    I have one of those frame sets, also an '81, in the same colour scheme.

    Just saw these on Paceline...and wow.

    I covet the '80 Stout. But I'm also flat broke (busted the bank on a modern Ti project).

    Do you have specific insight into where XC 9000 fit in to the Suntour MTB hierarchy?

    Dream Cycle is my closest bike shop since moving to the new place - had them press in the CK headset cups on the Holland.

    A little tight with the cage on that particular bike (it's placed closer in to the BB than most); works better on one other bike I tried, though it's still useful on the Proctor.

    Seems only appropriate to add a vintage Davidson (at a Seattle institution on its way out, no less). It's nice to have that local connection, and to be able to rep the continuity of the operation in...

    You wouldn't have liked the Hope hubs I had on the Proctor before I swapped out for the Ultegras on there now. UK-made, light, smooth, attractive...but the free hub noise is often (and reasonably...

    I agree, Aaron. I just sank way too much money into a modern Ti frame (Bill Holland) recently, and as much as I was over the moon with such a beautiful (and quite rare) Moulton-built frame set (and...

    I love that this thing would fit 32s; riding mostly 80s bikes (rather racy ones, at that), I'm used to being very pleased when I can squeeze in 28s, and beside myself when I can accommodate a tire...

    Oh man. Bad news on this one...

    It turns out the bike has a slight bulge/wrinkle in the down tube just behind the head lug. Crash damage.

    You can see a slight distortion in the pic highlighting...

    Do you ride this thing through the mud, sand, large stones, other such terrain elements that we rolled over when I was down this past New Year?

    Fuso owners: max tire size?

    I'm curious, as I'm awaiting a bike I just purchased: what's the typical max tire size for a Fuso frame, particularly one produced in the mid-late 1980s?

    The bike I just purchased is not in fact a...

    I'm thinking 8sp Dura Ace at the moment.

    I think it's pretty cool, myself.

    Works great. May look a bit off, depending on the bike, the height one sets the adapter, and the chosen stem...etc.

    I put one of these rigs on my Proctor (a nice 80s road bike) mainly because I...
