    ISO: Technomic stem, 80 mm reach, 25.4 clamp preferred, but will consider 26.

    HAVE: Technomic stem, 100 mm reach, 25.4 clamp, or maybe other stuff.

    Most of my experience is with friction as well, and I thought it would probably work; just thought I would ask the experts first. Yes, the right shifter switches between friction/sis. I'm actually...
  3. Will a Deore FD thumbie work to control a RD in friction mode?

    Weird question maybe. I'm thinking about switching my fixed gear over to a 1 x 6 drivetrain, perhaps just temporarily to see how I like it. I don't have much in the way of single shifters in my parts...

    Your excitement is understandable, and, if it rides as nice as the Mistral I used to have, entirely justified. The streamers will be a kick.

    My first thought is 1-1/4" Pasela tires, although the...

    A couple thoughts: a)I'm not sure average for all households is what you'd want to look at. Maybe top third or something. b) Back in the day, it was much more of a niche market subculture for high...

    I don't pretend to understand the economics of either industry, but it seems to me your comparison might be irrelevant.

    No doubt there are plenty of people who would say, for example, "anyone...

    I'd go with the Trek as well, but it's worth noting that it appears to be tighter geometry; shorter stays and, at least by my eyeball, a steeper head angle.

    I was going to say I paid about $220 for my Gran Sport in 1973, which actually aligns with Nlerner's price sheet! I guess there are still a few brain cells left after all.

    I paid $500 for my Moto...

    CruzCtrl, nice bike and cool photos!

    Is it getting bar tape, or are you going minimalist?

    I see your point, but I think it's worth keeping the middle ring for the improved chainline benefits.

    +1 I've used those Dia Compe hoods on Superbe, and, while not an exact fit, they're plenty good enough, at least for me. You can see in the pic below that there's a bit of a gap at the front of the...

    I think it's hard to do that without introducing large jumps.
    Here's what I've done on an mtb conversion. It's a much wider range even that what I ever needed, and I'm not burly enough for any more...

    Smoke. Leaf burning is still a thing in WI. That was the only smoke event I saw, though.

    I went west from Waukesha. The first 12 or so miles are paved and, it seemed, pretty popular. Once it...

    I'm using 1.5 Paselas and like them a lot. I'm mostly on pavement, a bit of crushed gravel trails; all pretty tame stuff.
