    This is my fault for not trusting myself during the test ride I guess, but the bike felt a little small but I figured it was me not being used to a racier frame. I finally did some measuring and it's...

    I rode it to work and back today, 35 miles, and holy cow this bike is so fantastic!
    Super smooth.

    Yeah, you guys make some good points. Thanks for lifting my spirits! I think I'll order a set of decals from VeloCals.com, maybe look into touching up the scratches, and spend more time RIDING the...

    If/when I do repaint it, it would be the same color I think. However, in the meantime, I think I'll just get new decals. That'd make it look a lot better for now.

    Anyway, for anyone who is...

    I ended up going to Seattle this morning and getting this one. It's scratched up, but I wasn't worried about that (a refinish is in the future), but while I was cleaning it, I noticed this dent (kind...

    I know, the proportions of this thing are pretty interesting. You almost can't tell it is tiny, and then you see the crankset... haha

    Alright, nearing the end of this project! I have mechanical adjustments to make, but visually, it is all there!

    Hey, this is all great info. Thanks again.

    I was looking for new search terms, whether it be on my local craigslist or ebay, and this is a great list!

    Hey, this is great info, thanks!

    As far as size I haven't been on many bikes, so I'm not exactly sure:
    I ride a 56cm Salsa Casseroll and it is really comfortable, but I think I'm at the top...
  10. Bikes Comparable/Equal to the Bridgestone RB-1?

    Hey folks,

    I'm looking to get a bicycle that is a little racier as an alternative to my Salsa Casseroll.
    I really like the RB-1, but am having a hard time finding the perfect one in my price...

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions and resources!

    Here is an update: It's been painted and cleared, and now I'm working on the decals.
    Here is a before and after: yes, I realize the 'before' had...

    If I wanted to get rid of that sweet kickstand, how do I cut it off? Would a cutting wheel on the Dremel work, or would that be a terrible idea?

    398170

    I have a few spots to hit with a wire brush (on the Dremel), but I'm almost there. And now I'm thinking of what color to paint the thing. And yes, I will be honoring the Varsity's place in...

    I love Universal Cycles. Sometime I feel bad for going to the "big guy" instead of a more local establishment, but man, they have almost everything and the folks there are so super nice. I've got my...

    Man, that's pretty awesome, though!

    I'm a bonehead. I have no idea why I wrote "brakes", I meant a quick release for the wheels. But, after looking at it, I think it'd need to be a new wheel for that to work?
  17. (Very, very small) '72 Schwinn Varsity - Refurbish/Refinish Project

    Hey everyone,

    First of all: Yes. I know this bicycle isn't worth spending time, money or effort on. However, I'm going to be spending time, money and effort on it! :D

    Maybe the bike can have your office and you can work outside?

    Seriously though, that bike, and the story, are awesome!

    Did you get the C17S for your wife? Or do they even have that version for the "Carved" model?

    Brooks Cambium C17 "Carved"

    Last summer I got a C17. I really, really like it. It is super comfortable and (yes, I know looks aren't everything, but...) it looks amazing.
    So, a couple of months ago or so, I filled out the...

    I just thought I'd chime in: I just got a pair of Giro Republics and the A530 pedals, and it seems like the pads on the bottoms of the shoes don't allow for a tight fit (or a fit at all) for the...
