    Yeah, I didn't think it would be that dramatic either. I've gotten older XT derailleurs to work with barcons on a triple. For some reason, the LX low clamp derailleur with the DT shifters needs a lot...

    That's nice. I love the look of the wide tires slammed in there. Are those 27x1 1/4" Panaracer Paselas by chance?

    I'll add that if you are using mountain components you may run into some challenges with bar ends. The front shifter may not have enough pull for a triple with a mountain derailleur, I've heard...

    The SS is the best of the bunch. If there is a Brooks B15 under that huge pad thing that would be good. Wheels aren't original either. After not seeing any of these around my area (MA/CT), this year...

    I'm sorry that you have been living in such a difficult situation. What you are doing to take care of your family is admirable, but taking care of yourself is also admirable. There is nothing wrong...

    Duo ruote: You're right it's not a fair test. I am just trying to help based on what VV said. She isn't a mountain biker, probably won't be, and she doesn't especially like drop bars. It's my...

    I built a drop bar mountain bike and enjoyed the process of sourcing the parts as cheap as possible and building the bike. Then I rode it a bit, didn't really like the ride at all. The long top tube...

    I must've flaked out on the Pivo stem, I was told it was an AVA, my bad. Anyway, I double checked the stems and one was tight because the wedge is large. The steerer is 22.2mm, so I guess it's a...

    I've been making progress on the 1970 SS above. It's down to the frame now, headset repacked, paint and chrome cleaned/polished/waxed. I had a question concerning the stem. I was told in the Schwinn...

    I picked up a 1973-1974 Atala Grand Prix a little while ago. I have to say, I'm not at all impressed with the workmanship. There are globs of brass on the lug joints, the drive side dropout was bent...

    I would love to have that problem. Did that originally come with 700C? It looks to have nice tire clearance. I can see it as a dirt/gravel road tourer if you don't already have one.

    Before you buy a new bar, you may want to check the clamp diameter. Sometimes on these vintage mountain bikes they used a 22.2mm bar like BMX bikes. If that's the case, you can find new bars for...

    +1 on Mongoose. The fastback seatstays are also a feature on the Mongooses. Does it have holes drilled in the headtube for a head badge? BTW, great deal on a cool ass bike. It looks to be in great...

    A wire brush is fine, as long as it's got brass bristles. I've also been using aluminum foil and H2O on chrome with good results. I'm assuming the rust is on the chrome bolts. For the aluminum bits I...

    I wasn't expecting an answer, but thanks for the info. I was just being silly and putting a question out there that might spark heated debate just to highlight the silliness of some of the arguments.

    I have a roof rack on my car, but also have a trunk mount that I use on my wife's Subaru. It also rests on the rear window. I've done a few trips and it's never been a problem. If you look at the...

    If the tubing was anything extraordinary, they would have probably put a sticker on there telling you. It just says 4130, so it's chromoly tubing. Maybe it's butted, maybe not. If you measure your...
