    i get the thread - if you ride fixed and you have a geared ride, let us know
    its in the right place
    but i think we should have one pic with our fixed and geared ride together

    Probably the nicest bicycle I have ever owned... there's only one like it and although it was not made for me specifically it fits like a glove.

    Set up two new wheel sets as I have some custom hubs and wheels built up for road riding with the guys and set up my old wheels for pootling around town.





    Gotta trim those brake cables tomorrow... just changed out my old Cinelli stem for one that was a little shorter.

    Got a new camera with a very nice macro feature... the lugs on the Peugeot are nice, but basic while the lugwork on my Cooper (above) is as nice as it gets.

    This is a new Bates... the frame and (cantiflex) fork were built by Ron Cooper.

    noir . Why the sad face ?

    That Bianchi will make a beautiful cx / tourer... there are no compatibility issues with cantis and road brakes and with a set of bar end shifters you'll have all that shifting taken care of and none of this will cost too much.

    Sad face because of the additional costs

    white electrical tape
    racks/fenders
    lower angle stem (specifically one with the brake cable holder)
    drop bars / bar tape
    shifters/ drop brakes?
    road style saddle
    new 700c 35c tires rugged
    red paint

    ...and my poor knowledge of bicycle repair. I have got some guide books though. Never thought old bikes could be this much fun, thats for sure!

    noir - It will be a pretty easy conversion and you will end up with the satisfaction that you did this yourself and ended up with a really nice ride.

    What do you need red paint and electrical tape for ?

    My baby. Pending new toe straps and seat. I got it for a STEAL. The wheels were also a great deal. I have <$200 into it.

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
