    I have to say, I was really pleasantly surprised when I took my bike to the supermarket the other day (77 supercourse) and weighed it on the scale at the entrance. If the measurement was accurate, it...

    Those are both. One is a surfboard (circa 1962 so it would probably get a little love from this crowd) and the red one is a lifeguard style paddleboard -- the kind you paddle on your knees or chest.

    Seriously, though, why do people seem so eager to advertise for free? Professional athletes get paid obscene amounts of money to display someone else's logo but the average joe bike club person seems...

    Wow.:twitchy:

    That's more patience than I could muster. My wall has a little more room on it, I guess, but I kind of like having very little stuff.

    Love the mtb. You have an awful lot of bikes. I feel silly for having three. One is a trail bike and the other two are commuters -- one fixed gear and one geared (the SC).

    I was looking at Continental Grand Prix 4000 tires. They come in sort of blue, and I've had really good luck with gatorskins. A lot of the reviews on Amazon complained about sidewall blowouts, but...

    I bought this a while ago, and finally just got pretty much everything the way I want it. Here are some photos. Sorry they're not great, but I just got back from a workout so I'm feeling a little...

    Super excited that these finally came today! These are the last components I need to finally get this thing on the road. I'm going to try and get everything on it today so I can go on a group ride...

    Just wanted to thank everybody for all the great suggestions. Finally settled on some aluminum ones like those suggested on page 1.
    THanks!

    I have this set. They're Suntour barcons, but one of them was destroyed. Both levers are still good, and one of the plug things is fine, but the other (shown) is toast. If you want 'em, they're yours...

    Got to love that Florida sun, right (that bar tape used to be as black as the stem)? I'm guessing that's why mine don't last long, and my bike spends a lot of time in the sun. Of course, the trade...

    Not really, but the advice is still appreciated, and it may be my fault for being unclear. I don't want to debate the merits of plastic bar end plugs (I feel like we've all got better things to do)....

    '77 Raleigh Supercourse, original bars, from what I can tell, which means they're 23.8 if I'm not mistaken.

    What do you guys use for bar end plugs?

    I hate those cheapo plastic things. I know there are some metal options out there, but most of them seem to get pretty mixed review or are insanely expensive. Just looking for moderately priced,...

    Heavier is better, for sure, but that's only half the picture. For thieves using a grinder, a heavy lock will slow them down and maybe deter them, but not all thieves use a grinder. Here's a video of...

    I wanted to add that the link is just for the chain -- not the lock. Just wanted to make sure of that. I've heard decent things about the heavy chains with hexagonal links. The idea of the hex...

    Thanks for the link, rubberlegs! I kind of knew Harris sold them, though.

    Would like to find a shiny new front brake cable hanger. I have one on my 77 supercourse but it's rusty as hell. I'd be happy to pay for it since I don't really have anything to trade.

    PM sent. Definitely interested, but don't understand the jargon. :)

    Speaking of this, can you use brake cable housing for derailleur cables? LBS said no, but I thought I'd double check. If you can, I have a small amount of this coiled housing i can part with.

    I don't suppose anyone has a set of similar 23.8 bars for a 26mm clamp they'd be willing to sell?

    Thanks. Will stop by the hardware store tomorrow for a 7 or 8mm key.
