WTF?!

For the record, I was joking when I suggested Huffy sourced their frame-building materials from HD. But now that I see this ^^^^^, all bets are off!

Just ordered some

Sadly, not from Home Depot. I absolutely would have (just because), but their Super Domestique tires were not a 'super domestic' price. Found them for almost half. Fortunately, after I ordered them I read up and found that they were at least a decent tire lol

At the very least, I'm grateful for the misunderstanding on the meaning of the tire name, because I'm starting to get inspired for a tubing sticker for the bike.

'Super domestic guaranteed special mild gaspipe'

You could always make up a sticker that says "Tubing proudly produced by", followed by a logo like this:




After all: the type of tubing used in that frame is commonly referred to as "gas pipe" - right?

I like your idea. I work in the trades and work with gas pipe on a regular basis. Who'da thunk I'd be around it for leisure as well!

This thread is awesome. Those rear drops saved at least 80 grams each. Thin to win.

PS the Colnago kickstand would a decent replacement...

My hands would agree with you. If I had heated gloves or those weird mountable handlebar mittens, I'd be out there all day. It was about -5 out early this morning, and sitting around 13-15 degrees right now.

This weekend is supposed to be nice, so we are going to rack up those miles.

Alright y'all, I'm probably going to be looking for some new rings for the Campy crankset (is it a 'Record' crank? 'Super Record' crank? Did they even make a 'Super Record' crank?).

In any case, the rings probably aren't horrible but I've got plans. I need new or like new rings. Of course, only the best for the Huffy.

HOWEVER, I'm a little more open to alternative suggestions for wear parts. I don't mind something non-Campy if it looks beautiful and is new. NOS Campy is worth body parts Unless you don't think I should be, and then I will be snobby and elite with my rings

Any good suggestions?

Here is what mine currently look like -

There's a part of this I really like. There's a part of this that scares me.



My 1986 Trek 400 Elance was like the 2nd lowest bike on the Trek hierarchy- one step above "entry level." But I think it's my most beautiful bike. It's decked out with all kinds of top/upper shelf kind of stuff. XC Pro, XC Comp, Superbe, Ofmega, Maillard 700... I got a perverse kick out of seeing a Superbe Pro with the 400 on the chain stay and sporting a Suntour dork disk.

Here is what mine currently look like -

At least some of the Sugino Super Mighty Competition chainrings were drillum. They look SO cool (I want some for my 1 gen Suntour Superbe). https://www.ebay.com/itm/25599002071...YAAOSwCjpjzCed I´m not sure whether they can be found in the required condition, or if they´re unobtanium. But if possible, they´d look cool.
