    Well, not in every case.
    Very nice hubs, they can cope with the best cup & cone hubs out there.
    But - Shimano loved to deliver new hubs that were adjusted a lot too tightly. The result is that they...

    You've got a very nice vintage classic there that fits you - you won't experience this every day.
    My advice: don't hurry!
    Take your time, go to the co-op, learn to do the work yourself (most of us...

    That's definitely not a fixed gear - it's got a coaster brake hub. (Did you really assume a girl like that would ride a fixie as a utility bike to some date in such wheather?)

    Please - don't do that!
    People who know how to handle wooden rims adequately are few as hen's teeth.
    I would even make very, very sure that the wheels *really* have to be tensioned, as wooden rims...

    Now really, this isn't a tough one.
    It is a PR-10. For certain, period. Approx. vintage 1973/74. 3 tubes 531, gas pipe fork.
    No signs of PX or PS ANYWHERE.

    This looks like a PX-10 to me, most probably with a wrong sticker (or did they really build it with lesser stays?). All the parts, and most of all the rear...

    Yes, it's a RIH made by Cové. The serial number's location and type gives it away. The Bocama long-points and the components are typical for a Venlo RIH and your's isn't the only one with a renewed...

    DON'T do that!


    Wrong. Beeswax and propolis would be fine, but Obenauf's LP consists of oil (three oils to be precise), with b&p just added.

    You talk about style, but judge about bike parts. To me, every part of a race bike has to solve a problem. As good as possible. Which is what DA EX was all about.


    OMG!

    Yes.
    Wear dark pants.

    (This is what they all do and what they always did - just because it's common for thick leather saddles to begin staining some time.)

    Nothing apparently wrong with the frame, that's how they were made.
    It's a legit early 70's "frame A" (as opposed to "frame B" made with Durifort tubing), without over-BB-cable-guides. The ser.no....
