    Retrobike.co.uk has a decent collection of Specialized catalogs from that era, though most are in German (google translate will help with the tricky parts.)

    I think we've come to the same conclusion on the HS, it was a fun experiment nonetheless. Now I find myself riding my Voyageur SP most of the time, it even handles some slightly rough terrain:

    Thanks, the ivory one looks pretty classy too. I did have fenders on it for a while, but I don't think they would have fit over the CST's and I don't recall if I tried it. I was running Big Apples...

    Be sure to set the saddle so that you get nearly full extension of your legs, I always set mine just a touch higher than my road bike (partly due the the no-in-between sizes of the drilled posts.)...

    An interesting and related phenomenon that I'm seeing here is in the garage sale section: it's common to see ads with "no coins or jewelry" in the listing, and now I'm seeing more instances of "no...

    Shudder... That thing can hurt you in ways you never knew were possible, but falling is actually pretty unlikely. When you're on the saddle, you're essentially upright, so when you lose your balance...

    Looks like a fair deal for a Santana-made tandem with 531 tubing:

    80s tandem road bike - $350 (hollywood)

    Yes, those look like the original shifters, I have the same bike. The seller probably doesn't know they have an indexing mode.

    I'll definitely give you a heads up, maybe sometime in the Fall. We'll bring bikes this time :)

    The market has been slow here for over a year, but the major flippers don't seem to notice (if their asking prices are a reliable guide.)

    Beautiful kitty! I had a tabby that underwent the radioiodine treatment at about the same age, and it really set him straight - he lasted another 10 years in good health. I've got a Himalayan with...

    Nice find Flash! Is that a "smoked" paint effect on the head tube and fork? Diamondback used that type of paint on several of their better mountain bikes of the era, very eye-catching.

    Thanks! :)



    The wheels are Wolber Alpine rims with a nice set of unidentified cartridge bearing hubs. It's a bit of a frankenbike, only the brakes are original spec. The drivetrain consists of...

    My Voyageur fits 700C x 35mm tires with room to spare, you should have no problem with the 33mm-ish Jack Brown.

    I've been tempted to get a mini-velo for a few years and every time I see a great build like yours, I can feel the resistance slipping away a little. I've had the Hookworms in 20" and 24" sizes and I...

    What really cracks me up about this one is the way the guy seems to be trying to stay off camera in the photo. Pretty impressive homebrew wheel, though it doesn't look like it has a tire.

    I agree, someone probably peeled those decals off for some reason, the examples on my '77 TX300 and '82 950 have held up well. Great looking 970's, both of them :thumb:
