    Just got note from the painter, that after sandblasting my '87 Schwinn Super Sport, he found a crack in the dropout on the drive side of the frame. I'm a large rider and was wondering if you all...

    My thoughts exactly. I'm 240# right now, end of summer 210#. And it's drive-side, so there's the additional torque involved. But, I'm not a frame builder. Speaking of which, wonder if I should have...

    Off-white pearlescent. Not all that different from the seat tube color on the originals (with the exception of the pearl).

    Uh-oh. I'd better tell the painter to hold off applying and NOT to clear-coat it yet.

    Thanks!

    Got them from this seller on eBay. They're not exactly like this set, but it didn't come with the Tenax decal though.

    Thanks! I really don't have anything against the 'magenta' and white, but this one was repainted once, apparently with a can of cardinal red Krylon and had chips galore. But no, I won't painting it...
  9. 1987 Schwinn Super Sport help - Seat post and FD replacement size

    Two weeks ago, I became the proud owner of a 1987 Schwinn Super Sport frame and fork. No other components with it. I have a complete set of '08 Shimano 105 components I'd like to use until the day...

    My winter completely sucked (again, very long story). Injuries, job, relationship and money problems, etc, etc, and despite hitting the trainer with Coach Troy at least 4-5 times a week, I still...

    Stay away from chiro's if you've got any nerve issues. For muscular-skelatal issues, maybe, but discs pressing on nerves don't need to be tweaked, twisted and cajoled.

    Can't tell you how happy I am to read someone else with the same experience. Almost three years ago, I herniated a disc (L3-L4) and it was hell. Couldn't walk, lay, stand, sit, but I could ride for...

    I've never tried the LA, but I've owned Zeros for two seasons and X2 and X5 for the previous few years. I've got a problem whereby I occasionally glance my heel off the chainstay and my ankle bone...

    LOL! That's funny. Sad, but funny.

    He should do what he does best and stick to criticizing fellow American TdF winners and leave the 'bents to the bent.

    LOL! No, they're nice and smooth. Doesn't seem to add much weight (the bike is only 14.8lbs w/o pedals). That was pointed out in more than one review I read on the bike prior to purchase. One...

    Nice bike, George! You just can't go wrong with a Roubaix. I loved mine, and was really, really torn over the Tarmac SL or the Roubaix SL. I rode both and my back said go with the Roubaix but my...

    Hi George!

    Yes, I did. Last July I finally broke down and after test riding it, I couldn't hold out any longer. Here's a pic of it. I have since changed the saddle to a black/red toupe team saddle...

    Seriously though, I put more miles on a bike than on my car. It keeps me fit at 52 years of age, keeps me sane, and out of trouble. Also, we sold our camper that was getting used maybe 6...
