    Happy to see I am not the only one to fetishize the Stronglight 93, but I like to see it matched with Lyotard Berthet pedals, Christophe clips and straps. My companion tells me to stop oggling bikes...

    I bought this Robin Hood for $22, A bargain here but nowhere else I'm aware of. The rear rim was unrecoverable and the AW-3 is on a shelf. The coating of rust and grease are for protective purposes....

    Around here you might get $200+ as is! I wish I had room to take it on.
    If you get it you will post progress reports of course, and does anyone ever go begging for help on this forum?

    I have used both, now I use eSnipe. I can't remember for sure but I think I just bought a lot of 'snipe' for cheap, thus making it cost less.

    The last time I added Drillium (to a Stronglight chainring, I think) it was in about 1974-5, when it seemed popular. Time for a revival if it hasn't already happened.
