    That Atala looks pretty nice, it's probably as good as anything else.
    I think of Atala as the equivalent of Schwinn, Raleigh, Peugeot, etc. Mass-produced factory bikes, but also sort of classic in...

    I don't know the exact minimum insertion length, but Cinelli's don't give you much leeway on the height. I mount mine as high as possible and they still sit fairly low.

    How much does a Schwinn filet-brazed (Super Sport, Sports Tourer, etc.) bare frame & fork weigh?

    I have DC 204 hoods on several bikes, with DC Gran Compe, Campagnolo NR, and Modolo levers. They work great.

    Fully loaded cycle-camping is rather rough on any bike because they get tossed around, dragged through the woods, loaded on trucks, etc. I wouldn't use a nice vintage bike for that if I was concerned...

    I have an older ('67) Atala Record, and the frame is nearly identical to yours. It was a common practice back then to use greater clearance for the rear wheel. A Campagnolo short-reach brake won't...

    First, my wife's Klein Kirsten, which she has had for over 20 years:

    A couple years ago I was using Pasela wire-bead 27x1-1/8 tires on my commuter. They didn't last long-- the sidewalls on both tires soon developed tears that were big enough to render them unfixable.

    I have a 1975 Grand Jubile with 27" wheels, 27x1-1/4" tires, and hammered fenders, so a pretty similar set-up to yours. There is not a ton of clearance but there is enough-- those bikes had pretty...

    Professionals ride their bikes much harder than most of us, but I believe that steel does not fatigue the way aluminum does-- if the stresses are within certain limits, then the frame does not get...

    That is a cool bike and certainly worth keeping. It's definitely French, you could show it to the folks on some of the French vintage bicycle sites such as Tonton Velo, they could probably help with...

    Nice job! Grand Jubile's are beautiful bikes, and if you are going to keep it there's no problem spending some money on it.

    Another summer project, 1983 Guido Messina. Like the Lejeune, I bought the frame here on BF.

    The OP's saddle has the shape of a 90, although many other Ideale models also had alloy rails (like my mod. 58). It came without the clamp. Ideale clamps for alloy rails are quite expensive, but lots...

    1968 Lejeune

    I saw this frame on Ebay France a couple years ago but didn’t bid on it. A few months later Shnibop offered it for sale on BF, and this time I did buy it. It’s in good structural...

    Almost all the responses have been in the "solo" category. Me too, most of the time-- it's a great way to get out of town for a while, clear out my head, and meditate on whatever. That said, I have...

    Kind of depends how picky you are. The damage doesn't look too bad and it's probably perfectly rideable. My beater commuter has a very small bulge on the dt from a front end impact and it doesn't...

    The paint looks cracked all over, so it might not be structural damage.
    It looks a lot like a Raleigh International frame. Is there any chrome under the lugs? Campagnolo dropouts?
