    I put a 9-speed chain on an 8-speed crank one time, and no amount of futzing with the derailleur stops or cable position would prevent throwing on downshifts. Replaced with 8-speed chain and problem...

    Is it the Bianchi decal that you're in love with?...

    Is it the Bianchi decal that you're in love with? Or the traditional Bianchi color? Because painting a Volpe like a vintage Campione d'Italia sounds a little like lipstick on a pig.

    I was on a similar quest this spring and went with this one: It comes as a SS and has forward horizontal dropouts, I flipflopped it to FG. I wanted drop bars too, but these are growing on me. ...

    You get to do it yourself! Doesn't make any difference that the frame is steel.

    Boy that looks a LOT like my older Minoura. Definitely fine for home truing and wheel building if you add a dish tool. Mine is a little tough to do the rear wheel with a tire on it because of the...

    Never had any experience like that. I've had heat exhaustion and puked - not after I was already home though. The signs of heat stroke should be obvious to anyone with any health care experience......
