    Here's a Deore I (or, more likely, the PO) broke. I was quite delighted to have spotted this fairly close to home! No hammering on the return trip. It's not a bad idea to look these things over from...

    What size tires do you want to run? Often that can be the limiting factor. A Miyata 710 or Panasonic DX-3000 or -4000 will ride great, but you'll have a tough time mounting fenders with tires > 25mm,...

    Kroozer, nice bikes! The dock looks a little wet - did you have to retrieve one of the bikes after the photo session?

    Welcome to the forum. Your bike sounds great, but there's a saying around here about threads with no pictures. If you need help posting them give a shout and someone will walk you through it.

    I recently installed some on my fixed gear. It's a small frame with a short top tube so it seemed like a good candidate. They have a lot of reach so you'll need a shorter than normal stem. Also you...

    Very nice job! So no issues with the paint remover on carbon?

    I like the look of these frames and yours will be great when it's built up. One of my most memorable "rats, almost had it" moments was...

    George Garner Cyclery is still there. You could call them and maybe someone at the shop could shed light on it.

    I think it looks like a decent bike, depending on what you want it for and what you...

    Lots of good suggestions. The Park tool site also has a repair section that might be useful; also I didn't notice if anyone mentioned the Mechanics subforum here, but there's tons of good info there...

    I agree, that looks more like 56 cm or so. Be sure to check the fork/front end. The first picture looks a little odd to me; probably just the camera angle and/or fork angle, but that's about the...

    That International sounds great; reminds me a little of my '73 Gran Sport that has shed all but its original crankset.

    I agree there's nothing wrong with the higher end Raleighs, just stay away...

    If you don't find the saddle comfortable, I'd go with a different saddle. That looks pretty low-mileage, so I suspect the foam is what it is and hasn't actually lost much resiliency. At least that's...

    Those are cool. For the basic shape, I think it would be fairly easy to modify some of the more readily available cork grips. A decent wood rasp, a few grades of sandpaper and perhaps a couple beers...

    For the daruma you can substitute the allen nut from a recessed brake caliper. You'll need to enlarge the fender hole a bit and probably shorten the daruma bolt, but it's a low profile option that...

    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.
