    Appy-poly-logies. Indeed: insert a 'NO' there.

    One makes mistakes at 1am; I've since edited the post... just so's youse won't be confused by it no more. :lol:

    Thanks VV, and good eye, btw: the fenders are indeed 650b VO 'Zeppelins.'

    The saddle's a Cardiff Wessex. It's basically the same as the VO#5 but I liked the Cardiff's logo & finish better than...

    I'm personally convinced that the Trek 820 is one of the most versatile & flexible designs Trek ever made (despite its often sub-par tubeset).

    Here's mine:

    Steel is steel; I was raised on the back of my mother's Puch mixte & have utterly no qualms about it. :)

    Thanks. :)

    Actually, I might want to speak with RHM sometime about recovering my old Ideale TB-6. It's easily the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden, but it's getting towards the end of...

    Funny story- a couple of weeks ago a guy passed me and said, "Dude- nice Pash-- um; what??"

    At first glance it did have kind of a Pashley-esque look to it (before I fitted the fenders)... It...

    My 650B Univega 'Franken'-Rover 10!

    Hi Everybody!

    Maybe I should have posted this in the 'Uniivega Appreciation' thread, but I just thought I'd share some images of my latest finished project- a 1984 Univega Land Rover 10, with a...

    Well... yeah. That IS exactly what I asked, FBinNY (btw, thanks for pointing out my mistake w/ the crown race/outside cup dimensions). See, I could skirt this whole issue with a new, better...
  15. BMX Headset question: "32.7" or "32.5"?

    Hi!

    I'm replacing a shot BMX headset (a Tange MX-2; mounted into an early '80s MTB), and I've run across conflicting statements about the 32.5 & 32.7 headset standard; are they actually the same...

    Thanks for the reassurance!



    Yup, it is indeed. It's still in the OEM set up for that particular bike, according to the '83 Univega catalog I found online.

    I wish I could salvage the...

  19. 22.2 to 21.1 Headset modifications... Have any of you ever tired this?

    My apologies, but the tagline should read, "Have any of you ever TRIED this?" (I caught that a minute too late, and of course- it can't be changed: it's set there permanently in digital concrete.)
