least know the spindle length?

    I second the Lone Peak suggestion. I have briefly used Arkel (too heavy) and also cheap brands and Lone Peak smokes them all, especially for the price point. I have two full sets of front and...

    Wish I had news to report, but several repeated attempts to call the local Portland number for the amtrak station and the same in Seattle, both just rang and rang and rang..... I'm still on the hunt...

    I definitely won't roll the dice.

    Our rough estimated route is leaving Spokane, heading through/south/around Coeur D'Alene then up through the Coeur D'Alene national forest, around past trout...

    Thanks! good tip. I'll call both Portland and Seattle after the weekend. The Empire builder actually split in Spokane I think and half goes down to portland, half straight into seattle.

    Yeah, I'm wondering if that might be the only way to go, though we're on a tight time frame. We're biking west-to-east starting in spokane to Whitefish the last night before biking through Glacier. ...

    Glad you mentioned this-- that's what I was expecting. I know the cascades route, from eugene up to seattle and the CA border has that roll on service for $5 a bike. I used it from seattle to...
  18. East Glacier National Park and Amtrak Boarding?

    So I've been planning a tour for next summer ending in East Glacier and just went to check on tickets and Amtrak is showing it as a "no checked" baggage station, which means you can't even box your...

    Thanks to you all for the insight, and very kind offer of you, Jeirvine! PM is in-bound.
  20. Campagnolo Down tube shifters for Veloce 8 speed? Friction or synchro/index?

    I have slowly been piecing together an 8 speed groupset-- and now just down to needing shifters and cassette. This is my first campy build.

    Question is:
    What shifters?

    I am not interested...

    You are right on the three sizes-- plus they used american inches on their model sizing. There are a ton of links to Raleigh catalogues from that era, but here's one straight to Portage specs from...

    No, looks like we're headed through the northern cascades, rather than the southern route. I know there's a good blog (crazy guy...) that gives a route from seattle to Glacier that starts most of...

    I'm not sure if they fit with 650 wheels (mine takes 27" also-- 40/36), but my Alyeska is rigged with Jandd Expedition front and rear racks and it can haul quite a lot, though I try to keep it low. ...

    I'm WA also and planning to go Mt. Vernon to Glacier BP, then Amtrak back to Seattle/Tacoma. I have to plan my tours way in advance in order to try to coerce friends to come along and make sure they...

    You'll find a small, but really dedicated bunch who are fans of the Portage. It is/was 650b (which you know since you've got it) and in higher demand because of that. I have its little brother in...
