As well as 99% of all other roads.
I've never seen one of the Paul's on a fixed gear. The "blingbling fixie crowd" is not into brakes. I've seen them almost exclusively on randonneurs and passhunters.
It's screaming to have it's derailer cable cut.
I don't think I've posted this yet, the frame is about '82, the "modern" components date from the late 90's and are arguably classic themselves.
Ergo bars are crap every which way. Even the cool roadie kids are over them. It sounds like you need to trade your Cinelli 65's for 64's. That said, there is a reason that there are about 12,768...
You do something nice for a guy and he can't even cough up 10 measly bucks? Who needs enemies?
Super short chainstays were a bit a fetish in the late 80's, mostly on high-end Italians. I don't think I'd say it's normal, but it's not unusual.
I have one of these. Unfortunately I don't know anything about it and yours is the first time I've seen another one. Mine doesn't have the M. Wards decals but does say Elite, and made in Belgium. ...
My next frame will be a city bike with a front rack. Generally, what adjustments are made to standard road geometry to carry 15-20 lbs up front?
Looks like it may be time to jump ship.
There is way too much grease on your chain(which you shouldn't have to touch anyway), also you're a bit of a nancy.
Depression is a serious chronic illness. I'm sorry you're sad but it's not depression.
Cranks are Record w/ Nouvo Record chainrings, and yes they are missing the dust caps.
Yeah it's mid to high 80's here all week, finally a break from the heat and it's beautiful.
If you got it on Ebay at least one other person was willing to pay within 5 to 10 bucks or so of what you did. Seems unlikely a well presented auction couldn't get you at least what you paid for it....
Looks like a lot of bend to me.
You can tell, from this picture, how much to raise his seat to within an eight of an inch? That is very impressive.
Hell, I still spend a lot of time on Record 8 speed.
What about this list don't you understand?
How about a dozen?
USE Alien Carbon
New Ultimate Carbon
Woodman Post EL
Bolt Precision Bold Ti Ultralight
A Veloce group and a set of Khamsins can be had at PBK for 600 bucks.
It's hard to tell, but it sure looks like your saddle is too low as well. I agree that you need to bend your arms (aren't your shoulders/neck/wrists sore?) but it looks like if you did your elbows...
This is my favorite:
This guy titled his review "Nice Bike" and gave it 4 stars
