    Just curious how people are doing with their B17 Imperials, either those of us who were fortunate enough to get one of the prototype ones, or those who got a regular production one. Are you still...

    What are you thinking? I'm thinking I need to make this a primary event and plan my summer around it. Adding it to the 2015 calender now (while haunting this thread vicariously).

    In some of your...

    I sold the one I had, needed gas money to get to a new job, seemed like a nice bike and I"d probably still have it even though it was one size too big for me.

    My vote would be a lube and tune and...

    Got your number written down in case you want to edit it out above to avoid the spambots and electionbots.
    Family stuff going on next few days, but will call when I can.

    Wondering if any trades would be considered. Not sure how serious I am, but I'm close enough to do a local swap to avoid the shipping hassle.

    my 56cm Quattro Assi is probably too big, too old, not track tight enough (even though it had been raced in it's history [undocumented so far, need to check my old negatives someday]), and probably...

    Many of us here have buckets or bins of take-off parts, much of which is just in the way or waiting for some unknown project to come along in need of those random parts. If you were local I'd let...

    Oh yeah, no complaints, worst case is I get two free skewers. I'll probably remove the offending rim this weekend and toss the cracking rim, or maybe make a table out of it or something.

    His 5 year warranty ran out last month and was denied, so dead end there.

    Is a evenly spaced 24 hole rim an option here? https://www.dtswiss.com/Components/Rims-Road/RR-585
    Of course now I'd be...

    Background: a guy at work had a set of wheels that have the rear spoke holes starting to crack at the nipples. He thought they were still under warranty but was told no by both the LBS and by...

  15. Small milestones, stepping stones, and weighpoints

    12+ years ago I picked up my Colnago from a small local shop. Then I got married. And for awhile before then and up until a year or two ago my weight began to creep up and peaked around 250ish....
