    Hah! No kidding. Want to trade for a Bridgestone 600? ;)
  3. 1984 61cm Bridgestone 600 w/ Suntour Cyclone II & more

    I hate having to do this, but as much as I absolutely love this bike, I don't ride it and could use the money for other projects. I loved cleaning it up and refurb'ing it.

    No problem -- the tape we use is actually a 21mm tape, which covers the A23 sidewall to sidewall just about perfectly. As you're taping them, keep some tension on the tape to "stretch" it a bit and...

    The rims are tubeless-ready. We do not recommend the use of cloth or any thicker rim tape with the A23 due to the tubeless ready rim profile. Many people do use Velox, but in our experience it can...

    Any deep section rim like the B43 is going to be on the heavy side -- more material, more weight. We also don't manufacture the B43 anymore, so finding them might be tough. There are also numerous...

    We don't make the Spartacus any longer, but you might try our A23 wheelset. In the UK, Brick Lane Bikes handles is our main distributor. The A23 is a lighter rim than the Spartacus, with a more...

    They do! I forget the exact figure, but they have something like a 400psi blowout strength, so they handle high pressure really well. I've got one set myself that I've probably used in a dozen...

    If you continue to have issues, I would recommend switching to plugs or plastic tape like our Velotape or Stan's. Velox does definitely absorb water, and will shift when it does. As far as plug...

    Pinch flats aren't caused by rim tape. What tire pressure are you running? Are you sure its a true pinch flat?

    Boiled linseed oil is a pretty decent choice. I would second the recommendation to not use anti-seize. We use something similar to a blue Locktite, but for a beginner wheel builder it might setup too...

    Same here! I was surprised/disappointed it was shipped folded as I intended to frame it. I'll probably flatten it out and have it steamed and mounted to some foam core for hanging.

    I should add that 700c wheels will really throw off the geometry of the bike as well. A 26" wheel is 559mm, a 700c wheel is 622mm. Provided you're running a tire of roughly the same size on both (it...

    It's much, much more subtle than the Zipp design, but more apparent when you see the actual rim vs. the drawing.

    It's actually optimized to work with 23-28c tires, as the internal width is around 20mm. It is disc only, which may or may not be a dealbreaker for some riders. I believe this is a 23c mounted up in...

    Might I suggest the Aileron? It's 25x28 and pretty bomb proof, and a ~460g, actually lighter than the Deep V.

    I don't think the chain will make a noticeable difference in shifting quality. There have been minor tweaks over the years to chain design, but its remained relatively the same for ~100 years.
