    I see the pics. It's a decent bike but you should temper your value expectations, no way it's a $550 bike, and especially not a $270 frame. It's a middle of the lineup or a little lower machine. My...

    I have been hurt several times working on bikes or motorcycles, not seriously, thankfully. Almost all of the injuries could have been prevented by wearing gloves or being a little more patient with...

    I'd go look at it if it was close, see what's salvageable, and make an offer based on that. Based on what I see here, If the guy would take $40 I'd buy it. I'm assuming the frame and fork are toast.

    It causes a lot of wear to the drivetrain, which shortens the life. Plus it's usually noisy.

    Whether it's a law or not, I don't know, but the cops here (and in many other places) regularly abuse their authority.

    Consumer Reports gave these helmets fairly bad ratings a while back. I don't know if they have changed anything to update them, but the general consensus is that skateboard style helmets are not the...

    Oh, no way. The owner has lowered the value with the repaint, bad decals, mismatched parts, etc. My guess is that it's a 60's Gran Sport, but that's just a guess. We can't even say for sure that it's...

    I like brown (or maybe honey) and dark green together. Reminds me of the seats in old British sportscars.

    I do it with hot glue. It's a surprising hassle to remove. I usually need a hair dryer and a magnet.

    Is there a serial number? Check the bottom bracket. The bike is probably not 80's. Might be 70's. It doesn't look like a high end bike (unless it's a lot older than claimed) and I suspect that the...

    Maybe I'm just lucky, but I have had no issues getting NR derailleurs to work with 5 and 6 speed freewheels with a 28T big cog. Didn't have to do anything special, it just worked fine.

    I think it's just a mismatched dust cap that's more modern--but we won't know unless he sends a photo.

    I also think he's talking about a dust cap. I have screwed up the hex socket on many a dust cap trying to get it off. Good luck. I recommend freeze off.

    You are a funny guy. I thought you were done here? Anyway, I'd say we're all dealing with your issues now.
