Making my ride rideable again:

A Dutch saddle for a Dutch bike!



Stiffer than a Brooks but I can shoot some side by side shots with a Brooks B17 imperial if people are interested.

A NItto NTC-150 stem and a Park valve core tool. Now I can finally finish up the Cannondale ST600 build.

UPDATE: Stem, handlebars, and brake levers are positioned and installed. Need a ride or two before wrapping the bars.

My Kingdom for a Shim! I forgot the golden rule of measure twice and order once and got it wrong the first time 'round. The correct Shim arrived today and now I can (hopefully) finish my parts bin build

Parts are starting to arrive for the 87 Nishiki Cresta GT rebuild, I was going to go stock/parts bin as much as possible but that didn't last long, who was I fooling? Wider Nitto Noodle bars, MKS RMX platform pedals, Tektro brake levers with nice beefy hoods, the Technomic stem is enroute.

My Bike! It arrived yesterday at work.

My AZ bike ('86 Miyata 710) made its way here to Ohio from the Phoenix area via a shop in Mesa that was new to BikeFlights. The big bike box they used (from a beach cruiser) had holes in it where my axles had poked through. They used bubble wrap and masking tape to wrap the bike. Personally, I would have used pipe insulation or pool noodles and zip-ties... They did not remove the fork ( I would have), or use a block between the fork blades or rear dropouts, so I got lucky there that nothing got bent. The handlebars were taped to the toptube, but the stem wasn't wrapped and rattled on the downtube were it removed some paint. At least they didn't cut any of my cables!

Anyway, I unpacked it and got it all assembled and fit-adjusted on my lunch break, and actually rode it down the street and around the parking lot. I will be bring it home some time this next week...

I love how this bike glides effortlessly! It is so nimble and responsive that it makes my old Fuji seem like driving a truck!

The Simplex Retrofriction Gods will be after me soon as I finally committed this act of blasphème, against them!.......Do I hear sirens??!

NOS from one of my favorite C&V sellers in Belgium. Like always, it came much (Over a week earlier) earlier than the estimated arrival time.
Love the Belgian Post!! Fast, like the 1962 GTO behind the shifters which was a Class winner at LeMans, driven by the team from Belgium.

Just an observation, but being new to BikeFlights should be no excuse for a bad packing job. Shipping (and receiving) bikes is one of their jobs. Choice of carrier should not affect how well they pack them. I'd say something to them.

I did. I sent them an email describing how the axles had poked through, and that the handlebar stem caused scratches. I told them that they needed to address that for future shipments. I gave several links to YouTube videos about 'how to pack a bike' - all using pool noodles or pipe insulation, how to make dropout spacers fro PVC pipe, etc.. They thanked me for the links, and said that they'd do better in the future.

My bluetooth headphones started to fail so I bought another cheap pair. They're good for listening but not so great for talking.
