    Well, somebody please alert this guy. The rest of us should be ok.

    Old thread, I know, but I thought I'd report my experience:

    Yes, you can definitely use a hydration pack on a bike without a backpack. You can get a ready-made 48-inch extension hose kit from...

    That looks like the one, doesn't it? Right down to the rack-mounted reflector. I don't think I've ever seen a bottle cage under the downtube before. Seems like it might get dirty.
  4. Identify Gilda Radner's touring bike?

    http://37.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbdyqfqTOm1qbhz0xo1_1280.jpg Just came across this photo of Gilda Radner with Gene Wilder and a wide-tired, cantilever-braked,...

    Update: I ended up going with a 9-speed SRAM derailleur chain. It's exactly right, though maybe a bit overkill -- a 7-8-speed chain would probably work fine. Smooth, quiet, lovely.

    Thanks, rhm. Is the purpose of the foam actually to give the saddle structure, or simply to give yourself something to land on, should the leather around the rivets fail?

    I've got a new Brooks...

    Wald is definitely still around, and still making the same products in Kentucky. Hunt-Wilde, sadly, is not.

    I think the classic brand that surprises me most is Worksman -- I believe they're the...

    This has happened to me a few times -- always in the summer. Be very careful when you pump up your tires in a cool garage or basement in the morning, then head out onto the hot road. The pressure...

    Lacing wider Brooks saddles?

    I've seen a lot of threads about lacing up old, swaybacked Brooks saddles, but they all seem to concern the narrower, sportier Brookses such as the B17.

    I've got a couple of wider, sprung...

    My wife has small hands; she likes the inverse levers just fine on Nitto moustache bars.

    I just posted a description of the cheap/dirty alternative to step-down ferrules over here. Works for me.

    Jonwvara, that's great -- I probably will PM you.

    You're right about the smaller granny gear. I still don't really want to take the cranks off if I don't have to, though.

    Incidentally, my...

    Yes, and that's a good thing. I can't tell you how many people I know who have given up their bikes because the index shifters went out of adjustment and they didn't have the ability to tune the...

    Ol Danl -- I didn't try the original Campy Gran Sport FD with the new crankset; I picked up, to be honest, the cheapest new Shimano triple FD I could find on eBay. I'm not even sure what model it...

    I've tested it on the little hills (ravines, actually) that we have around here, and it's OK so far. We're going for a 30-mile practice ride tomorrow, so we'll see what happens. It might not be a...

    Yes, definitely. This bike may well get restored to something like its original state, eventually. We shall see.

    Pastorbob, I hear you; on this trip, anyway, I don't think we'll be heading too far away from Lake Champlain, so the climbs shouldn't be too extreme. I hope. Anyway, I'll be dragging a Burley...
  22. What I learned from a triple-crank conversion (cottered cranks, Italian BB, more).

    After screwing up pretty much everything I could screw up on my last bike project, I thought I might try to save other newbie mechanics from some trouble.

    Experienced mechanics, prepare to...

    Good points. If it's neither a club bike, nor a "Sports" bike (i.e., light roadster), nor a path racer (i.e., track bike), what would it be called?

    I don't know what Phillips called that model; Raleigh called their version the Clubman, and most people nowadays seem to call that kind of sporty British bike a "club bicycle." Though it could...
