I actually think I'm going to go with a compromise. I'm going to take the Centaur/Chorus mix from my Caldaro and move it to the Gazelle. Then, I can take my time and slowly acquire some vintage parts.

Caloso,
good plan.

Diablo Scott, I have 3 dutch bikes and a 4th on the way and
don't have any problems with the BBs (crosses fingers, spits over shoulder and
prays to St. Tullio and St. Est).

Yeah there's no such thing as "The Dreaded Dutch Bottom Bracket Threads"... Now you're in on the joke and you can play along the next time some newb posts about their new Batavuus or Rooi (sp?) or whatever. CalOso I'm sure didn't fall for it.

I was skeptical, but I figured I better check Sheldon's website to be sure!

My son loves the bike. The Shimano rsx brifters and rear derailer help a lot for him controlling the bike. I found a matching red ALAN with a 58 cm frame. Very cool team we are now! The ALAN does feel different when compared to steel frames. I would not call it flexy but more....eh... springy. It is at least 20 years old, and there are no signs the frame will fail anytime soon. I love it!

Wait, I installed a British ISO 1.37 x 24 BB in my Batavus Competition. Do I have to take it out and find a Dutch BB?!?!?! Is that what all the guttural sounding cursing is coming from the BB region? I just thought it was the Dutch national anthem.

That's because you forgot to remove the wooden shoes before you installed that BB.

Did you have a slice of "Space Cake" before working on the bike? Seems only right....

This 1973 Paris Sport Model 700 has been my regular ride since I bought it new in high school. Steel frame, brazed lugs, original Stronglight crankset, Lyotard pedals, MM Atom quick releases and Normandy hubs, Weinmann Vainqueur center-pull brakes.

Newer saddle with gel, replaced handlebars after the original set broke (in the middle!) last season (2006), older Huret Jubilee shifters on the downtube controlling Huret Jubilee front derailleur and new Shimano Ultegra rear derailleur. The 27-inch wheels are now clincher rims, although it wore tubulars until 2005.

Here's mine - A Vitus 979.

The drivetrain is Campagnolo Triomphe, with Shimano Exage brakes. It's got Tubular tires on Araya 'Red' rims, and Wellgo pedals. The handlebars are Cinelli.


There's more photos here.

Is that one white or silver? It looks just like the one I sold on ebay a couple of months ago.

1978 Raleigo Pro

I bought this one new in Jul 1978. It was made in Aug 1977, and I still have it. It's mostly original; seat (comfort) chainrings (SR looks nicer) and rear rim are changed (rr crossing mishap). I still have the Brooks Team Pro seat but my rear end can;t take it anymore, at least the new one's an italian seat! Oh yeah and the stupid Campy clamp on head of the silca pump that chewed up my 531 decal is gone as is the Silca pump. I bought a newer frame fitting Silca with the soft tipped Campy bottom end (because the Campy superlight bottom end chewed up my Carlton Race Proved decal as well!!!).

1987 Shogun

Here's my wifes 1987 Shogun. Raleigh no longer made their bikes in England so I got this for her on her first birthday after we got married in 1987. It has a great torquise color and has Tange tubing. Mostly shimano components - no longer *****mano but still too asian for me. She likes it (but she wanted a car!) After neck surgery, I had the maes drop bars replaced with an upright bar for her to allow her to sit a little straighter. Other than the bars, and seat, it's all original.

Not necessarily - that's the "italian style" and I use it as well.

Pinarello Montello, just the frame and a hack fixed build up atm. I bought it to build a fixie of it but didn't have the heart to keep it only "on one" and got myself a real track bike so I could rebuild this semi-period. The frame is near pristine, can't have been ridden much before I got it. I'm guessing 1988ish but I don't know when the chrome ones were built exactly. Any help? Currently have a near full set of campagnolo victory equipment set to go as I cannot afford record for this. Also thinking of lacing my spanking new 28hole campagnolo atlantas for this despite the age gap

One of these is a new ride for me and the other is a re-purposed one:

1) 1994 Trek 730 multitrack: I bought it as a frameset from an iBob listmember and built it up with parts I had around (which is frightening that I had that many parts around). It's USA-made TrueTemper TIG welded steel with a gazillion braze-ons for racks and tons of clearance for fenders. It's built for 700c wheels, and I have 700x32 Panaracer Pasela TGs on there now, which look narrow! Mavic Open Pro wheels with a 7-speed cassette, and just a rear derailleur at the moment while I wait for a longer bottom bracket. I wanted to put a TA double crankset on it, but the bend of the chainstay calls for a very long spindle if I'm to use a road crank. I might just go with an MTB triple of some sort. And this is the first frame I've had on which moustache bars felt good. Those are the Soma version w/ bar-end shifters (though the left-side is a dummy at the moment, and I still need to tape them). Brooks Conquest saddle.

2) My 1971 Raleigh Super Course, repurposed as a 4-speed commuter. I had been running it as a single speed with 700c wheels, but lately my Capo has been my main single speed bike, so I turned the Super Course into a commuter. 27" wheels w/ a Sturmey Archer FW hub, Stronglight mod. 93 crankset with chainguard, SR stem and alloy north-roads bars, Bluemels mudguards, Blackburn rack with wooden platform, eclipse pannier (which my 15" laptop fits into nicely). The Brooks Pro saddle is a bit out of style but it sure is comfortable!

Oh, nice! I like the closeup of the bike--it shows the matching tyres and handlebar tape. The cards in the spokes are a nice touch, too .

I race it (though I'm mostly last place). The new gearing (52/18) should help a lot, 42/16 was just too low.
