    Those are great bikes. If you are just wanting the most bucks for the least effort, clean it good, tune it up and be patient. Ask 350 take anything over 250.

    68 x 124 BB.... is this an oddball size?

    I'm not finding much of a selection in this size. I'm using the original 3 ring crank, but only the center ring as it will be on a parts bin SS. I can find 123mm and I think I won't miss that 1...
  4. That moment when it comes loose and you win!!!! Now what?

    It's a nice average frame (80's Centurian Lemans) hideous paint from PO; but usable for parts. Got it cheeeeep. Gonna make my first SS out of the frame.

    Every thing was going good until I got to...

    If you're flipping, most folks don't know or care which side is which is front , or what is traditional. On our personal bikes; front is left.

    I don't see how you could go wrong. You can't buy anything remotely that quality or that size for $100. If it fits, get it.

    Years ago, I took some cheap road bars; inverted and cut them off for a new look on a flipper. I didn't particularly like it, but it sold.

    I've got the ax that George Washington used to cut down the cherry tree. It's had 2 new heads and 3 handles, but it's the same ax.

    Is there a source for STI brake lever barrel adjusters?


    I'm sorry, I thought it was pretty clear. On my STI brake levers are barrel adjusters. They are unusable. I was asking if there was a...

    I might be able to make those work, but I was referring to the adjusters that are at the lever.
  13. Is there a source for STI brake lever barrel adjusters?

    One was already chewed up beyond use and the other just came apart in my hand. The spring has gone to that place where single socks and lost guitar picks live. Is there a source for these?

    It's a beautiful bike to folks who love bikes. To an average Joe looking to "get in to" cycling, it's just another bike. It needs color. I think white tape and housing (maybe saddle) would make all...

    It's unfortunate, but you have to consider the fact that whatever bike you buy may get stolen. Especially at school. Putting 300 clams in a nice shiny bike is risky. You want a $125 rigid MTB with...

    Things like grease, tires, seats, cables, bar tape will age and decay whether a bicycle is ridden or not; even stored inside. How much of that needs attention varies from bike to bike.

    +1.... It looks to be in good shape cosmetically. If it is in good repair, I think it would be worth 150 to 175. If it needs rehab; maybe 50.
