I've had this one since about 1981:
man, ppl here have some awesome collection.
All these pictures makes me wanna fix up my peugeot. Which I should do.. mm.
'89 Waterford Paramount w/ newer (duh) wheels - I have the o/g dura ace wheels stashed away...
24 speeds (currently):
Bikes with drivetrains that work are gooood.
now single speed...
my bike that most of you will probably hate
Requesting a pic of your FG and that bike next to each other :D
Edit: This thread of geared bikes is more interesting than the Road 'post your ride' thread.
Interesting thread. I figured any geared bikes ridden by the fixie kids would be crap. I definitely didn't expect to see a beautiful Bruce Gordon frame with full Super Record -- although the mountain bike pedals are...wrong.
Here are a couple of my randonneuring bikes.
Six Jours: Isn't it nice when your negative assumptions are proven wrong? I loves it. Beautiful bikes as always BTW, I long for the day when I have workspace again so I can try swinging a torch around.
sold it a little while ago, hopefully will get something similar soon. Maybe more DH.
either way it looks much better than my tar black cassette and chain
ps: I hope you caught the vandals who sprayed your bike with silly string.
the cassette, chain, and RD had about 20mi on them when i took that picture. i am anal about keeping it clean though. white lightning clean ride helps a lot :)
ive only ever seen four of these silly string paint jobs:
one my mom had
one on RAGBRAI in the early 90s
one in a picture on the net
either way its not valuable but i still love it
the point of the picture was to see if anyone caught that i was using an 8spd record shifters and cranks with a 10spd cassette and derailleur
I dig it
Went on our first shakedown ride this weekend... needed all 24 of those gears as I saw everything from slush and snow to off road to long expanses of dry smooth pavement and also had to deal with some insane headwinds for the last 20 miles of my last 60 miles.
Figure that I had 40-50 pounds of gear including refreshments... and used to do the same thing on this bike when it was a fixed gear.
