Post #25 , early shot with 27" wheels and original drivetrain.
Now repurposed as the graveler; therefore, 46/30 rings and 33mm knobbies.

Will have to edit with a newer pic.

No pictures because my bikes only occasionally get a name starting with "F"; usually during maintenance issues.

Looks like I missed the Fuji thread.

Last week I repacked the headset bearings on my 1979 America. As far as I know, the balls and grease that were in there were original. 40 years is a reasonable preventative maintenance cycle for an unsealed bearing that gets used in the rain, right? The races seemed to still be in good shape.



I've also got a Feather. Being a 2016 model, it's hardly "vintage", but I'll post it here anyway. The handlebars are old Nitto B115s, at least!
