    I replaced all the cables and bartape this afternoon, I'd say she looks a little better with black housing. I also have a black San Marco Concor I think I will be putting on it. The brown one on it...

    I just got done cleaning it up. It is in stellar condition, and appears to be a 1987 based off the circled 7 on the back of the crank arms. All it needs is new cables, housing, and tape. Tires seem...

    Pawn Shop KHS... it's ugly but nice! (KHS made a 531 bike?)

    On the way home from work today, I saw this sitting outside of a pawn shop. What I noticed was the Campy crank. I talked them down to $60 and walked out with it. It's a "John Howard" KHS Eleganza....

    19lb average back then. I think the lightest would have been a Columbus Air tubed frame (rare, and somewhat flexy) with drilllium heavy Campy Super Record up to 1985, a 56cm bike with this config...

    My newest, I built up this Mercier after finding the brand new frame and fork on Craigslist for $100. Too good a deal on a Reynolds 853 frame to pass up. It has all Campagnolo Record 10 parts and...

    If you want to race I would suggest figuring out which group rides in your town are the fastest paced. You will find most of your local CAT 1/2/3s there and they will likely simulate a race...

    I do not do business with LBS's that sell Trek, and 90% of the ones in NC do. So therefore, I do all online shopping in this state, other than buying tubes and whatnot from the one Cannondale dealer...

    A bit chilly today in NC, did 31 miles on a very hilly route. Did a 7 mile ruck run with a 50lb ruck yesterday, so my body was a bit sore today.

    I was kidding on the junk part. I've had many quality steel bikes over the years, and one thing I've learned is that there are some fantastic ones that have come out of Asia. I think this particular...

    I built this guy up during the past week. It all started two weeks ago when I found a craigslist ad with the frame and fork. Guy buys a Mercier Serpens from Bikes Direct in 2006 just for the parts....

    Gianni Pelizzoli in Italy will build you whatever you want him to. As simple or as custom as you want, and he has 45 years in the trade. His credentials far outweigh pretty much every single frame...

    Yep someone cutout the crank to make it lighter. Fairly common for racers. Big ring looks like either a super record or gipiemme, small one looks like nuovo record.

    My first "quality" bike was a 1997 GT Karakoram, 4130 Cromoly frame with full Deore LX Group. Loved it. Bought it brand new in 1998 on closeout. Before that, I had a "Cycle Pro" Mountain bike from...
