The (almost) final parts for the Gazelle mixte. I realized I forgot shifter cable...

Not pictured are a rear wheel and rim + chain ring + bashguard.

Thanks SOL for the fast shipping and great packing.

A book loaned to a friend several years ago. Highly enjoyable read and signed by the author when he came to Cycles De Oro for a talk.

I have been coveting this for a while and since May had some extra days which meant some extra pay I pulled the trigger on the item in my Amazon wish list bucket a 1953 Heritage replica team Italia wool jersey from DeMarchi.

Scored a limited edition red Carradice Bingley from Carradice's factory second eBay store!

Since I mostly needed a bag to hold a chain lock and I also ordered a Tourbon saddle bag, which is slightly bigger, I'll save it for another bike.

I twice got packages mis-sent to me this weekend. The two guys I bought from sent my stuff elsewhere and I got more expensive items.

No, I didn't keep them...weird that I have never had that happen and it happens twice.

I have those bars on an old Trek, they are wonderful. Where did you purchase all the Nitto stuff?

Both Nitto items came off Ebay for a small discount over retail. I like to go stock when I can but I need wider bars and a higher stem than most vintage bikes offer.

I had the same problem. Works awesome on my bike, very comfortable. I need things high and a little bit closer than most.
