Aye... and the modern light fixture only adds to the eerie feeling.
Thanks Robbie for once again providing us with more information on these fascinating bikes!
My Equipe has the Cinelli logo on the left chainstay as you describe, but for some reason this bike has...
Yes. Albee Creek Campground is on the site of an old homestead, lots of gnarled old apple and pear trees.
Let us not forget the Esge kickstand and its tendency to loosen up unless tightened to the point that formerly round chain stays became square!
You'll want to put a fixing bolt on that crank arm if you haven't already!

Thanks for bringing back some fine old memories of riding out of Berkeley and Oakland forty years ago! I see the roads are smoother now, but the hills look just the same.
I haven't used either of the combinations you mention but I have had very good luck with Campy 10-speed shifters and Shimano 8-speed cassette and derailleur. I've been using this combination for a...
What an incredible breadth of work! You have an omnivorous eye: My hat's off to you.
I posted it for sale a while back on the tandem forum. You saw it there.
Who ever heard of a green lobster?
It may be just the angle of the picture but it looks to me like the seat is a little too high. As you mentioned, legs slightly bent with pedal all the way down is a good place to start. But this...
There is a good variety of thoughtful suggestions here. Only you will know which works best for you.
Gaucho and Mark have offered to help. I am in the Bay Area and am retiring in two days, so I...
How about Bruce Gordon's little tail light?
Here's my hybrid, an older Diamondback that a forum member was kind enough to sell cheap and ship to me. Bruce Gordon Rock 'n Road tires. The bike is a little heavy but a lot of fun! A good...
I am "vintage," yes... But the tasting panel has yet to agree on whether it was a good vintage!
If I lived closer to Detroit I'd be begging for the opportunity to play this one!
I had to deliver a rather unusual car to San Francisco on Friday so I took my bike along on the delivery and rode back home.
Looks like a splendid ride in beautiful country!
What's the elevation there?
I'm far from an expert on this, but I have been happy with SmugMug for the last few years. You do have to pay. ($20 per year I think)
As I recall we all did it the way Eddy demonstrates (based on theories of catching someone else's bike, spearing yourself in a crash, etc.) until curved QRs were introduced. After that it was...
Internal plugs on each tube, the ones in the top tube being threaded.
Thanks non-fixie: That photo will keep my simple mind happy for the rest of the day!
Very nice bike!
The top tube / seat tube junction doesn't appear to be sleeved (lugged) like the other tubes. But the line where the two tubes meet looks more crisp than TIG welded aluminum. How...
How about a Schnozola?
