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.

Lugwork is what would make me kill for an E.B. Bates...

Here are a couple of my randonneuring bikes.

DARTHVADER 04-21-10 01:14 PM

Sixty Fiver 04-21-10 11:03 PM

Am pretty fond of this bike too...

1989/90 Bianchi Advantage Hybrid

Sixty Fiver 04-21-10 11:49 PM

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!

Sixty Fiver 04-22-10 12:15 AM

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.

There are three more but they are at the other house. All are 70's Schwinns. Super Sport, Sport Tourer and a LeTour 3.

Sixty Fiver 06-03-10 01:53 PM

I missed having a Peugeot so built one up with spare parts I had kicking around... found a front d I can live with and now have 12 speeds to work with.
