    I wrap one layer of cotton over another, then add seven coats of shellac. There's a very slight give to the doubling of the wrap, yet it remains thin enough that it doesn't look bulky to my eye. As...

    I like a lot of bikes for a lot of different reasons. The graphics on this are my favorite, by far.

    This is my take away also. My 1966 Paramount, at nearly half a century old, is one of the best rides I've ever experienced. By contrast, a 1984 Centurion Turbo was uber-light weight but felt noodly...

    I really like center pulls myself, and while I cannot comment on VO's version of the 610's I'll let you know that I recently installed Dia-Compe 750's with braze on mounts. Honestly, one of the best,...

    I've run seven on a number of bikes, always in friction to the best of my recollection. As long as the chain and freewheel were not worn (and I normally try to replace both at the same time to better...

    Oh man. I have sworn off French bikes forever. Really. I swear I have. (Famous last words, of course.)

    But I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Follis. What a great story, and what a great...

    I do not have that on my 1989 Paramount. Have you tried calling Waterford to inquire? Richard Schwinn tends to answer the phone and could likely shed some light on it.

    I run older Shimano 600 front derailleurs on my Boulder Brevet (2012) and my Cycles Toussaint Velo Routier (2014). I presume we're talking components for the most part, right? Because if not, I also...

    I've also been slowing thinning things out over the last year or so. Now I'm down to the really tough decisions about what stays. Sentimentality is a beast when it comes to collecting anything!

    I suggested that, but he'd like to get new wheels to feel safe. I will likely go ahead and rebuild his wheels afterwards, if he'll pop for the spokes. 700c is a non-issue: he already has 700c...
