    Find an Ideale leather saddle; that would be cool for an old pug. Ideales can be hard to find though and Brooks are considered pretty good replacements.

    While I would not pay $385 for the Centurion, it is not a terrible price given the work that the seller apparently put into the bike. The bike is worth checking out esp. if the OP doesn't want to do...

    Not trying to be snarky but why were you "really shocked" that a rider pulled a boneheaded move and then yelled at you for pointing it out? Expect the worst from your fellow humans and while...

    A pawnshop is going to have a hard time selling a high dollar vintage bike. I'll bet most of their customers prefer a BSO to a vintage racing bike. A pawnshop owner, unlike CL sellers, has an...

    This is in nice condition for its age. You will want to overhaul the bike and replace all the ball bearings. Grease, unlike wine, doesn't get better with age. I'd replace all the cables and the...

    Should work as what matters are the shifters, not the RD. I'm running 3x8 gearing on a 1989 Stumpjumper Comp which came with a 6 speed cassette. I'm using the original Deore XT RD and it has no...

    Lots of fine advice here. I'd find replacements for the hoods. You can get dia compe non-aero hoods (they're branded cane creek) inexpensively in either black or brown. Other than that, very cool...

    Why not go with 32/36 or even 36/36 hole rims? I'm a lighter rider than you are and I opted for 36/36 when I bought a pair of wider rims (in my case the velocity A23). These are a pair of everyday...

    Good post. I've had this book in my Amazon inbox for a while. Reading this article convinced me to buy it. It will help round out my bike book collection (which is a heck of lot easier to keep...

    I sold two complete bikes this year and a few parts. I have two frames I'll be selling soon ( 56 cm team miyata and a 56 vintage Davidson racing frame in case anyone here needs to buy a new frame,...

    Little hard to give advice without pics of the bike after the tune up. There were a number of issues with the bike in the pics but they presumably have been fixed. Still I would recommend...

    This seems like a very doable and worthwhile project. Right of the bat, I'd replace all the consumables, not some as you are suggesting. That means new ball bearings and grease for the headset,...

    The t + son tb 14 are wide at 23 mm and very retro looking:

    TB14 | H PLUS SON

    They'd look pretty cool on a RB-1.

    Assuming that the bike is in reasonable shape, it's obviously a pretty good deal at $49. You can always sell/flip it if you don't like it. Miyata makes great bikes and this is their version of...

    Well I wouldn't call these heavy touring bikes at around 25 lbs or so. Weight is overrated in any case. Still it's your bike and you may value a lighter weight for all kinds of reasons.

    There are very few bikes at this point that I would add to my fleet but this is one that I'd find a home for. This bike is in terrific shape and will make a great rider.
