Bing saddle

Odd saddle: Bing, might be for a juvenile due to smaller size. Anyone with knowledge regarding this saddle? The seller had no info to impart.

Nice score on the HS, assume $$$ was good.

They can be a spendy pita if you want a nice one.

Kind of a pita anyway, but so cool.

Price for the headset was ok. Ive seen worse ones on ebay for double what I paid.

Im happy with the cane creeks. I wasnt comfortable with the ashy Shimano.

Sometimes ok is the best you can hope for.

I like the cc's well enough, someday going to try and figure out how to get rid of the branding, wish they made a plain version, I'd put em on a lot of bike's if they did, the Campy's would get them to save the real ones.

Not really C & V, but my Garmin Vivosmart HR battery quit charging about the time the band broke. Found new bands on Ebay for <$5, but the battery is "non-replaceable by user". 😡 Garmin wanted $89 to repair a unit that I got 3 years ago for $75. Amazon sells refurbs for $59 incl free Prime shipping, no brainer. My old repaired unit would have been an $89 refurb + shipping, etc. The new refurb arrived today, got it bluetoothed, synced, good to go on my next vintage ride.

New unit in the box, old one in front goes in the e-waste recycle bin, I guess.

I have one these garmins and they're pretty cool. Simple design with multple features for a good price. They take a beating and last.

I love mine, but the other one took a beating and "lost". Hope this one lasts longer.

I ordered a $4 key ring from banggood, and five weeks later, this pair of "tools" arrived instead. I have no idea what they are. I knowingly take a risk when I order directly from Asia. I might ask them to make good on the deal, or I might just shrug it off.

These came today, courtesy of @jonwvara. All the way from America! Which, for people of my generation, still feels like a small miracle.

37T 122 BCD means I finally get to take some of my favorite cranksets out of the Dutch polders. First stop: L'Eroica in Gaiole!

Shoes from Italy

These shoes were on my front porch when I got home today.

They. Are. Orange.

But neither classic nor vintage, so apologies for that. They feel like slippers, hope they're just as comfortable on the bike.

Oh, this will get built (but I do have a couple/three "untouchable" kits, you betcha!). In fact, it was purchased with the express intent to build and show at a PNW show in March.

Nothing exciting or photo-worthy, just a set of chains from @deux jambes , via a C&V Sales thread. Remarkable that it made it, however. Package went into limbo per Uncle Sam, it just kept saying it was "moving through the USPS network" (still says that now). Wife calls me at work yesterday, there's a plastic bag in the mailbox with a sopping wet USPS box. She can just make out our address, and the "from" city. Yeah, that's the chains. I get home, put on a pair of nitrile gloves, dig into it, and the box smells of some vague watered-down chemical. Fortunately, he wrapped the chains in TIGHT plastic, INSIDE the box, so they were totally unscathed. But whiskey tango, did they drag the box across the Mississippi River on the way here? 'Course, no way for the carrier to scan to indicate delivery, so it's still hanging out there.

Tonight one of the chains is going on a '90-ish Schwinn Impact Pro MOS I bought, well-used and weary, from the original owner; been gradually waking it back up, and this will complete the process.

I still can’t get over this story!

I am very happy they made it to you though. And glad a catfish didn’t slither out of the package upon opening it!

I wonder if anyone else is experiencing hiccups wit USPS.

Two recent incoming packages were finally delivered after problems. And one more is late with no tracking updates in the last 24 hrs. Wouldn’t bother me so much if it wasn’t the very last item needed for a bike build in progress.

Anyhow, these gum hoods which must have been kept in a time capsule were delivered from Belgium today, so I can’t complain too much...

UPS, not USPS. A tool to take out a dent in the seat tube of my ca 1965 Sauvage Lejeune. May do a show and tell.

And here it is! After 7 months of collecting parts for a very specific bike build, I can finally say that as long as the bottom bracket spindle gives a proper chainline then this decaluer is the very last component needed.





I wouldn’t mind fresh decals for the rims, and crank arms, but I’ll consider those “wants” as opposed to “needs.” And those can come much later. No problem. So I think I can safely tear the shopping list up now. Let the good times roll... !
