    Actually, I put a very inexpensive Shimano Tourney on my folder, and paired with a hyperglide cassette, it works great. It looks enormous next to the 20" wheel, but it's very effective. I think it...

    @nlerner - I'd really only considered staying with black, but that looks really nice with the brown. And the Technomic looks good - I may have to pick up one of those. (Also, looks like a beautiful...

  4. New stem on my Gran Course - your opinions?

    Welcome to the forums!

    Beautiful bike and beautiful photos. Convenient that you found a bike work stand in a forest clearing.

    That's an interesting idea - first I've heard it. What is it about the narrower chain that helps it land on the cogs more consistently? And I suppose it doesn't have as much of an impact, but out...

    One of my favorites was while riding with a group that was training for a charity ride. As I ride next to the leader (who rides a carbon Scattante and commutes around 50...

    Velocivixen - oh, knowing that I'd be curious to see some more pics. I've got a set of those bars for a project, but I haven't completed it yet. How do you like them?

    And how's the Nishiki work...

    Hahaha. I read your thread shortly after picking up my Nuovo and starting to research years it was available with triple butted tubes. :) Have you framed yours yet or what?

    (Sorry all - posting from my cell phone at the moment, so it's easier to do multiple short posts).

    Thanks! Any Univega in particular you're seeking?

    Thanks. Actually, I think I'll try to dial in the fit then ride for a bit as is. If I like the feel enough, I may keep the drops or possibly switch to more traditional looking drops. But I do have a...

    Agreed - beautiful bike. Is that leather bar tape?

    As for your quick release, it might introduce more problems than it solves, but I'm wondering whether some Loctite might help.

    1985 Univega Nuovo Sport

    I figured I'd share a few pics of a bike I picked up recently on a whim. I saw this '85 Univega Nuovo Sport listed for a remarkably good price and thought to myself, "well, it's probably one of...

  17. Two sport-touring bikes - why is one acting noticeably slower?

    I've been riding my Raleigh Gran Sport more than anything else recently, but I plan to do some work on it soon, so I got out my Fuji S12-S LTD to ride in case the Gran Sport work takes more than an...

    Wow, guys, those are some very nice looking Fujis. @VintageRide, I see you've got a Rawland Stag, too - isn't that also a low trail bike? How would you say the Fuji stacks up against it? I should...

    I think this might be the key. By all accounts I've read, the Schwinn Prelude with its Columbus tubing should actually be quite a nice-riding bike. There are definitely people who have upgraded all...

    The low trail Fuji hiding in my garage

    I've been interested in trying a low trail bike with a handlebar bag for possible future randonneuring and just general riding. However, I've held off due to needing to either have a fork re-raked...

    Very nice find, pontius. Yours is the progenitor of my later S12-S LTD. These mid '70s to mid '80s Fujis are quite nice, versatile bikes.
