The large box contained a Cinelli 66-42 Campione Del Mondo handlebar for testing/fitting.
Very nice! I got some friction shifters installed today. Got some cable stuff in the mail today and ran the gearing up. Working good!

Fairweather Seat Bag and MKS Lambda pedals from Blue Lug, Tokyo. Happy to report that the pedals offer great support for large feet. When riding in boots, I had the unique sensation of riding on the balls of my feet but being supported closer to my arches - it feels great for city riding.

A new set of wheels for my ST600 build. Sun CR18 700c rims, 100/126mm OLD, freewheel threading. I need rim tape before I can put tubes and tires on, but I should have some here. Just have to find it. Compass Extra Light Bon Jon Pass tires are supposed to be here tomorrow. Should result in rolling goodness. Once the wheels are sorted, it's just the RD and trim adjustments - then the maiden voyage.

When the stem height/length are confirmed, then wrap the handlebars and call it a bicycle. A 29 year old Cannondale ST600, to be specific. @gugie is going to handle the front rack for me, but I have to send him the fork. I won't want to take it apart, but I'm certain it will be worth it.

Nice NOS Ideale 39 saddle from @crandress:



Even got it out for quick 2-mile ride to the hardware store before the rain started. This is one stiff saddle.

Paid some eBay learning money today:


Stronglight 49D 50x40x30 with a 175mm crank and a 170mm arm.
Forgot to read the description properly...


Specialistes TA Pro 5 vis 48x38x32 in 170mm


Pristine looking Specialistes TA Pro 5 vis 52x42x38 in 170mm. This one is going my Batavus Randonneur GL once I replace the smalles chainring.

All of these together was €130 + shipping but next time I should keep an eye on my other bids to prevent myself from bidding on too much items at once.

I've been hoping to come across a good deal on one of these for years. The box says 40" and containing a hi definition tv, but why would I post that here?








I ride a 21 - 1/2" frame. It's a 20 - 1/2". That's my wife's size.

Very nice, except for the obligatory bent in shipping dropout screws with possible thread damage. This drives me nuts, originals can be tough to come by, nevermind the cost and hassle that can be avoided by simply screwing them all the way in and properly protecting them as should always be done.
