Ah. Yes. Old eyes, I guess.
That's odd. I can see no evidence of shifters or the cabling for them.
When I push a chain's pin back in to close a chain I often finish by pushing it in the opposite direction a bit as if I were breaking the chain again. This frees the joint up. I wonder if a similar...
My 2006 Record shifter cable frayed and broke prematurely (in my opinion). When I replaced it I realized it had been assembled without a casing-end ferrule going into the shifter although the...
It was hard to locate spokes on their web site but I've bought replacements for Vuelta XRP wheels from Bike Island, which is somehow affiliated with Bikesdirect. You'll need to measure the broken...
I bought mine new for $100 from The Stuyvesant Cycle Shop in December 1966. It originally had Normandy hubs and 27" Weinmann clincher rims. The crankset was and is Williams stainless cottered. The...
The frame and head badge resemble mine but for the chromed lugs. My paint is Flame Orange, chromed with a translucent orange coating. The front fork and paint job look more like a British version of...
You'd think at least 50% of Craigslist ads would show the bike from the drive side, just by chance.
I have never figured out how the Vuelta and Vuelta XRP stuff is related. Anyone know?
No one is mentioning tape rather than glue? (I have no experience with it.) I always used FBNY's method and only rollled a tire once as a result of going down, never as the cause, but I never raced....
Hard to tell but the OP's bike seems to have wrap-around seat stays while the Bridgestone does not.
Looks like plastic to me.
On the other hand a civil case could provide compensation for the victims but a criminal case does nothing for the victim and costs them and other taxpayers in court and incarceration expenses.

Takes me a while... So you're saying that the Classic model predates the 1993 date listed on bikepedia. Do you know when Terry started marketing the Classic?
The Bikepedia site has them using Campy derailers from 93 to 98 and switching from lugged to tig-welded frames in 97. The Olympus thumb shifters aren't mentioned for any year. The handlebars are...
Just got this Terry Classic off Craigslist. It had been reduced over the past few weeks from $300. I just wanted it to have a good home, but there is also the hope that if I find the right bicycle my...
Seems only fair that if you're going to identify the Peugeot as an example of poor lug work, you identify the second example as a Raleigh. Or are you a Francophobe/Anglophile? :)
On the one hand this thread is in the C&V sub-forum so might be intended for "newbie" collectors; on the other hand, the thread that inspired it seemed to have more to do with choosing among...
Best- Cotterless alloy
Not so good unless on an antique (pre-60s?) bike- Steel cottered
Not good- Single piece steel forged "Ashtabula" crank
Okay for utility use (stamped):

Charlotte Craigslist repaint. Anyone had this bike stolen?
Hard to tell, but this looks like a nice vintage bike to me, sold by a...
I guess I should post it on the SE regional sub-forum as well.
Hard to tell, but this looks like a nice bike to me. Concave seat stay caps. Is that a Stronglight crankset?
