Well, my new workhorse has arrived! It was dropped off at my parents' place out in the countryside yesterday evening so today after work I went over to assemble it... A 1999 Schwinn Peloton in rather great condition, all things considered. There are a few blemishes to the paint on top of the top tube, as if it were tucked under some kind of piece of furniture or the like, and the left-hand STI lever has some scuffs. Otherwise it's pretty darn clean! I had the L'Eroica water bottles and alloy cages laying around so I threw those on to see what it looked like more "road-worthy."

The only pedals I had at the house were from a 1950 Raleigh Popular roadster, so I threw those on after realizing they were around, and took it for a spin down the road. It shifts through the rear smoothly and the brakes work well, so I think very little dialing in will be necessary besides tinkering with the front derailleur tension, as it doesn't want to throw quite far enough to get onto the big ring on its own.

The stiffness of the aluminum fork was immediately apparent, but my priority is replacing the cockpit, post and saddle with bits to my liking before I begin considering a new fork... It'll do for now!

You're too kind!

I really like these wheels. Not the lightest at around 1800g for the pair but absolutely rock solid.

I don't think that this bike can get any more refined, about the only thing that I wish I could get around is that damn 21.1mm steer tube

I'm always looking for a fork to drop in as a replacement, but a quality fully chromed fork with tall steer tube and 380mm + axle to crown is really tough to find without spending a huge (to me) amount of money. But if anyone happens to have one...

I'm usually not a fan of converting quill stems on vintage bikes but yours doesn't look bad.

Thanks, I think.
It's not an InniCycle, but the price of admission is a bit lower.

Looks way better

One question though, is that steel or aluminum?

If aluminum, I'd recommend periodically raising up and inspecting that transition from the large to the small diameter for cracks. It looks like the transition is radiused but there's still going to be some concentration of stress there - much more than if that transition was a lot less drastic like with your old adapter.

Thanks for the safety tip, abshipp.

I had thought of that...ie square-shouldered/non-radiused being a stress point.

I combed the net for a while seeking this config, and noted the majority had a radius at that junction.

I wondered from a metals viewpoint if it was a weaker choice of configuration.
The main tube is aluminum...bolt and wedge are steel

This one is on hiatus due to a bent rim.. The one on the bottom is waiting to get paint..

So I transfered a couple parts to this one to get it ergo'd! It was complete Mavic, but now Mavic/Campagnolo. Its Mavic 571 Campagnolo 8spd. NOS Mavic Mach2CD2 Tubulars, updated the brake calipers to the Campagnolo equivalent Mavic calipers during its time. Gotta keep riding!

Lets go!

The thing is, it will be comparably more prone to fatigue failure than an adapter with a larger radius transition, but there is still a radius there. If it was a sharp corner I wouldn't consider using it at all. The question is whether normal stresses from cycling would be enough to cause a problem.

Generally I'm of the opinion that bike parts are way stronger than people think they are. Of course things break occasionally, and the stem/fork interface has really terrible consequences if it fails so it warrants extra caution. It's probably fine, but definitely don't put off researching any strange new noises from the front end
