    Anyone else curious to see the crown? Also a shot of the whole fork to see the rake. What is the steerer length? I'm sure there are some of us that must have orphan forks in our parts bin.

    In the Los Angeles basin, the question should be how long would you drive instead of how far. I once pursued an Olmo with pantographed record that required a Friday afternoon traverse through L.A. ...

    The older levers were smaller in cross section near the pivot, and had a tendency to bend there. Interesting that the bend is pretty close on both levers, did the user bend the second to match the...

    Not sure Torelli qualifies as rare, but I don't think they are high volume. Torelli contracted out the frames to different builders. Do your research. Some were made by Mondonico, a very...

    I know no one would recommend it, but I also ran a 130 mm wheel for a few years in one, no problems. Not a 25.0 post, I think it might have been a 27.2.

    Hallelujah! I am sometimes chastised by others who prefer small frames, for riding large frames (my seat post is not bottomed out). I just keep riding on in the comfort that a large frame offers. I...

    Kestrel 4000 vs. Kestrel 200

    What was the major difference between the two? Was the 200 considered a down line, more affordable option to the 4000, or was there an inherent functional difference such as geometry or stiffness of...

    Another school of thought was that tying and soldering facilitated rim replacements, as the wheel would not need to be re-laced. I think this one goes back to the days when softer aluminum rims were...

    Universal sidepulls, in particular, are known for being brittle and breaking when bent. I have not heard much about bending the centerpulls, but, with said knowledge, I would try to avoid bending...

    "Facet" lugged bicycle: not Centurion

    A couple weeks ago I ran into a full Campy nuovo record equipped steel lugged bicycle dating from 1980 with the name "Facet" on the head tube. I don't recall ever hearing that brand before, and an...

    Frame reminds me of my Italvega super speciale, which was sourced from Torpado. That one is Columbus, and I think this one is too. Early to mid 1970's, in my opinion.
