    Hello there and happy New Year to all!



    Regarding the above, that is absolutely incorrect. This is a wonderful forum and I have a permanent link to it on Lovely Bicycle's sidebar as a resource...

    I agree - nothing.
    But putting my wrong-rubbing blog aside and returning to the more interesting Moser topic...

    So interesting. My frame takes a 26.8mm seatpost, which would indicate Aelle. But as other Moser owners have noted, "the bike seems too good" (i.e. too light) for it. Also, was it normal to use Aelle...

    Unfortunately there is not a great deal of information on Moser bikes. The link unworthy1 has posted to the catalog is probably your best bet. But Moser frames were made in small batches and there...

    Noglider - I do like Selle Anatomica saddles overall.
    Here is my review of the last one I had.

    Speaking of modern brifting parts... Ideally I would like to switch out that crankset (9 speed Record, 52/39t, 175mm cranks) to something equivalent that is 50/34t, 170mm cranks. If anyone is...

    Yeah, at my weight the Moser's tubing feels pretty much ideal; I definitely do not need OS.

    Forgot to add that the complete bike is 21lb as shown here.
  11. Well, that was interesting... 1978 frame + 1999 parts

    I was amused to find a thread I started exactly a year ago about making my (then fixed gear conversion) Francesco Moser more period-correct.

    Well, that did not exactly go according to plan....

    Either that or know how to take photos that disguise flaws. All my bikes are filthy and I don't often clean them. But you usually can't tell in photos.

    That's not such a strange question. There is an entire flickr group dedicated to this.

    I'm only interested in bikes though.

    I've ridden the Grand Bois Hetres (in cream of course) on two bikes and love them:

    Thanks for the Schwalbe Durano tip!

    The Paselas are definitely wider than advertised, more like 30mm. I have 2 sets and have been using the older one since July last year. No flats, no signs of...

    Guys in sneakers? Come on, that is not the equivalent!

    The clipless wooden shoe story is heartwrenching. Though I can't help wondering whether she left him because he spent too much time on stuff...

    Thanks. Seems the two are probably equivalent speed-wise then.
    Might as well stick with my Paselas.

  24. White Panaracer Pasela vs Vittoria Randonneur?

    I like the version with the green panels actually. It's a fresh and unexpected combination, draws the eye to all the best details on the bike, and is typically Mercian-ish as far as crazy colour...
