    I'm gonna just say, if you're looking for a basic commuter bike and you can afford that Breezer, get it.

    Used bikes can be great, but Craigslist is a crap shoot. You can get some good deals, but...

    Just be careful with the garden hose and spraying too hard, especially around the headset, hubs and bottom bracket. You don't want to use a lot of pressure as you can spray the grease out of the...

    I've noticed that too. I usually just wipe it off with a clean rag and its fine. I do have some Bike Lust, but I put that on after cleaning with simple green and only when I really want it to shine.

    I usually wipe the pads clean with a rag by just slipping it between the rims and the pad. I don't know what more cleaning they would need.

    Also, get the brake pads that come in holders. That way,...

    Thanks Randy. I did see that.

    If it's one of the models in the catalog, it'd be either the Classica or the Alfa, as those are the two with Tange tubing. I do think it's older than the catalog...

    198? Miele Frame

    An impulsive eBay purchase later, and I ended up with a mid-80s Miele frame. I know very little about it. It's Tange 900 tubing and my size. It needs to be cleaned up.

    Anyone have any idea what...

    What operating system?

    If Windows 7 or greater, just use the built in backup software. I've been using it on my wife's laptop for years: Windows 7's Built-in Backup | PCWorld

    I'm used to it, as long as both monitors have the same color quality and settings. If one is even slightly off of the other, I can't deal with it.

    I like riding bikes that are older than me?

    Actually, I just like the style. Modern aluminum or carbon bikes just don't do it for me.
