    I don't want to hijack the thread, but just a quick question for you, due ruote: what did you do for brakes on the Gran Sport you mentioned? I think the original rear brake would have been quite a...

    Okay, there are a lot of C&V bikes that have sport touring geometry, and because the subject of touring/sport-touring bikes comes up pretty regularly, I'm sure some people will suggest that you just...

    places to rent a bike in Dallas, TX?

    I know I could post this regionally, but I'm sure there are some people here in C&V who live in Texas and might be able to make a recommendation. And C&V is where all the cool people hang out. ;)

    Hey, WNG - I've been away from the forum for several weeks, so I'm just seeing this. Congrats on pursuing this great ride (and glad to hear you weren't seriously injured). When you get down toward...

    Congrats on the new bike (and the still mostly new one). It should be a lot of fun.

    With regard to the neck soreness, I'll recommend something I read about in the bike fit forum related to...
  6. Curious about people's thoughts on locking up...

    Curious about people's thoughts on locking up this bike. One issue I've always seen with break-away/S&S style couplers is that you can lock up the rear part of the frame as well as any other bike,...

    I agree - and I think that if you're inclined to possibly throw down 160km over a weekend, it might be worthwhile to invest in a professional bike fitting. You can always adjust from there, and you...

    rootboy - wow, that's pretty darn cool, too. Did you mount front and rear racks on it? Have you got any scanned photos of it from that tour? I'd love to see it all loaded up with touring gear.

    Thanks! I'm looking forward to getting a chance to really try it out. And yes, I think fenders might be a good addition. And since the drop outs have the mounts, it'd be a shame not to use them.

    Glad to hear Jim and Heidi are both still riding and active in the community - good stuff.

    Yeah, 60 lb load on a Raleigh Pro. Bikes were tougher... and so were riders. Jim and Heidi to today's...

    Off the top of my head, contrasting lugs - whether black lugs on a white PX-10 frame or chrome lugs on any number of frames, I'll be interested.

    Also, nice but neglected frames... if it was once...

  13. 1972 Raleigh Competition Mk II - not so pretty pics

    Let me know if the pics are too big - I can downsize them.

    I really didn't think I'd be buying another bike real soon, but then I came across this Raleigh Competition Mk II. I didn't get it for a...
  14. Touring on a Raleigh Professional in 1972 - Jim Merz

    Some of you have probably read this before, but I found it recently and figured it was worth sharing: Touring Impressions of the Raleigh "International" and "Professional".

    Very cool Bates! And awesome that it fits you so well.

    What's unclassy about Weinmanns? Raleigh put them on the International, and it's pretty classy. (Not Bates classy, but still...)

    Actually, I put a very inexpensive Shimano Tourney on my folder, and paired with a hyperglide cassette, it works great. It looks enormous next to the 20" wheel, but it's very effective. I think it...

    @nlerner - I'd really only considered staying with black, but that looks really nice with the brown. And the Technomic looks good - I may have to pick up one of those. (Also, looks like a beautiful...

  19. New stem on my Gran Course - your opinions?

    Beautiful bike and beautiful photos. Convenient that you found a bike work stand in a forest clearing.

    That's an interesting idea - first I've heard it. What is it about the narrower chain that helps it land on the cogs more consistently? And I suppose it doesn't have as much of an impact, but out...
