    A few places recommend Dia Compe 202/204 hoods as stand-ins for old Campagnolo Nuovo/Super Record levers. Tried it, and they do seen pretty close. However, the hoods have a tendency to default back...

    It's odd how finding one of one's own grail bikes pretty early on in the addiction changes things. I no longer have quite so much the the wanderlust these days, but I'm still very much in the...

    They're not Cinelli, it's a SR "New Royal Extra Super Light" stem. Clamp cut is factory made. Only modification between this example and the catalog are the two small tapped holes.

    Spotted an older (1970's) quill stem with a couple of holes drilled in it. Right on the top, as viewed from the riders perspective. Small, with one maybe 5/8" in front of the other. Both holes are...

  22. Info on GB (Gerry Burgess) "Forged" stem?

    Anyone with access to old GB catalogs know anything about these stems? Velobase has an entry, but it's nothing more than a picture, and I'm not coming up with anything on my own thus far.
