    To me, those brakes don't look long-reach enough to swap in the 700c wheels. This is a low-end bike; be careful what you spend on upgrades.

    I thought wireless had already pretty much gone the way of CDs with smartphone GPS being the replacement. But then again, this is the C&V subforum.

    Yeah, theres a crack opening up just below the herringbone part of the tread in the first picture. Excellent closeup photography; it's probably not something I'd necessarily catch in real life.

    I like shorties as a fashion statement; but not so much as a fender. But then I do a lot of riding on wet ground.

    Shorties are kind of like the non-prescription tortoiseshell or black eyeglass...

    I saw that one, there's an even cheaper, better one listed there too, which I'll buy if nobody here wants to lose one real cheap. Or maybe someone here has a groovy carbon one they never got around...

    Gaaaaahhh! That bar tape! I know that properly applied, cheap hockey tape can look OK on bars, but that ain't happening here.

    I really dig the shifters, though. In the appropriate 70's lingo,...

    I've waxed canvas before, with iron and blowdryer to melt it in. The resulting canvas is considerably darkened and to the touch feels, oddly enough, very waxy.

    On the aerosol side, I've had...

    It may be an impossible request, but I'm looking for about 10" (260mm) of 1 1/8" steer tube. Must have canti posts. Was thinking of one to fit 26" wheels but if you have a spare 700c that meets the...

    Here's an odd one - anyone want a bunch of old plain white sheets? I've got a couple of boxes of them, all slightly-to-god-awful stained. They tend to pile up in the hotel biz.

    I find carbide lamps to be vastly inferior to more modern lighting systems. And nay, I will not use them, sir!

    The one time I ran into one of these, I did fine with Channelock pliers, carefully padding the nut with a double layer of heavy canvas. It's not like you have to apply a really huge amount of torque...

    Ten sounds like a good round number. And round is good for bearings, generally speaking.

    Go for red, but only if you can get a matching red saddle and red cable housing.

    Red tires, too.

    And I've got one of those little grey wheelchair tires I found lying in the street one day. I have no idea what to do with it.

    I had this Huffy Reno given to me. Needed a bit of de-rusting, lube and tuning up before I gave it to a friend of my teenaged daughter who needed a bike. It was pretty heavy, but like the OP said...

    If it wasn't so busy at work I would have gone home and got it. Next time, I guess? Or you could have joined us on the group ride we did through your back yard last June; it was there all day :)
