    Thanks for all the support. I really like the Volpe. It feels rock solid and I look forward to many miles ahead.

    Thanks, yeah a frame as nice as the Volpe deserves a better life than a cruiser.

    I recently purchased a Volpe frame from a CL add. The PO had purchased the frame and made it up into a single speed beach cruiser for which he wanted $350. In the add he stated he would be open to...

    I haven't read this entire thread but what tires do you have on your Fusion? When I first started commuting on my old RockHopper my speeds with knobby tires were in the 14-16mph range. When I changed...

    I am leaning towards brifters at this point but I have considered barcons. It think they are easier to reach than the brifters. Not clear on v-brakes, the Volpe has cantilevers now.

    He wanted $325, I took the frame and parts I wanted for $175. The fixie stuff looked nice but I didn't want to get involved in all that. I probably paid too much but I am looking forward to the...

    Beautiful lugs on the headset of this 67 Raleigh Competition. $295 seems high with those rusted forks and other signs of needed work.

    The lugs look like they have a heart shape cut out to them, perhaps this could help. I recall seeing heart shaped lugs on another bike but I don't recal which brand.

    Yeah, the serious bidding takes place in the last 30 seconds. I was travelling on that day so I wasn't available for "sniping" on that day but $120 was my limit so I might have let it go. I missed an...
