This didn't come today, but I haven't done anything with it yet. The plan is a wider range for the Alpine.

I rarely get anything bicycle related in the post but the last couple of weeks produced some things I did and didn't need...

I have more suspended leather saddles than I need but I just could not pass up this Brooks, a NOS piece that will, most likely, find a home on my Rabeneick...


The day after I bought the saddle (emptying my PayPal account) a Stronglight Competition showed up at a very low buy it now price. So, I bought it for the Rabeneick, The crank set is cottered and period correct for the late fifties bike...


And best of all, one of our forum members satisfied a great need for my Legnano, the one that has a sloppy chain and doesn't shift worth one single pooey-stinko. Anyway, great thanks to KenNC for the perfect stoppers for my Gran Premio...

Wahoo! Got me a Raleigh wheel cover from a very generous BF member. Cleaning time then on my SC it goes. Love the extra bits that were included with the cover.

70s Campy seatpost for the Paramount. The last piece of the puzzle, three years later. Pretty freakin' stoked.

Forum people have been very kind to me lately, giving me things that I really need for my Rabeneick. Today, this set of Universal levers, well one really, and would not even accept payment for the cost to ship. I owe him and a couple of others for their kindness. Anyway, these levers showed up and I only need one, which is good because one of the levers is badly damaged...

And that's why the C&V for sale forum is either wonderful or very dangerous or both, depending on how hard you're trying not to buy more bikes. Many thanks to @shnibop for passing this on to me with great care.

I got tired of using thin headset wrenches or heavy crescents that seem to slip so I ordered this...less than the cost of a Park tool and much less than a Campy.
It is long enough to loosen the tightest nut and I can also put it into service on my car.
Notice the size of the box Amazon shipped it in.
Best, Ben

Nitto Adjustable Stem

Hi peeps,

I didn't get this in the mail but more of a purchase in Japan last month. I picked up a NOS Nitto NJ Slider Stem at a small bike shop I came across.
Can some shed some info on this part?

These are historically a track stem, look up Major Taylor as he seemed to bring them to prominence although they were around before him I think.
They fetch hefty sums no matter what, my 58 Paramount came with a Schwinn version in great shape that is pretty cool.
