Nothing like the right part, at a price you can't refuse. Thank you Belg-Ital Steel for the awesome shifters! Clean enough to start making me think repaint. This frame is plenty beat, but mostly just appearance. It "had" a seat tube dent when I got it, but a nice tapered end disposable seat post and some green grease, and it all but vanished. On the way... Just need to spend the big bucks next. A set of cranks, and some brakes. I recently received a Christmas gift of a CLEAN 77 NR rear derailleur too. I should add a picture of that, though it came by Nissan Frontier rather than the post.,,,,BD

I am stunned that my LG phone took this picture. As good or better than my digital camera...

Is it "temperature rated" for certain ranges? I know you said quite warm but at what temps?

Would appreciate your comments. Thanks.
Sorry, just noticed your question. Down to about 30F, long sleeve wicking layer + wool jersey underneath is about right for me. The challenge always seems to be extremities.

It definitely seems like an outer layer garment to me.

An older Blackburn rack. Now, what I'm not 100% sure on is...what side of the rear brake bolt the connector gets attached.

Monoplanars for the 85 EM.
Felt the need to be more period correct.


This didn't come today, but recently.
Since the Eddy lacks in the shiny chrome frame/fork dept, I thought it needed drillium flash.

A large box of Italian bicycle jewelry for the Merkcx, and a Brooks saddle suitable for the chic-shabby '79 Trek.

I found someone selling SunTour barcon shifter bolt sets on eBay - actually stainless reproductions of the bolt - complete with both the 'regular' nut and outer finish nut. Now my barcons that are missing that outer finish nut will be complete!!





Bikeville thoughts: For Sale: Suntour Bar-Con bar-end shifter hardware set.

IMHO that's almost a perfect application for stainless. It will resist rust, and high clamping force isn't needed for these pieces. Affordable?,,,,BD


EDIT: Just noticed the price in the paragraph... Not too bad, since I paid 10 bucks more than that for two machined spacers for a Cannondale Super-V.

$25/pr on his regular website. eBay price was $20/pr buy-it-now and free shipping. I don't see any more currently listed.

I finally got my Schwalbe HS-159's I ordered from biketiresdirect for $38 shipped. I made the order on the 28th of December. My first time trying these. The price was right, and they have flat protection. Fingers crossed for a decent ride quality.,,,,BD

Fantastic! Could not believe the events that lead to the breakage. Sick for you.

Waiting for the build up.

How's Frank the welder?
