    Do you think the Weinmann centerpull (originally rear brake) would do a better job on the front? I get the feeling it will be a difference I won't notice, since both are so bad.

    In the meantime I...

    Which Dutch frame for a light tourer?

    I'm going to Aachen in some months and I intend to build myself a light touring bike. By light touring I mean riding with a saddlebag and a handlebar bag, nothing else (besides fenders and whatnot)....

    I'm rebuilding a Gazelle Tour de France. I've never seen this type of Bottom Bracket (I mean the way it's fixed to the frame). How is this called and how can I open it?

    You would recommend these altenburgers against say Tektros 539s? Or let's put it this way.. they are reliable enough with some decent brake levers? I won't be doing 70km/h in this, but my hometown is...

    Gazelle Tour de France

    Found it covered in bird feces and a mixture of old oil with dirt and the weight of time.
    I gave it the usual treatment of washing, polishing, new lube, new cables, new tires (panaracer pasela...

    unfortunately no... it's a maillard (it's pretty common here, my other dump find which I use as my commuter now also has it). I would like to get one, but I guess now they must be expensive (from...

    the image is from velobase. My pulleys are fine. I'm wondering if the spring (the big cylinder between pulleys?) should be opened and cleaned in any way
  12. Servicing a Suntour Volante rear derailleur

    Recently I got hold of a Gazelle Tour de France in very nice condition. The parts need some polishing and cleaning of course, it's pretty gummed up with old oil and debris.
    I've never serviced a...

    Well.. the bike is in a worse state than it looks like. Only the shifters, brakes (both levers and actual brakes) and front derailer are AX -- maybe stem and seatpost too. Cranks, rear derailer are...
  16. Very wobbly KTM frame (Not "speed wobble")

    I rescued a KTM FormulaTS mixte from The Dump. It's nothing mindbowing, although it sports the weird Shimano FF system and rear Positron derailer which I simply hate. But those can be swaped.

    Thanks so far! The thing about all these european brands (deuter, vaude, ortlieb, jackwolfskin, etc) is that their backpacks all remind me of camping/trekking equipment. I don't need so many pockets...

  22. lateral left knee pain with new bike (clip pedals)

    Hey! So I've got a new bike, a 90's Olmo which is a tad small for me (51, I should have a 54). I went with it to a bike shop to measure the seatpost, and it was obvious that I needed a longer one, as...

    Bike fitting advice for smaller frame

    So I found this Olmo, 105 group and overall nice condition.
    It was cheap, so being a size 51 wasn't a no-go argument. I pulled the trigger.
