For most of the past two weeks, my life has been: sleep, eat, work, fix up bikes. Maybe ride once in a while. And the eating and sleeping has been somewhat optional. It's crunch time in terms of fixing up bikes for needy kids for the holidays, and they all need to be done by the end of this coming week, whether it's the hundreds we've restored at Recycle Your Bicycle or the dozen plus I'm trying to get out of my back yard to our local church.

I have made a bit of progress, with the help of a couple friends (one a BF regular). Here are the bikes that are refurbished and ready to donate - a few true kids' bikes and a number of 26" and 700C bikes suitable for older kids and adolescents.



In the back there are a few rather nice (in their time) 26" dual-suspensions - two Gary Fisher Sugar 4+es and a GT iDrive 4.0, along with a Fuji hybrid and a nice Specialized. Plus some other serviceable bikes of less distinguished vintage.

And the "to-do" pile is diminished yet substantial - a Haro, a Raleigh, and several classic cromoly Treks.

Looking forward to getting all of them done by the end of this coming week and under the hineys of happy kids. And hoping they will have some great adventures while behind the handlebars.

We are getting close to completion, at this point the Land Shark is complete with exception of bar tape and some cockpit tuning. The around the neighborhood shakedown ride went very well, the handling is very quick without twitch, the frame reads your mind it goes where you want it to go, no drama. This is a teaser, once its done I will put up glamour photos.

Yes, that Landshark is great and now for the opposite end of the spectrum. I've been intrigued by the discussions about converting bikes from 27" wheels to 700c wheels in order to mount and ride wider tires. I grabbed a POS Huffy recently to salvage parts to fix a 24" bike for my Grandson. Recycled the frame and the wheels sat there staring at me. Hmmm. I could do that. My Ersatz Grand Prix (74 Gitaine Gypsy Sport) is a pretty basic boom bike but does have gobs of room under the fork and brake bridge. A good "canvas" for this experiment. And it has Weinman 750 center pull calibers with the brake pads way up in the slots. The Huffy wheels wear 700 x 38c tires. Actually they are only 0.25kg heavier than the wheels/tires I had on the bike before.

I overhauled the front wheel to remove the glue like grease. Wear was negligible. I overhauled the rear wheel, same thing, and trued the wobble out of it (could be why it was bin'd by the previous owner) and removed the NDS spacer under the lock nut. That got me 126mm OLD which matched the Ersatz dropouts. The current ultra 6spd FW jumped right over to the "new" wheel. I mounted the wheels and adjusted the brake pads. Even with the lowering I still have ooodles of slot in the caliber arms. Adjusted the cables and pumped the tires to 60psi. Ready for test ride.

A quick measurement implies that I could go to 43c tires for more if I want. We'll see. This may be my new gravel bike. Or I'll hate it. Didn't cost anything.

Finished the project from post 7098, replacement calipers.
Disassembled, cleaned, lubed, assembled and installed the rear one. Decided to leave the Campagnolo pads on.
Done.

Fender and lighting roughed in. Always takes a few sessions for me to get it done.

Started to apply the Paramount transfers I got from Waterford the week before they closed. I've finished the downtube logos and the Campagnolo and Reynolds labels on the bottom and top of the seat tube. The Schwinn panel on the seat tube will be last, I'm a bit concerned about it lining up properly when it wraps around the tube. Any tips? There's no mention of the water spray method in the very detailed instructions.


They're straight enough for me, but they're about 1/8" offset top to bottom. I'll manage.


Subtle enough?


Doesn't match the original, but if Richard Schwinn says this is the one to use, who am I to argue?

Seat post day here in cold southern Indiana. It came in listed as pretty rough but really just needed some cleaning and a run through the 3M satin finish wheel. Smiles, MH

Ready to go back into service.

Wrenching in frustration today. Don't deviate from what works. Been using Vittoria latex tubes for years with no problems. Saw a "deal" on some Vredestein's a while back and got four of them to try. Swapped the Lithium 2 tires that came on the Pacenti for some new Conti GP 5000's and put two of the new Vredestein tubes inside. Bearing in mind, I had already put the others on the Merlin and had one go on the first ride. Anyway got these installed, worked my way around the bead like I always do to check for anything pinched, and then pumped them up. Both inner tubes blew at around 70 psi. I should have known better, LOL!

So from this we can safely feel confident in saying "ALL latex tubes are most certainly NOT created equal" eh?

I've long held similar beliefs when manufactured products get involved. Not at all unlike "one gets what one pays for" if one shops with some caution.

Looks good Dave, did you do the head too,

I have a couple that I want to shine from stem to stern but getting the head to cooperate has been a futz too far so far.

Been tempted to take them to the worn wire wheel but cant get all the way there, some of it is really rough, some not, hard to get it close to even all the way around so far.

I always thought that one with the stars was maybe sort of exclusive to Schwinn, knowing someone will chime in now to prove me wrong now that I said it out loud.

The top bits clean pretty nicely with a wire wheel on a Dremel. It allows getting into the hard to reach spaces to clean up the accumulated crud. I use mini wire brush bits in a drill to clean the threads and holes in the pivot nuts, and the Dremel to clean the crud out of the bolt threads themselves. I add a special stainless washer to keep from damaging the bolts with the clamp interface. I can likely do some pictures of the process if you are interested. Smiles, MH

Gonna check some of mine as well.

That one looks original from here as it seems to have been clamped on at some point.

Tx Dave, I'm good, haven't gone down the Dremel hole yet, I have an air powered one that is cheap, tough and way better than the regular ones.

Had it for years from Harbor Freight but those tiny wire wheels suck, don't last and do a poor job IMO.

The cutting wheels work great and have saved my azz many times.

Here's another project in the works and will end up my round town runner. Hope to get the frame home next week and do some investigation but I'm pretty sure it is a 1990 Series 3.0 frame. The wheels were a $20 & 3 hour round trip FB marketplace score.

I plan to repurpose the 105 5700 parts from my Quick and set it up as 2x11.

Im seeing some Velo Orange parts in the future. If it doesn’t fit me, I’ll make wall art out of it.

Swapping cockpits on the frenchy, and was so excited to use this fluted Mavic stem that I didn't check the bar clamp diameter:


26.0 stem, 25.0 bar. Definitely in the "do not shim" range (I really don't like shimming handlebars at all).

I like these bars and I live this stem, but now I gotta choose which to keep.

Circling back to follow up, looks like the decal with the stars denoted US made frames, Schwinn was surely the biggest user of Reynolds here and may have had a lock on them.

This one is later, 77-82 with the TI box at the bottom but it states there were earlier versions without that line up with the white, yellow frames and Richard.

Interesting! Whatís the source youíre showing? Look like an interesting read.
I sort of found it, H. Lloyd but I havenít found all the labels and descriptions in one place.

Here is the second batch of fixed-up bikes for the local church. Some minor classics in the bunch, although I may have called a few of them different names when I discovered unseen problems during their time on the workstand. It would be great if I had time to clean and shine them up, but the church says they can take care of that prior to gifting day (whew).



Now just three more long days of work for Recycle Your Bicycle and the foster kids, and then I can get back to making paying clients - and several of my own bikes - happy
