    Labeling of Rema patch kits

    Just picked up a "private label" patch kit from my LBS that contained a few REMA brand patches in it. I noticed that they were marked as being made in W. Germany. Out of curiosity, are they still...

    Looking through some old catalogs, and taking into account the colors of the bikes (which varied from year to year) it appears that the Monterey is either a 1980 or a 1981, and the Sports 10 was made...

    There's a board specifically for this sort of question titled "Classic and Vintage Bicycles: What's it Worth? Appraisals and Inquiries". You'll likely get a more accurate answer over there.

    I've got about 3900 miles on a set of Continental GP4000s (in 700 x 23), that have served me quite well so far. Quite a bit of life left on them still. I run them with the Forte puncture resistant...

    When you live in a gentrified area where the majority of the adult cyclists are weekend warriors on Cervelos or S-Works, the mere act of rolling out on a C&V bike is a political statement of sorts. ...

    Info on an old Peerless?

    A few years back, this rusty old Peerless was briefly in my possession. Sadly, it went the way of the dodo when a bad person got access to my storage locker. Anyhow, I just recently discovered that...

    My 1977 (I think) Mirage in it's current form.

    I'm still not entirely sure about it at the moment. When I converted from 27" to 700c, an old set of MAFAC Racers were all that I had that had...

    That was sort of a shorthand way of referring to the signature block on an email or a post. I'm envisioning something like what some posters do here, with a list of bikes and details, just on an...

    Scored a smallish pannier, the type that came stock with Nishiki Safaris in the early 1970's, for all of $4 at the local thrift store. Now my commute will be that much less anachronistic.

    "Frightening" is the word that comes to mind for those. Maybe one step safer than having a buddy duct tape your feet to the pedals before a ride.
