    ^Jeff, those look nice. I've always been happy with the few Sidi shoes I've owned, though I've only used their racing models with clipless pedals. Too bad (as far as I can tell) Sidi no longer makes...

    WNG, thanks for the updates. You've been taking some fantastic photos. Why do I feel that you've lived more in the past couple weeks than I have in ages?

    Hmmm, not sure what to make of the A1/A2 date code. I started a thread a while ago about Campagnolo crank arm date codes (LINK) and I see you already posted a comment at the end of that thread. The...

    @jeirvine: Thanks. More stats here: Tour de France Statistics


    (Btw, I corrected a typo in my previous post. I typed "1973" when I meant to say "50% the size of the 1963 field.")

    Or the other rider's lack of fitness is probably a better way to put it. ;)

    But, to my point: it is surprising to many how fast some of the past generations of cyclists were, and how favorably...

    ^+1 to my tools fitting them.

    Also, they aren't as slow as the younger generation assumes they are. On my regular commute home after work, I frequently pass another commuter who rides a Ti Seven...

    ^headloss, I respectfully disagree. The analogy works the same if I said day-trader instead of 401k investment. Using hard-earned knowledge and good timing to take advantage of market prices is not...

    I don't even mind the DKOs (Dirt-knocker-offers). I feel they help preserve a bike and keep in in the marketplace. Imagine two examples, and ask yourself which you'd rather see?: 1) a DKO flipper...

    I feel just terrible about my 401k. I mean, I purchased stocks that I thought were good values. Now I find the stocks are worth more than I paid. I used intelligence, good timing, and shrewd sense...

    +1. I'm too cheap to get rid of ball bearings, but too anal to mix & match. Sometimes, if the bike appears to have few miles or if they are original Campy bearings, I may even save the used...

    crank_addict: ^Nice. Are those the dia-compe knob grips? Velo-Orange used to sell replacement covers/hoods, but they've been out of stock.

    Keep 'em. People pay good money for decals, and Schwinn decals are not overly distracting. In nearly all cases, I think bikes look better with decals.

    I saw that, too. I have Challenge P-R tubulars on a couple bikes and am very happy with them. No quality issues on my end, but those comments and reports of rubber pealing away from the casing are...

    +1, that was my first impression too. While there appears to be adequate venting on the top, not enough on the sides.

    You can't just post something like that without pictures! I didn't even realize there was a 100th anniversary Gazelle model. I hope you'll start a thread about it when it's ready for show.
