    Beautiful color and a great looking bike overall. Curious about the FW though - five speed doesn't seem right for 1985…not saying it isn't correct (my 1985 Silk is spaced for a five speed, for...

    Sounds very cool! I'm excited to hear your story - I'll be frank: In all the years I've been a rider I never, ever had any desire to dabble in frame building myself. Who knows what has changed, but I...
  8. Any experience with Compass Chinook Pass tires?

    I have well over 10K on my Marathon Plus tires without nary a flat…they are bullet proof, but heavy. After yesterday's swap meet, I walked away with a little extra coin jingling around in my pocket...

    Pretty tough to beat the classic Jim Blackburn front and rear racks in my book. I ride tall bikes and have no problem with fender interference… do shorter frames have a greater problem?

    No, disappointingly enough, the manual is surprisingly generic, referring to bicycles in general with very little specificity - and nothing at all specific about this (or any other) model. I plan to...

    First "road" bike was in 1976 - maybe even late '75. Over the next eight years I went through a series of crummy "ten speed" bikes, never for a minute realizing they were any better or worse than any...
