1978 or 77? Sekai 2500 Grand Tour, and in relevance to this thread I've been kicking around the idea of converting it into a 1x5.. since you will note the derailer hanger and all the cable guides are still intact

1940-ish Fothergill with a '39 AW hub and a Resilion derailleur. The best part by far is the handlebar by Frank the Welder! But other forum members contributed in important ways as well. Front hub a gift from Auchencrow. Fenders from RobE30. Saddle recovered by myself, leather handlebar grips, leather saddle bag and pedal straps (made from old tires) all my own work.


1954 Alvin Drysdale Sports Tourist, Simplex Tour-de-France derailleur shifting over five speed freewheel. This bike originally came with a three speed freewheel, discarded (along with all other original components) in the 70's. But this is more or less how it looked originally. Again, many forum members contributed, mostly without financial renumeration. Elguicho gave me the handlebar; Bikemore gave me the brake levers; NLerner gave me the freewheel; Photogravity gave me the chain ring; ColJLloyd gave me the seat post. Rear derailleur from JJHabbs. I could go on....

Those are both beautiful! Excellent work to all involved, but especially you for getting them together

How do you like using those retroshifts?

I think they work very well. It's a slightly different movement (and different placement, obviously) than the downshift lever on right ergos, but in a way it feels even more resposive -- clicks are close together, whereas on my ergos I always feel like I have to push too far to click into the next gear. They work great with my 7-sp system even though they're designed for 9 or 10 speeds. I also like being able to just feel with my hand and know which gear I'm in by the lever angle. My hands are small so when I'm in the middle of the cassette and the shifter is sort of parallel to the brake lever it can feel weird to have your hand in that gap, though there's definitely room. Just something to get used to. Not that I throw the chain all over the cluster very frequently, but it's nice knowing I can shift as many gears as I want in one smooth motion, and I know exactly where to stop because of the visual feedback from the lever.

Hm, I got some campy bar ends, 10 speed, so chances are slim I'll be using these retroshifts. Don't care too much about the way they look though, but function is still more important then form. Glad you like 'm and the build looks very nice. Enjoy!

Oh man! I saw the Fothergill and thought to myself, "Wow! What a great looking bike!" Then I scrolled down to the Drysdale. Dang... I don't know which I like better!

Nishiki Road Compe. 1x6, 48 x 14-30. Those are the first wheels I ever built.

I no longer have this bike. This was after I took off the honey brooks and rear rack that matched so well before I sold this. I miss the bike... great beater!



The retroshift was cool. I, along with coloneljlloyd and fender1, were fortunate to test out the retroshift stuff. Not my cup of tea as the cost of setting one up pretty much put you in used brifter territory, but they worked fine for most applications. I wrote a little review of it somewhere...

My Jeunet runs 1x7 thanks to a donor Centurian's wheels, shifter and derailleur:


The wife's Raleigh goes 1x7 as well, via the parts from about four other bikes:


As did her old Raleigh, now owned by another friend of mine:

I just got another. You'll have to trust me that it is a single ring.

Yes, there's a thread on this bike. It's current, but it is Reynolds 520 so "steel is real". The more I look at this, the more I like it. Pennies are being saved - unless I bite the other bullet and put an SA 3-speed on my single speed.

Love seeing the classic bikes still being used out there. I just got my hands on a late 70's model Kurpfalz (German road bike). 5 speed, but probably will upgrade to a 7. This bike is in excellent condition, still has the 27" steel rims too! Someone really took care of it. Can't wait to finish the build and post some pics.
