This is my second 1 liter bottle. Works well but don't leave small components soak for more than an hour as it kinda dissolves them over night. It wipes off rather than washes off. Always found washing off other brands with water somewhat counterintuitive when trying to prevent further rust on old bare steel.

A set of removable MKS Urban pedals. Good for travel and if I ever want to swap out platforms and SPDs.
The half clips are too small and will probably go back to the webshop where I bought them as I ordered a larger size.


More pics, including the removable function, here.

I also received a Mafac rear cable hanger from France.
There is a Raleigh mixte in my shed that I want to build up and a cable hanger would mean I could actually use something like a Mafac racer brake on there.
That, or I just build it up with a drum brake and a freewheel.

Ten bucks for a part I only expected four to cover the postage for, and an apology for running late. I got my cat six cans of her favorites (with gravy!) and had dinner and lots of pop myself and had enough for a can of green beans of all things (which I love). Had two pennies left.

I'd call that money well spent and I thanked them today.

After a couple PM's, some text messages and pics, we worked out a straight trade for the same brand/style red pair that I have (had). They arrived yesterday, and within 10 minutes of receiving the box, they were on the bike. Thanks again Miguel, most appreciated!

From today's ride:


@Malcala is a great guy, sharp, fair and on it. I have had several excellent transactions with Miguel, he is definitely an asset here.

Elite Ciussi, to be exact Plenty to be found on Ebay.
I like the inox (stainless) cages - they work well for a vintage bike aesthetically, and are delightful to use.

Rustines repop of Universal brake lever hoods

i believe Mod 61, but maybe others.

This was the best solution to feeling good about riding a very nice old (70s) Italian.
