    Oh man. I have sworn off French bikes forever. Really. I swear I have. (Famous last words, of course.)

    But I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Follis. What a great story, and what a great...

    I do not have that on my 1989 Paramount. Have you tried calling Waterford to inquire? Richard Schwinn tends to answer the phone and could likely shed some light on it.

    I run older Shimano 600 front derailleurs on my Boulder Brevet (2012) and my Cycles Toussaint Velo Routier (2014). I presume we're talking components for the most part, right? Because if not, I also...

    I've also been slowing thinning things out over the last year or so. Now I'm down to the really tough decisions about what stays. Sentimentality is a beast when it comes to collecting anything!

    Other than the (very) occasional charity ride, I'm out there on my own. Those few times when I've been with other riders, I'm adjusting my pace to keep up or to allow someone else to keep up with me....

    I suggested that, but he'd like to get new wheels to feel safe. I will likely go ahead and rebuild his wheels afterwards, if he'll pop for the spokes. 700c is a non-issue: he already has 700c...

    Nostalgia is running high with my neighbor; he really wants to leave as much of the original bike intact as possible. I totally get that. Right now, we're just waiting for the "consumables" to arrive...

    Spokes are shot and many snapped. He prefers to err on the side of confidence and safety and we're going to get him some new wheels that are respectful of the bike's heritage. He's also moving to a...

    I've had several Shoguns - a 300, a 500, a 1000, and a 2000. The 2000 was a superb touring model, and the 1000 a nice sports touring model. If it fits and is in good repair, make an offer. I'm not...
