    Quite a few mid-70s weight weenie bits on my Speedwell. The Suntour Cyclone derailleurs are very lightweight. (Another WW option is the Huret Duopar with titanium bits.) The Weyless pedals were...

    Fantastic! Congrats!

    Can you tell us more about the finish. Is it brushed/polished metal with clear? And, forgive me, but what is the blur/smudge on the top tube in front of the seat cluster?

    ebay is your best bet, but you may have to be patient for some items. A more cost effective route may be to look for another complete panto'd scapin, regadless of size, and then flip the...

    ^My first "real" bike was a Vitus, but it was destroyed when I got hit by an oblivious driver in a van. The Look, bought new when I was 13 or 14, was my 2nd bike. I started early I guess.

    First, STOP leaning your Cinelli against bike racks! Actually, never leave it out of sight. My first suggestion is that you get another bike for commuting, or you likely won't have your bike very...

    I don't race anymore, but BITD I was a bit OCD about pinning on numbers. I always pinned from the inside (so much more aero ;) ) and folded the edges if there was too much extra white. My teammates...

    I get that. I'd also think twice if I had nice vintage fenders. In my case, everything on the bike is vintage except the fenders--which are cheap plastic Planet Bike fenders I picked up for $8 on...
