    I remember them being Simplex, all metal with a slight curve in the "handle" and stamped "Simplex". And yes, I just found some on eBay. Toe clips and shoes are next. Thanks!

    Excellent. I just bought some 1971 steel and was wondering where I'd find some cloth tape. The new tapes are great, but they just don't look right on a 40+ year old ride. But no doubt, it's hard on...

    OMG. I wish. If you don't get out riding by 7-8am in south Texas, you will suffer. The air is so heavy you need a plow on the front of your ride and the sun peels the paint off your top tube.

    Addendum. I work outside during the summer months from Texas across to Georgia and I've found the time to hydrate is a day or two before a long ride (or work). If you are peeing a lot, often, and...

    Good post as the summer heats up. I left for a 30-miler at 11:30am Sunday morning with two 610ml / 21oz bidons. It was a great ride out, but I was out of water 2/3 of the way back and looking at a...
