Woah, this looks great.
Probably not, as the Prestige S in the catalog is listed as using Columbus KL (a pretty rare variant of Columbus tubing), and Columbus KL, as far as I know, used a 27.4 seatpost. For what it's...
The Prestige S also has Columbus KL tubing, which is rare and uses a 27.4 seatpost. If your seatpost is a 27.4 (it will be engraved either 27.2 or 27.4 at the top rear of the post) it was probably...
Took some impromptu backyard pictures of several of my bikes today. Didn't turn out that great - I need to learn to shoot outdoors - but figured I'd share.
De Rosa Professional SLX...
Great stuff. PM'd on Gran Ciclismo straps.
I've been riding essentially the same bike for years. I did a bit of research on it, and '82/'83 sounds right, but I never did pin it as an example of any particular model. That's often difficult...
Definitely French. That Simplex hanger style is different from what I've seen in my deliberately limited experience with French bikes. Looks notched for Campy or Simplex? Is the threading stripped...
Gorgeous bike! Looking forward to detailed shots.
Haha. What was that like?
OP = Original Poster
^^^ That would make sense: I have an '84 SLX bike with the 'generic' Columbus deal.
Do you have pictures of the bike in question?
do you know who made the patterned handlebar tape that you removed?
I have the same unit. If you spend a lot of time cleaning bike parts these are a particularly good idea.
I gotcha! PM'd
Great job Randy, it looks super nice with the new components. And agreed - the bike is not in need of paint.
I've never painted one of my bikes and generally would rather see patina.
Would switching shifters alleviate this ghost-shifting problem though?
That sounds awesome. They opened up just a bit before I moved down here.
Interesting. This actually jives with the seemingly optimal psi I'd reached through trial and error. (23c, 110psi - I'm just under 160 pounds)
They did a great job matching the blue on the Pro.
What's the story behind this pickup?
Thanks for the info! Which swaps in the area do you think are best for C&V?
I'm thinking about checking this swap out - has anyone been before? It's Sunday the 28th.
I had a Gipiemme post that looked just like yours. It also slipped, and when I tried to tighten the bolt it stripped the threads. If yours are not already stripped, be careful with tightening it.
Both very cool. Love the paintjob on the Raleigh, and I've never even heard of Reynolds 708!
Very nice. I have a similar 610 and it's an extremely comfortable ride and capable tourer. Pretty much the same frame as the 1000 with slightly lesser components. I remember reading that some people...
