Avid Shorty 4's!!! Only 10 days after I ordered them from Nashbar. I will never use "Sure Post" ever again! Of course they don't say it will take ten days to get your stuff on Nashbar. I will never use their cheapest shipping, if I ever order from Nashbar again(It's been at least 5 years since my last order). I should have had these in 4 days maximum. TEN, is ridiculous.,,,,BD

The main thing I am trying to figure out, is why Avid includes 3 straddle cables with each set? I needed one straddle per set (2), and I have six?

I think I am going to be slick, and drill the stem for a cable stop. Should be fairly easy, small hole for the cable and a pilot, then shoot a little larger bit down a little ways for the housing. I will have to stay on top of the adjustment though, since there will be no inline adjuster unless I install one.

Taping the hole with the correct threading would give you that option. I've seen those on early GB stems.

That would be cool !

Bought an old Lygie frame, the headbadge was pretty much shot. A saved search on eBay finally paid off. This came from the country of my father's ancestors, Italy.

Got some spokes today and built up some wheels with Wolber Super Champion Aubisque rims and a mix of C-Record and newer Record hubs.

A Thomson Elite seatpost and a Selle Italia "Diva" saddle - both for a non vintage bike.



Have no idea why the photos are in the wrong orientation. Sorry.

Could be you are taking them with a "smart" phone (iPhone or whatever) and holding it in the opposite hand. Your phone display knows how to flip the image as you view or take it. The orientation is then embedded in the image which some display software will recognize and some will not. Ain't "smart" things goofy?

Well the first time I added the photo it was correct. I added a second photo that was upside down, when uploaded to site both were that way. I always use my iPhone for bike photos without issues . Oh well....that's what I bought anyway.

Two sets of Koolstop pads for Suntour Superbe brakes. I ended up having to order them direct, for whatever the reason.

They haven't been out that long. Perhaps no distributors have picked them up yet. When they were first available, I mentioned their availability to a couple online vendors who already sell KS pads for other vintage brakes.

I would appreciate a photo lesson in how you open and close the holders to get the new pads in.

I got some SunTour Superbe shifters for a bike build I'm planning. Thus begins the long, slow process of gathering all the parts I need.
I also found some books at the thrift store down the street.

Wooah! But it does have the classic team Ritchey paint. And no wonder these new bikes are crazy light, dig those invisible pedals!
