    I have Thule roof rack set up for 4 bikes, it first perched atop a '94 Buick LeSabre, now it's set up for a 2001 Impala. I hardly fit the demographic, but then I always have been a bit of a...

    Guilty. At least to the degree I'll upgrade lower tier LBS bikes with mid-level components even when just buying a different bike would make more sense. I do all my own work though and I don't do...

    I have the extra long straps on my Powergrips and they'll fit just about every shoe or boot I own except my insulated snow boots and if I have those on riding the bike is the last thing on my mind.

    I used to use them but with my big feet when going clipless I prefer Powergrips as they allow a wider range of shoe choices. The half clips won't accommodate my cold weather footwear as well as the...

    For future reference "Valite" isn't the model it's what Fuji called the steel their frames were made of. Model name will be on the down tube.

    I rode this one this past Winter in snow and ice as pictured and it always felt really stable. I'm thinking without all the racks, fenders, etc. it would do even better. I now have some Scwalbe...

    Wow, I wish you would have told me that 43 years ago when I got my Raleigh Grand Prix and had them put on it! All those years I was just seconds away from imminent carnage....... I've had them on...

    Buying a "left over" from the previous model year can save you quite a bit IF they have one your size, especially if it's an odd size. I got a killer deal on a pair of leftover TREK 820's for my...

    Shop around a bit, I bought a new B17 in black a few months ago for $86 with free shipping, I see them all the time for under $100 and fairly often under $90. Just bought a very lightly used Honey...

    That's what I have on my Hybrid and I love it, I'm not a small guy either. 6' 1-1/2" and 225 Lbs. There is a short "adjustment" period but I think it's actually more psychological than physical...

    Except for the saddle and tires it is equipped exactly like the 1983 FUJI catalog says it should be, it has 6 cogs and the '83 Espree had a nutted rear wheel with a QR front, '84 & '85 got QR at both...

    1983 as near as I can tell from old brochures with alloy rims. Made the Espree from '83 through '85; '83 was the only year with dual brake levers "according to the sales brochures".

    Seems to be the seller's opinion too. Hopefully he's of a lesser opinion Saturday when I go to look at it. I was thinking $125 to $150 on it's best day IF it's truly as nice as the pictures show and...
