    Yeah, that would surprise me too. Instead, I get beer bottles thrown at me and cold drinks, yelling at me to get the f-ck off the road. :notamused:

    I'm glad you got a positive experience though.

    May have to check into the Walz caps. I've always liked cycling caps but was too chicken to wear them out in public. The ones I do have are kinda flimsy and cheap, and seem a little too small even...

    It only makes good sence. For centuries (dang, has it been that long?) I rode without a helmet. When I started riding more seriously about 13 years ago, I started wearing them because other serious...

    Take some kind advice, dont tear it down and paint it if its in relatively good condition like you say it is. Just clean it up and do some maintenance on it so it will ride good and be safe. That...

    I've studied those contraptions at length and still cant figure out how you would get off that thing, unless you stand on the pedals and jump off the saddle, more or less sliding down the frame. But...

    Never heered of Appel before, but it sure looks good. I like those colors, and with Shimano '600' you cant go wrong. Need some more pics of that bike please, like the tubing stickers, brakes,...

    My My, the sh't people do. I have no earthly idea why someone would drill holes like that in the downtube. My advice is to braze it up and repaint the area with a close matching automotive touch up...

    generally a rear derailleur used for friction shifters will not have a barrel adjuster on it (where the shift cable goes into the derailleur). Indexed will have a barrel adjuster, so you can fine...

    This is a good idea actually, but only after you've soaked it good with PB Blaster. If you dont have a vise wedge the seat (a junk one) between two sections of 2 x 4 nailed to the floor, then twist...

    What 'Giacomo1' said. The Looks wouldnt be original to your bike. If you are more comfortable with clip 'n strap pedals then by all means go for it. Sounds like you got a great bike so congrats and...

    I voted for the 20-22 lb range that IMO was more realistic of a high end vintage lightweight with racing or hi-performance geometry as sold to the public. In Sept. 2001 I bought an original mint '91...

    Thanks you guys. The ribs have seemed to heal up well, as is the pulled muscles under my chest. My mobility is a lot better but I'm still not out of it yet. Hard to sleep on my left side from the...

    Welcome to the Centurian club. If not, we need to start one (Robbie you listening). Get you some automotive touch up paint and fix those booboos and that old Centurian would look great.

    ooooh thats nice. The 230 miles was definitely worth it. The bike looks really clean.

    Looks like a nice bike. I'd go with black bar tape to match the saddle and tires, and it wouldnt distract the eyes from showing off the frame.

    Oh Tell me about it. I'm still tiding my bike to work only real easy. The other day someone who knows honked his horn and threw his hand out, waving at me. Like an idiot I took my left hand off the...

    Interesting, Tony. I did go down about two years ago on my Tommasini whipping around a car. My head smacked the pavement but my Rudy Project helmet saved me. Tore my arm up (the same one) and banged...
