    The Masi Gran Criterium I bought in 1973 from The Big Wheel in Denver was $695 with full Campagnolo NR. They were surprised that I wanted a Phil sealed BB instead (bought that myself), but impressed...

    Mmmmm. Gorgeous! Love that seat lug/chain stay design and workmanship, and the fork crown is elegant. It's my not-so common size - very tall ST, short TT; too bad about the smaller tire limitation,...

    I have a bunch of what I believe are Dura-Ace level Hyperglide loose cogs (with a not smooth champagne-ish finish), from 13 to 26 teeth (all in excellent condition) and even more with a chrome silver...

    My wife's 1997 Campy Racing Triple set up (long cage RD) works fine with a 30t large rear cog. The "b-screw" may need adjustment depending on chain length to minimize noise when using the largest cog...

    Golden Boy,
    Thanks for asking. I shouldn't assume that the Rambouillet design is well known.

    The concept for the Rambouillet is a "sport touring" bike like many of the "not race" bikes sold in...

    I'm in Seattle, but would be willing to bring this bike to Oregon if that would help.
  9. Thanks for doing that!

    Thanks for doing that!
  10. FS: 2003 Rivendell Rambouillet, 64cm (ctt), Unique Color, Options

    I know that this is not strictly classic (i.e., old), but it would certainly appeal more to those who appreciate classic bikes.

    We made a decision for a local frame and fork (Redline cyclocross). It's not steel, but it is a very good fit for my wife, and meets all the other criteria. So that will do for the next few months...

    WTB: 53-54cm Frame and Fork

    While working with the frame fitter to dial in the fit on my wife's 1997 Erickson and to spec a new custom bike for her, we discovered that there's a problem with her Erickson that makes it unsafe to...

    I have the Wheels Mfg conversion kit on three (out of our four) bikes and they work very well. I was pretty frustrated with the limited cog sizes and short wear life of the nearly extinct Campy 8-spd...

    Sorry, 8s Shimano spacing is narrower (4.8mm) than 7s (5mm). However Campagnolo indexed 8s cassettes are spaced the same as as 7s. But note that Campy 8s cassettes are very limited in selection. And...

    That doesn't sound right. The inner, upshift lever should be easy to push (or merely tap) without the outer, brake/downshift lever moving. That's how it worked on the used RSX 7-speed brifters I just...

    I was successful using a PVC pipe that was a close fit over the steerer tube, but it required that I beat the pipe end against a concrete floor while holding the fork legs. Easier on the fork tips,...

    Campagnolo Ergo shifters are quite rebuildable if you're mechanically competent (or Branford Bikes will do it for you), and they last a very long time. My wife's 8-speed Ergos are about 19 years (and...

    Here's what i ride every chance I can. It always makes me want to ride farther. And now that I've retired, no more commuting, but "weekend rides" can happen just about any day!

    You've already got anti-seize, so use that for the spoke threads. Use any old grease for the nipple seats in the rim. Don't use Locktite anywhere on a wheel.

    Listen to what FBinNY says. He's got...

    If it were just a few centimeters bigger, I'd ask you to bring it along on your next visit to Seattle and I would happily buy it. But 53cm is what I need for my wife's bike.

    There's at least one model of Tektro dual pivot brake (T539) that opens wider with the quick release. Grant Peterson says that it opens 9mm rather than the typical 4mm. Up to you whether a dual pivot...
