    great pic. happy to say I was able to vote without logging in. not a FB fan either so that would have stopped me.

    It's interesting in that the seat tube is close about 60cm, but more importantly the top tube is 56cm. That always seemed strange to me, but actually it meant it fit me pretty well. Just looked a...

    I see someone mentioned Faggin. I've got one that's technically 2-4 cm too big for me, if you can use a 60cm. Still, it's one of my favorite steel frames. Campy GS equipped. It's also got those...

    yeah, great story. am absolutely amazed at the lengths you went to in fixing that bike and helping someone. I had someone give me an abandoned walmart quality mtn bike a while back. It looked OK but...

    best bike story i've read in a long time. someone tried to give me an orange Peugeot like that a couple of years ago and I passed. dumb, dumb, dumb! I had just restored too many Peugeot to face...

    keep in mind that WD-40 is more of a degreaser than a lube. My LBS mechanic told me that's what he uses to clean his chain. So I use it to clean old cable housing (if I don't have any new around),...

    Had to laugh at this. I installed 6" forward controls on my V-Star for ergonomic reasons. But of course, a V-Star is not a Ducati. And around here - San Francisco Bay Area - there are many Ducati...

    First bike I ever restored had GS brakes. I replaced the cables. No good. Then the calipers with dual pivot. Still not entirely happy. Was considering replacing the GS levers also but didn't want to...

    Oh man! At that age I was still riding (serious) road bikes. Next comes promenade bars and springs on your saddles. This prognostication comes to you from a guy who put a B67 on his mixte.

    chipseal is famous around here for ruining otherwise fine back roads. Cyclists and motorcyclists hate it. And if it's done with rough aggregate, it'll wear down your nice new tires prematurely.

    useful thread for me. I've got this on an old Nishiki mixte. I bought it in pieces as a project bike, and the headset was really grainy. I got it loose by making my own tool based on a tip I got...

    The two I've restored are Peugeots, early to mid-70's, both white with the classic decals like the one in the middle above. Would love that little yellow one for something different to add to my...

    I'm such a sucker for mixtes. I've bought four, completely restored two, flipped one, and one is in the queue. It's a good thing my LBS doesn't carry those Bannards, especially the top one. I'd like...

    envy is a sin right? you wouldn't believe the condition of some of the Peugeot wreaks I've restored. My garage is full and I certainly don't need another French bike of that vintage, but I would have...

    congrats on the restoration. Very well done. I've done a lot of old bikes. So gratifying. And there's nothing like when a forum member sends you parts from another country.

    27x1 1/4 = 32mm. I mention it so your calibration is not off, although I doubt you'll have a problem fitting a 35mm on the U-08. you may just get something bigger than expected.
