    What is the seat tube angle? I find it interesting that a Brooks Pro and a Campagnolo seat post don't give enough setback. Campagnolo seat posts are well known for being a challenge to set up. One...

    Actually what you wrote RobbieTunes is reasonable, except it leaves out a lot. The vindictive attacks on those who questioned his position. Lawsuits to newspapers, (which he won then later had to...

    Then use a 13 mm cone...

    We saw them long ago in the 70's on just that, inexpensive Japanese bikes.

    I think that is true for Stronglight, but maybe not for for TA.

    The frame details though look French. A decades progression of parts. Some of the details like the seat stay caps are very...

    Not a bad saddle set up guide, leaves out quite a bit where a fitter might look at other issues, but for a cyclist not looking to win races, good enough.

    Looks like strategic brand engineering to me on both, harder to tell on the second one as the images are small.
    Ritchey used a very distinctive seat stay cluster assembly, brazing style. and other...

    Yes, that might be the case that the saddle is too far forward. To really comment one has to see the rider on the bike, and pedaling. Best on a trainer where the trainer is adjusted to get the bike...

    I think the problem is related to the Shimano part with the Suntour... Not that there is any problem with that but I suspect the rear quick release is too long, designed for a later frame with 130 mm...

    I missed the original thread on this bike.

    120 mm wide hubs cannot be that hard to locate, or even a complete rear wheel. Maybe even with a freewheel.

    Some nicks, typical Pinarello self destructing graphics. Campagnolo, but I cannot tell what level of hubs and brakes. Rims show pad wear. In Southern California, it would not last at $750. At $1000,...
