    Sure, ride what you like. There's only one practical concern I can think of: I've seen a lot of step-through frames where the seat tube has bent toward the rear of the bike where it joins the top...

    OK, the OP's question is a little far-fetched, but I often have wondered how much chrome I've inhaled while de-rusting old steel rims with a wire brush on an electric drill. I usually do it outside,...

    I had a bad experience with an IRD freewheel (13-24 5-speed, if I recall correctly): new from the factory, the ratchet pawls would hang up at random moments, leaving me with no drive. I've had much...

    +1. Also, that saddle looks like it could give you a nasty surprise when you hit a bump. Can the tension be adjusted?

    Oh, never mind, just found this thread. Talk amongst yerselves.
  8. Durham elliptical chainring? Very weird.

    Just saw this on CL. Can't find a whole lot about that crazy chainring. Any knowledge? What was the deal? Anyway, at least the death fork has been replaced.

    I've got a pair of fenders from a '70s department-store 3-speed (think Columbia or Free Spirit), yours for the cost of shipping. They're brown. PM me if you're interested.

    In the 1980s and 1990s, suburban sprawl totally took over the USA -- not that it hadn't been a problem in the '50s-'70s, but it wasn't 'til the '80s that most Americans lived in places where you...
  12. NOS 1939 Raleigh Tourist on eBay...?

    Gorgeous bike, but something about the presentation looks fishy to me...for $27,000, you'd think they could take some better pictures. No, wait, eBay wants to give me a $15 coupon, so's it'd only be...
  13. Any NC C&Vers going to the North Carolina Bicycle Summit?

    Hey, y'all. Is anybody (else) going to the North Carolina Bicycle Summit, in Greensboro, Oct. 10-12? I went last year -- as a local advocate, not a professional -- and found it pretty useful. ...

    Sheldon says use any ol' friction shifter for the left side and a regular 3-speed trigger for the right. Have you found that to be bad advice?

    The box is supposed to have one of those...

    That fork snap is terrifying -- glad you're ok. Tell us which Panasonic model had that fork, so we can avoid it in the future?

    Both bikes are nice, but the Fuji is really nice. Great job!
  17. School me on Sturmey-Archer 5-speeds?

    I've got a chance to buy a box of Sturmey-Archer hubs for a very good price from an older gent who says they were all in good working order when he put them away, sometime in the late 1970s. He says...

    All the suggestions here are good. Unless you're totally married to the gear ratio you've got, I'd change the inner chainring for a smaller one, first -- it's easier than messing around with the BB....

    1984 Motobecane Nomade Mixte City Build

    BEFORE: 4th-rate road bike. 1984 Motobecane Nomade mixte. All original, I think -- steel rims, plastic-coated drop bars w/ turkey levers, Sachs-Huret derailleurs, general cruddiness.

    That looks like the one, doesn't it? Right down to the rack-mounted reflector. I don't think I've ever seen a bottle cage under the downtube before. Seems like it might get dirty.
