    I'm pretty sure this bike is standard fillet brazing. In-external brazing was where they dropped silver or brass chunks into the tubes with the tubes in a jig. They then heated up the joint and the...

    Is that frame fillet brazed? I don't see lugs and it seems to be from before the use of Tig welding. Cool!

    For $75, what's there to discuss? I hope the email is already sent.

    I have done this to quite a few bicycles and find it to be very rewarding. When you are done you will have a feeling of accomplishment and pride of ownership that can't be had from simply unfolding...

    Thanks, lets just say that I'm pretty sure anyone who would be looking to purchase a bike could've afforded this one. I'm no bike snob by any means, I'm happily riding my newly resto-modded Peugeot...

    ^^No doubt cross chaining can be done. The issue I see with it is an improperly set up chain. From the picture, I wouldn't cross chain that bike as it is. The chain appears too short from the look of...

    Indeed, but you always have to look at operator error when trying to diagnose a problem. I've seen so many "serious" bikers riding around like that to never assume that people know what they're...

    Are you in the large chainring by chance? The derailleur cage looks to be sprung quite a bit (lower pulley appears way in front of upper pulley). If you are in the small ring, maybe your chain is too...

    Agreed, but one must put that disclaimer to pacify the bike snobs out there ;).

    Nice Specialissima! My size too.



    I rescued a bike today from a life of poor service and decline. I drove an hour in heavy rain, but the price was really low. It's a 74'ish Atala Grand Prix in...

    Don't worry about it. You can get a new alloy seatpost that is longer than the one in there for around $5 online. New Jagwire basics cables and housing ~$10, Diacompe grey matter pads ~$9 for 2 pair,...

    Who's blaming the guy? I'm saying that there is evidence of possible provocation on the part of the victim. The BMX guy was wrong to kick out his wheel, the guy could have been killed. Lesson to be...

    Welcome to BF. Check out the Classic and Vintage subforum, lots of knowledge there. Also, you may want to post some pics of that tank bike you've got. Some of those bikes are very desirable and...

    I'm sorry, but the guy with the camera was riding like crap. If you look at the slower rider in front with the white shirt, he pretty much maintains a constant speed. As the guy and BMX'er approach...

    I don't understand all of this comfort talk either. Back in the day if you were uncomfortable, you just shut up and rotated your bars so that the drops would be above the tops. I think the kids call...

    ZMacGirthy: Thanks for the compliment. Good luck on your build, if you have any questions, let us know. As for French specific tools, I didn't need any. You'll need the common tools that any bike...

    I did just such a project this spring. The derailleur hanger attached to the Honor derailleur on there now might work just fine, just unscrew the derailleur from it. There are also French BB cups...

    That's the crux of the biscuit there. What makes something special? A racing pedigree? An early example of a prolific design? Custom build? Cost? Everyone has their own thing that they are into. The...

    French bike parts actually are not that difficult to find. If you want to upgrade the cranks to cotterless, you can buy new French cups and bearings from Action for under $15. You would need the...

    I'm with Narhay on this one. The person who got the bike for free to use for 8 years showed no class in extorting money from you. $200 isn't too bad for the bike, but I'm of the opinion that it's too...

    Yeah, I'm with you on that. It is a mixte and generally considered a woman's bike. I don't know of any women outside of BF who really care about Dyad rims, IRD bottom brackets, Schwalbe tubes, etc....

    Check your math on the 1 1/8" conversion, looks like you may have transposed some numbers. Anyway, the quill stems are classified by the OD of the fork's steerer, not the OD of the quill. Front...

    I wouldn't worry too much about the clamp size, worst case it's too large. You can always shim it without issue. As for the chainrings, 9 speed rings are backwards compatible. Trying to get a 9 speed...
