I want one of those!
OP: Pedantics aside I think it is cool you are rocking a fast commute with your IGH bike.
Pedantics: Any argument for IGH being faster than mechs is a going to be a tough one to sell because...
That bike has more personality than a couple people I know. Awesome.
DUDE! That Ross looks like a frame for somebody 7 feet tall, but your new Transeo looks good for a 6 footer. Are you a shape-shifter?
Anybody ever strip the cranks, chain, saddle and bars off one of these and affix baskets?
The only thing ugly about that bike is the handlebar stem. That is a sweet bike. Fix it up, customize it.
Nope, and the tires I put in were worn down knobbies.
Yeah, high quality tires are the best choice overall, especially for nice bikes.
The used-tire tire liner is more appropriate for clunker tank cargo type bikes.
I know this belongs in the Bike Mechanics forum but I figured some commuters would appreciate this. I've done it with great success.
I cut the sidewalls (and bead, of course) off old tires (low...
Anybody try the dirtbag approach of using old tires as tire liners?
I cut the sidewalls off and remaining tread slips inside the new tire perfectly.
I've run them with no problems.
Man, I like your DIY style. Make it!
That IS a lovely bicycle.
Am I the only one who burst out laughing at this? Thank you DVC45 for sharing your humorous tale of misfortune.

Beauty vintage steed, by the way.

Been there, done that, without spending stacks of cash. Quick and dirty ghetto brake mod and I ran 633's (27"ers).
Looks like the tire rubs the fork crown, but even at max tire pressure there was...
Arguing the merits of 622 wheels on 559 wheel frames is fine and good, but back to the OP:
I found Mavic Caliper Adjuster at this website. Note that it is ONE caliper, for ONE set of brakes. So...
I'm feeling rather impulsive.
You sir, are my kinda guy!
I loves the ghetto stylie.
I must have those handlbars.
I have a mixte that is crying out for those bars.
This is an excellent read.
My bike is so light I must tether it to the floor or it will sail around on the slightest air current.
Good thing I spent several thousand dollars on it, so it is strong enough to wistand my fat...

And no point discussing it merits and/or faults: just looks at his smile!
Can't lock the thread until the Paramount gets properly lavished with praise.
I especially like the red bar tape that matches the red brake pads!
No doubt a top ten (or top five) vintage...
That is way too nice a trail bike to mod into a commuter, IMHO. Old road bike and get jiggy, or freddy.
Yay! Trekking Bars love!
Okay, so it's not a commuter. I've got three Trekking bars and two of them are on my trail bikes. ...
