Always good to read of a project moving forward. Those Campy bits look like they will shine with a little TLC

Couple of items but first, some nice beer coasters from Bike Dog brewing co in Sacramento, Ca.

Thanks to @Renngrrl I can keep the wood tables ringless!

I'll have to practice my bombing aim...

Someone posted a tip for stabilizing the front wheel while the bike is parked or on the workstand. So I bought these ball bungies. They turn out to be too short for the job.

These images are clickable for purchasing



I also got a Castelli cap. I find Castelli caps fit more comfortably than Walz caps.

Great stuff from Brewsmith.

A nice Campy aero post and a sweet Mighty Competition crankset.

Came with dust covers and good, clean BB.

Got a second hand Sturmey Archer XL-RD5(W) 5-speed hub in the mail today. I already had an RX-RD5 but this one has the sexy larger drum brake. I had it waiting to put it in a new wheel for a project bike but then this came along for cheap.



That 90mm drum is HUGE though. O_O

A boxed, NOS Cyclone II front mech.



It's what my Super Galaxy should have instead of the bodged MTB mech it came with or the Compe-V it has at the moment. I just need to find a Stronglight 99 BIS chainset and it will be looking the way it should.

A pair of Panaracer Pasela Pro Tite 700X35c folding tires to replace these old Specialized Nimbus III 700X38c wire beads. The Specialized tires have genuine gumwalls, but they've gotten crispy and chunks have fallen off leaving bare cords. I bought them for $5 at a swap, so that's okay. I went down a size because I know that Paselas are true to size and the 38's were a close fit. The problem is that the 35's are significantly larger than the 38's. I hope that I can make them work by trimming some screw ends and trimming the rear fender at the chain stays. I should have bought 32's.

I'm making more changes, including a white head tube, white down tube decals, paint on the stays all the way to the dropouts, a silver chain, a "boy on a bike" on the seat tube and Portuguese cork ring grips. I've got that front fender fitting better, too.

I post pictures when I get it all done in case anyone is interested.

A junior Carradice bag. I ordered a bagman support too... but then it became out of stock.

So I wait. But I got the bag!

A set of win pista drop bars came from the Bay for 35 bucks. Attached to the bars are some nice dia-comp slot drilled levers, with supple and clean gum hoods still attached. They also came with a black steering stem.

Oh! And the brakes are hanging off the cables too!

I needed some drops and levers to fit on my Marin Bear Mountain SE!

The old school suntour friction Barcons came in too.

Many projects!

It is going on my Gazelle Grand Tourist project bike.
I've been experimenting with a hybrid concept but this 5-speed should give me all the range I need for 'lowland'-touring. And since I am a big fan of hub gears and drum brakes this beasty version tickled me.


I was lucky. Someone on the local craigslist sold it for €25.

I might throw the 70mm version on my girlfriend's bike since she only uses 3 gears anyway or I'll sell it again.

The Grand Tourist is originally your run of the mill 3-speed roadster with a slightly more sporty geometry. I am halfway through converting it to a Porteur. Just need a new handlebar and stem to move it a bit more forward. I tried to setup a dropbar with cross levers but it just didn't work for me.

One other thing on the wishlist is a better rear rack, leading the wire through the frame and the matching Drum brake Dynohub. But I am on a budget since my girlfriend and I just moved in together.

Very nice, @JaccoW. I like dynamo hubs, too, but that can definitely wait. Maybe you'll get lucky with one of those, too. Set up a google alert to watch for one.

Just ordered a VO pass hunter rack with integrated decaleur. Is that handlebar bag fairly water proof? Looking to transport my camera equipment.

Are you asking about the Carradice? It's a saddle bag but very waterproof. I found out today... the weatherman lied!

Today was new tire day, a pair of Veloflex Vlaanderen, four Vittoria Rallies, and a pair of Grand Bois Cerf green. The tubulars came from England. US Customs apparently slashed the box open with a knife. The letter carrier said that's the way they received it. Fortunately, they didn't cut any of the tires, and none of them fell out.

Thanks!

Truth is, I am still walking it around ( in my mind) to each bike that could get it and see how the corresponding parts shift would work out.

Not as easy as it sounds, at least for me.

Oh I get it, trust me I know exactly what you mean. I have about a half a dozen of them and they may just end up where you would expect a big "C" to be. Imho you can not go wrong with these, ever.

Also, plz keep me in mind if you ever decide to move it along.
