    I had the same issue on an early 80 Bianchi, the canti posts were spaced closer together. I would just buy a newer replacement brake like this one and put some new koolstop pads in.

    This page has some drop-ins and I think compass bicycles also sells a red rear one that has a standlight but it's 20$. I have some LEDs I got off ebay for cheap that have the same screw-in base but I...

    I'm a fan of the Cinelli Unicantor repro saddle and also the various knock-offs made back in the day, they often go for 5-10$ and seem to have more give than the modern kind. I like them because they...

    Anyone that's riding in the winter and has a chain drive should treat themselves to a KMC stainless chain, it's only 1/8" which is a bummer but I haven't seen mine get rusty at all. I have a...

    8 speed ultegra bar ends are available for 65$ from the UK with free shipping so I'd go that route. I bought the 9 speed version and it came with cables, housing, downtube stops and all the other...

    I'll add to the "just fix it and ride it first" chorus. I rode a bike that didn't fit for a while and switching to one that fit better was a revelation. Made going longer distances so much easier.

    Sturmey-archer drum hubs would work fine for a folding bike. The rear hubs come in a variety of configurations: internal gear hubs, freewheel and cassette hubs. I've used 70mm and the 90mm drums on...

    My first hybrid to drop conversion was a modern specialized hybrid, it was more of a flat-bar road bike so it took to the drops really well. Unfortunately it got stolen so I've been working on a...

    Since the OP is in Europe, threadless cottered cartridge BBs are apparently a thing. I haven't brought myself to try one so I can't vouch for their quality it but for the price I'd hope to get a...

    If you haven't yet found Sheldon Brown's pages they are a good resource for DIY tips and tricks. The park tools website has lots of information too. We had a similar Ross at our co-op this week but...

    I've built up a number of wheelsets with cr-18 rims and have been happy with them considering the price. I tend to run 32mm tires on them though, 28 might be a bit narrow.

    I wouldn't jump into the upgrade-the-parts mode yet... suntour derailleurs are pretty robust. Bikes from this era are nice since they have friction shifters you can keep replacing chains and...

    I wouldn't strip the paint, it's in pretty nice shape. There's also no point in painting a frame with any of the parts still on it. Unless you shell out for a professional repaint, a home spray job...

    I would check what size wheels fit in that bike. There's a Cervelo Eire at the local co-op that is 650c and it looks similar to your frame... It was a '98 I think, had shimano 600 tri-color on it, 8...

    Nice! At our co-op we have an old seatpost QR binder that has the same thread size as crank bolts and it's the right length to hold the tool on.

    Check the yellow pages for a fastener supply store. I have a great place that's local to me and I can buy a dozen m3 screws at a time if I need to. I bought 250 m2 washers for spokes and they cost me...

    I dunno if you know this but the Porteur bars are made in 22.2mm size as well. Probably the easiest way to get what you want.

    For re-chroming info local motorcycle guys might be able to point you in the right direction. For now I would try an oxalic acid soak and a lot of polish, it should look decent from a few feet away....

    That looks a lot like a Bianchi Randonneur. I liked the ride of this bike a lot, it wasn't really a heavy expedition style touring bike, more of one suited to long fast day rides carrying lighter...

    Nope, my new production srf-3 hub came spaced to 120mm but they have thick spacers under the locknuts so I assume they could be swapped and made to fit narrower spacing should one desire such things....

    The road bike is good for the parts hanging on the frame, the frame itself is good for scrap metal value only. Most of the parts could likely be transplanted to another frame without too much...

    That suntour crank you linked to looks like it might have the chainrings are riveted in place so it's not easy (or possible) to swap them into the configuration you want to. Some cranks are made with...

    The parts just kinda came together from a few abandoned projects I had on the go. The pedals on this are VP 872 that I found at the local co-op, they're a bit wider and studier than the generic...
