That seller in Plymouth seems okay, and he overhauls the bikes from what I can tell. He has some nice bikes come through fairly often if not exactly from the goldmine.

They aren't real old but the Scwinn Criss-Crosses are nice, winter bikes especially should one have to go through some awful weather.

It's got the special derailleur in from of the cog cluster for that one year, I wish that was done more.

They certainly shift well and then, the butterfly bars too, even if the stock bf bars are a bit heavy.

So, the lug on the headtube has those holes in it, it looks like for a lamp I gather.

WOW.

What a beautiful bike. It looks smaller than a size 56 though.

Nice bike but I thought radial lacing a high flange Nuovo record hub was a no no.

Over-priced, but could be nice with a bunch of elbow grease.

Centurion Road Bike


Centurion Road Bike - $500 (Allston)










condition: good
make / manufacturer: Centurion
model name / number: Elite RS
size / dimensions: 58cm - 23"
Superb road bike. I've put lots of love into this ride but am finally ready to part with it for something new. Its an 80's era Centurion with mostly campagnolo components. It's got drop handlebars with integrated levers. The chain is a little rusty in the photos but I plan to replace it before making a sale. I'm a mechanic so feel free to ask any condition questions (I'm not bashful)
do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers

Lateral strength is mainly in the rim, so it doesn't matter how the wheel is laced.

Radial strength in torque is in lacing and goes roughly as the square of the crossings, so a 4x pattern is 16x stronger than a radially laced wheel. If you choose to lace a rear hub in radial, particularly a vintage hub and rim, expect disaster.

On the front, it doesn't matter so much because it never sees the level of torque as the rear.

All that said, it looks cool, but I'd never do it on the front, either. If I bought that, I'd check it out, and if it was suspicious, I'd relace it.

I don't think the concern is how strong the wheel is:

Norco Monterey SL - $145

70's vintage Norco road bike--all original, excellent



For sale a classic 12 speed road bike from Canadian company Norco. Monterey SL model 56 cm frame with nice lug work and paint, and "NORCO" engraving in seat stays.

Sugino GT cranks, new Shimano sealed bottom bracket, Suntour Superbe group including indexing "power shifters". ARAYA alloy 27" rims are true, with new Panaracer tires. Side pull brakes have fine-adjustment feature.

This rare classic was purchased in Quebec, Canada, and still has original bar tape (I'll include new rolls), and a great NORCO handlebar bag.

Clean, lubed and adjusted, everything works perfectly.

$145

Thanks for looking. Jon

That's a rear pista, and a different hub than the Record high flange set in the original post. Everything I wrote stands. If you want to put too much torque on any hub that's been treated poorly, you get the same thing. Radial on the rear is very bad. Radial lacing on the front shouldn't matter too much.

Scratching my head. This guy has two different ads up for the same frame, showing two different builds that are not for sale. It has the C&V look but was apparently a 2010 retro model. The frame looks like a nice one, but it's been well-loved. $150 or $152. Ad does not state what might be included. Headset? Crankset?
Fuji Connoisseur Frameset
Fuji Connoisseur (frameset only)

The original bike is an odd one. Reynolds 725 triangle according to Bikepedia, Lugged vertical dropouts like a nice modern steel frame, but it has shifter bosses that look too far up, where cable stops would go. Straight fork legs with a lugged crown. Tig for the rest. And a 1" stem in 2010. Apparently they were blown out via Bikes Direct a few years later.

Looks similar to an older SR XCE crank. I don't know what year that bike is, but, the 1990 Trek catalog shows the 330 with a similar crank, SR Pac-530.

Wow. Look at that frame geometry! Reminds me of my Raleigh DL1... I know of the Stelvio Pass in Italy, they chose that as the world's best driving road on Top Gear years ago. This bike looks like it is designed for fast descents. Anybody here know if that's true?
