    Nice find. I think I'd change the bar tape and bottle cage, and that's about all. OK, maybe tires too.

    +1 The large chainring/large cog and small chainring/small cog combinations are both best avoided, as they give the worst chainline.

    I find the Vx works every bit as well, maybe better than the Cyclone, which at least ime needs a little overshifting. I do like the looks though.

    For pure function and probably the smoothest...

    Not something I've done, but it seems like there would be a lot of slipping around. Probably some decent non-cycling shoes would be more comfortable and just as effective. I just don't see any real...

    Do what eschlwc said. Just make sure you get the puller threaded all the way in before you try to pull the arms, or you'll strip the threads.

    I agree it's beautiful and it looks very practical.

    My only suggestion is, once you have the bell position completely dialed in, I'd consider drilling and tapping the stem and mounting it...

    I don't seem to know how to embed a video.
    [edit] OK, got it.

    You are a wise person whose advice should be followed. At least that's my opinion, not that you asked.

    OP, great bike!

    I just did some old Mavic rims and here's what I did. It wasn't completely painless but it worked as well as anything else I've tried (although I haven't done the paint stick thing - that looks...

    I was thinking inside the basket as well, but I'd probably try to get my hands on some decent belting leather and make a sleeve out of that. Not sure about the attachment though, without seeing the...

    +1 great deal. I'm a little more familiar with the earlier models, but someone else will be able to help you pinpoint the year. Try posting it on this thread.

    I assume that's 325 CAN/297 USD. But I still agree with your assessment. Looks like a pretty nice bike though, and admittedly I know nothing about that market.

    Someone must know who made them but I've never really heard anything definitive.

    Well as long as it's all hocus pocus and genies and all, how about time travel? I'd like to step back to the corner of the Motobecane plant and watch my TC being made. I suppose I could settle for a...

    I did a quick search and it appears that my assumption was correct about it being a titanium version of the Basso Gap, a very nice bike, and apparently well-kept. You might want to throw $20 at it in...

    I think that would be Gap TI as in titanium. But who knows - I could be wrong. Really sweet bike. Sure you don't want to keep it?

    Also, the moderators are sure to move your post - there's a...

    Not sure about the spacing.

    I like old mtbs as much as the next guy, but that seems like a lot for a Rockhopper. These things are still undervalued - I would concentrate my efforts on a local...

    I'm using 28/38/48 with a 13-26 8 speed. I'm in the flatlands and a 12-21 would actually probably be better. I absolutely never use the granny ring.
