    Well said.

    I'm a vegan with no trouble feeling weak or rundown. In fact I just one a forty mile road race this week against some of my co-workers half my age.

    I picked up a Campagnolo Veloce double crank and BB on sale for 60 bucks for the pair.

    It's the first, but I'm planning on another build this next winter.

    Thanks, Cyclotoine. I always liked fastback seatstays. Though it was a bit of a pain to miter.

    I'd like to thank Velonomad for inspiring me to craft my own frame, fork and wheelset.

    That's exactly what I'm doing with my build. I'm calling it a new classic, lugged steel with silver brazing.

    I'm a couple of weeks from completion.

    Is it possible that its not all the bikes fault and you are just getting to be a more "vintage" rider?

    (I'm, as Pastor Bob says, "ascending" towards 50.)

    I'm glad I learned to put on my dark googles when looking at Scooper's bikes!

    Wow!

    Any of the steel bikes at Wallmart.

    Grand Prix wasn't ever 531 to my knowledge.

    Mine is hi-ten. Later ones maybe 501 or 502

    Try classic and vintage (my normal haunt) and someone will help out.

    I went with lugs because I knew I could pin the joints and not have to build or buy a jig. But I saw a fillet brazed stem the other day that I truly covet. That might be my next project.

    Indeed. I got my angles lined up and pinned the joints with finishing nails. I had to tweak the rear triangle ever so slightly. Other than that the frame came out of the brazing in good alignment.
