Things You Won't Read in the C&V Forum

"I loosened the clamp bolt and took the seatpost out."

"Gumwalls donít look very good on that bike."

"Why donít you put a carbon fork on it?"

"How much do those cranks weigh?"

"Thatís a reasonable price for that item."

"That crack looks fine."

"Iím not worried who made it."

"Those Biopace chainrings look great."

"We donít need to see pictures of it."


"That fork looks straight."

"You should remove the original paint."

"You can get that part from any bike shop."

"That rust looks fine."

Your turn.
