Cool collection, cooler philosophy.
One thing I noticed, the bikes look highly exposed to the sun. Red paint can fade to pink in a year if left in a sunny room so I would advise cover's for none...
Since I started trying to get more organised with my bike collection I aimed to try and get all the main groupset. I still have yet to even see mavic ZAP! Good job hanging onto this one, very special.
campy NR or if you can afford/find it Super Record.
I actually dislike the brakes on mine, Currently I prefer the braking abilities and comfort of aero levers.

any idea what the correct levers are, LAM course?
Is a NIP 1970's team Peugeot Jersey from the amateur team unwearable?
Vintage bikes tend to be inferior to modern bikes, especially the brakes. If you want a better bike go modern, but if you want a...

It might be tough at 42 to get a contract, why sign a rider who is past it and proven not to be the next best thing, or get an injury and never ride at his best again? (Plus an older riders name may...
Todays stage 7 a late break got away. The Vueta is a climbers tour, and the big time sprinters have not turned up and nor have their entourage. The peloton is not working in the way we are used to...
Such an epic ride. I can't relate to time trials with all that expensive area bits and long walm ups. But this was road cycling, on a road bike. The most epic solo ride I have ever seen.
Did you see that?
glad you had fun. Watching a bike race live is a strange thing as the riders wizz by and not only do you not see the action, you don't know whats even happening. My friends think I am a bit crazy...
I am trying to guess which road that it, looks like it could be clsoe to aix.
My 1972 px10 is the oldest bike I have been riding hard this year.

We did ventoux in 2009 and will be there the 13th and 14th this year, its great.
The main roads to and from bedoin get reallly busy. They will also be closed from either 9/10am on the 14th or from...
I have sat and counted, and I think its either 892 or 893.
Before you ask it was pretty easy as it is well layed out, the wheel stuff in the rims was easy/mathematical and the headset bearings...
I was too busy to watch the racing this week, but I did see him cross the line on the TT, and the saturday mountain finish. Both times he theatrically wiped his nose, knowing that the last 10 meters...
58cm 1972 px10

Finding the parts should be possible in american, but roughly on ebay.fr you can buy the following from the same seller,

There's NO way I will be opening my NOS in the pack, seal up, Peugeot team kit which came from an official peugeot team in france, with musette amd hat... oh no.
is the front shifter cable operated? brb, going to do some research.
edit, its a cable operated but its bolted onto the frame rather than clamped. If you find out what that is it should give the...
I asked my friend where he got things like cables for his 80+ year old bikes, he said for many bike now he strips the vinyl outer layer off leaving the stainless coil.
