+10 Questions about rust, paint vs. powdercoat, polishing, stuck seat posts, framesaver, etc. They've all been answered hundreds of times and there are dozens of helpful youtube videos as well. If Peugeot and Bianchi had clearly labeled their models, we'd be down 1/3 in questions on the appraisal forum.

Wouldn't a Varsity be doing it one-better?

Btw, glad to have heard from Bianchigirl of late, after her return to work.

Almost seems like there are more missing than I knew were ever here!

As for that Varsity, can't hurt to post it again, though it's not such a big deal to put ergolevers on old, cheap, heavy bike, with kickstand...

...as for kicking this iron horse uphill and up to speed, it did at times feel like a pretty big deal to me.

I also miss, I think his name is Alan Nakamura or something like that- the guy who had the 84 Trek 620 and that really cool pic of him from like 1984 with a Stumpjumper.

Lefthandedwrench?

I always loved his posts.

I suppose some members just grow away from this place. Get tired of it, move on, get busy with other things in life. Etc.
I know it's happening to me, slowly. I still check in, but there are fewer and fewer threads that interest me.
A lot of repeat threads, as has been said. And not as many bikes of interest to me than there were before, it seems.
But that's OK. So it goes.

What about @Sammyboy? Seems to me he frequented the folding bikes forum for a while after he disappeared from C&V, but he's gone from there, too.

And @viscount, he always had some neato stuff....

You yourself went on hiatus for some time. The list of former regulars is huge. I could probably list at least 20 off the top of my head who I haven't seen post in years. I have gone months at a stretch without posting too. Some float back and forth like Randy... others just fade away.

And some apparently get banned. Not too many here, but it happens from time to time.

We come & we go but I still think there's nothing finer than a fair weather ride on a classic lightweight steel bicycle with nice components. This Forum makes me realize I'm not alone in this zany-ness. Thanks to all, especially all you regulars.

How about @ColonelJLloyd? He opened a restaurant--no surprise to early followers of the C&V lunch thread. I miss his informed posts, impeccable bikes, and fine taste in food & drink. His buddy @-holiday76 don't come 'round much either.

Also @snarkypup? Anyone remember her and that epic tour of Western Ireland? So enthusiastic and then suddenly was gone to Australia never to be heard from again.

+1 to bigbossman.

Huh, given that he and I now live in the same city, I'd be interested to know what his restaurant is. Last I knew he was an accountant or something much more sensible than a restauanteur.

I believe he was a farrier. Thus also a psychiatrist. He did have impeccable bikes though. He must have used q-tips for polishing them.

Wow. What a coincidence. My wife and I are boaters and love Deale. We started with a boat in Harbour Cove by the bridge. We got a larger one and moved it to Solomons for a while and then went back to Deale at Herrington North for seven years. We just sold the boat and related to the beach in Delaware. I missed the riding there. Most cyclists don't know all the roads exist but it's some of the best riding anywhere.
