    Hey guys, I am in Oregon on vacation and may be able to make it to this...you say riding a non-vintage is OK? All my bikes are in transit from Europe so my only ride is my Surly cross check.

    Hope you guys all have a blast. I have to miss it this year, all the more's the shame because I have to leave Europe in June, so this would've been my last chance for a long time. I met up with...

    I love this build, starting with the "build around a tire" concept. How does that crazy mix of shifting and derailleur componentry work? Does it actually index correctly using a 10 spd brifter...

    I always adjust from the non-drive side only, and this works fine. In fact, the cone and locknut on the freehub/wheel side are usually quite tightly installed to prevent removal from the axle, and I...

    Stunning build and a great thread QV, congrats. Not too shabby with the camera, either.

    As to how I feel knowing this bike now qualifies as C&V....that's whole other story (graduated HS in '87).

    Best of luck with your repaint and build OP. I built up this "Centurionelli" a few years back, and it came with this gorgeous paintjob already on it. These frames are really very nicely built, and...

    You're going to love the process. I went through it a few years back for a Vanilla, and the wait was definitely worth it. Since you're posting in C&V I'll assume you want an "old" look but with new...

    Diego,
    I work for the State Dept and move overseas a lot. I would inquire if they crate the palletized goods, or just leave it on the pallet. Frequently for palletized loads they build a...
