John, I’ve wanted to see your collection for some time. My wife and I travel to NWI/Chicago area once a year, usually right after Christmas. Our host family always ask, “What would ya’ll like to do today?” I wonder how they would respond to, “Let’s go see a vintage bike collection…oh, and it’s about an hour away.” 👍

The crankset and stem upgrades are over the top on a already great ride. Would love to see the some of these classics in action.

You swapped out a crank, a handlebar and stem and rewrapped the bars. I can do all that, too, but it takes me a lot longer, my hands inevitably get much dirtier, I invariably drop or misplace something and/or something doesn't go according to plan which leads me to give my facility with Anglo-Saxon cussology a workout, and I have to set up and tear down in the back yard every time because we don't have a garage. (We have a basement where my bikes get stored, but I can't stand up in it.) Other than that, just like it would have gone at my house.

Oh, and except my tools are orders of magnitude more disorganized and my bikes are nowhere near as pristine.

Fun videos. I enjoy them a lot.

I find it easier to use a socket driver with a 5/16 bit on those cable anchor bolts. They're easier to manage, and you will never add too much torque that might strip them.

Surprised you routed the rear brake cable on the drive side of the stem. Also think you can trim those cables quite a bit after you ride the bike and dial in the stem height.

The music you added at the end would have been nice during the whole thing.

Yes, This one bicycle will see only about 40 miles this year. Each one gets a little love and my daily rider (moots Routt45) gets most of the action.

I get grief over my cable routing all the time. I'm ok with it. Im learning now how to put music in, how to edit and how not to sound like a gameshow host! Thanks for your patients! lol

Video was pretty good I thought, can tell you put thought into different camera angles and saved us time by speeding through more repetitive stuff.

I'd like more content about vintage bikes, so keep going!

Thanks. I edited out over 12 minutes of me tightening, Wrapping and wiping. LOL. Trying to make me less boring.

Thanks

One risk of making this sort of video is triggering people's personal preferences about the details.. such as whether to grease the crank axle tapers, whether the brake cables go in front of or behind the bars, whether to wrap the tape bottom up or top down, etc.
That's why I kept my opinion about the brake cable routing to myself.

I noticed the improved "cinematography" too! Nice work! Putting together an entertaining video on a semi-boring topic is a real art.

Thanks, Im more looking for comfort TV. Some find it more interesting than others. Not much interested in "how to" videos. So looking for Ideas. I only have so many bicycles to highlight before they become reruns.. lol

I've been to the new bike cave, and it's even more impressive in person. John has done a fantastic job with putting it all together in a way that makes it interesting to even people who never gave bikes a second thought. Irongate is full of cars, plus John's bike condo, but judging by how many people were looking at his bikes this past Saturday, I think he may be responsible for an increase in collecting old bikes. Good job John!
