Thanks. It's my favorite era of DA. Cinelli bar and stem are on the way. Just need to get a CK hs ordered and I'm ready to go.

I'm kind of surprised you're not going for the HP-7410.

Like I needed another keeper project... 1974 Paramount. Now I have to push out a keeper or two. Good news is earlier this year I sold four "keepers" so technically, I am "OK". Might encourage me to do something with my 1973 track frame. It needs quite a bit of love.

Yeah, it's too bad the NJS one won't fit on your bike.

I got this nice Sugino Super Maxy crankset with a 50.4 BCD. The arms are 165mm and the chainrings are 48-36. It came with a Tange bottom bracket which I may or may not use due to the spindle being very wide at 124mm. I'll have to see what kind of Q-factor that gives me.








I actually bought it just to use as a backup in case I couldn't find a nice Pro Dynamic for the build I'm working on, but it's so nice I think I might just use it instead. I just need to get over the fact that the spider is swaged on.

Speaking of Pro Dynamics, I got outbid on this auction for one with a bafflingly odd chainring setup of 60-44. I didn't even know they made 60t chainrings. It even came with a Zunow adjustable bottom bracket cup. I sure would have liked to see the bike it was pulled from. And the guy's legs who rode it.

Very quick delivery for my new Brooks B67 (Honey) ordered for my 1971 Robin Hood 3 speed. I now have a $170 saddle on a $165 bike.

I wear Zamberlan boots every day in the classroom and these Giros look like a logical move.

Did you a find a better price on the Giros?

I probably paid too much for this, but I've wanted one for a long time and as a short dude, it's hard to find something like this in my size. My winter project, which will probably stretch into spring, summer, fall, etc., etc. It'll be fun though and I can't wait to finally ride one of these.

Yes it is, and no sign of the seatpost unfortunately. This will be a long project so I'll be keeping an eye out for one since they're rare and can be expensive. I'm torn between restoring it to original or upgrading to more modern components as the paint job is horribly ruined and requires redone no matter which way I go, it'll be repainted to original scheme though, so no worries there. I've currently got a bolt and nut contraption rigged up on the rear hub to get it spread out to 130mm as I may go to an STI/Ergo setup for it.

A few things came recently, so I am consolidating updates. All are visible in these photos

- I decided to go big (or bigger, anyway): Grand Bois Cerfs in 700x28. So far so good, but still trying to determine optimum tire pressure (I am approx. 150 lbs, FWIW). They still felt pretty hard pumped up to 90 PSI.
- Elite Ciussi bottle cages. I discovered (rather late) that the little things do matter. Don't skimp on the small stuff as I did earlier.
- Selle Italia Turbo 'Super' saddle.

Looks nice! I weigh about 150 lbs myself, and 90 psi is a bit much for people our weight, especially in front. I would humbly recommend trying 75 psi or so in the front and seeing how that agrees with you. I've personally used 65/80 with my 700x28C tires for several years now, and have yet to experience an issue. Much more comfortable than at max pressure, although some prefer the ride of rock-hard tires.

Thanks! Still learning the ropes and figuring out how much air I can let out with this much more width/volume over 700x23. How are pinch flat protection and squirminess at 75 PSI (or 80, for that matter)? Comfort is great - I guess it's why a lot of people get wider tires, myself included - but the other two are more important to me, in that order. I'm willing to sacrifice some comfort.

Ok, I'm just attachment deficient this week and have screwed up this one post twice already. Third time is the charm?

Picked this up for $10 last week, got it more for novelty than anything, cool elastic pouch to toss in my pack I guess?
