Newest addition to the ďFix the bent bicycle tool box...Ē...
Iím not afraid to buy tools missing parts...this came along at an acceptable price without the shaft...I can replicate it easy enough...seller still looking for it...anyone have one of these hanging around collecting dust...
PM me please...


Iíve got some worthy candidates for this...the tool was discontinued because of liability worries...I definitely think this is better than the tool that pushes against the fork to straighten the steering tube...Iíve been offered a number of those...barbaric!

After 3 months of start/stops, I finally have a matching ZAC19 rim for my 650b rear wheel build. I'd tried to order last year and had it sell out in my cart. Then with the new year, I decided to give a lbs a chance for business. Nope, I went to a shop and our co-op and both refused to order it from JnB, since it wasn't in stock at the nearest warehouse. Then I saw them pop up on the big A, ordered one and ended up recieving a 700 rim instead.

Finally, a Weinmann ZAC19 650b 36h rim.

Modolo Equipe levers from Paul J. I have no immediate use for them, but I think they are handsome, so I snagged them. Thanks, Paul.

BTW, the same shipment (sale at Planet X ) also brought me another nice Ostrich bag. This time an army green canvas F-104.

Looking forward to that.

WRT Covid things are not looking good here ATM. Our lock-down and evening curfew have just been extended, for fear of the more infectious British variant. I'm hoping for less severe restrictions come summer, but I'm not betting on it ...

I love a surprize even when it has been expected!

A strangely shaped box from Modena, IT. Halfway between Bologna & Parma.

the surprize may have been the early-ish arrival

This arrived not too long ago. I bought a Raleigh Professional in Michigan (Iím in Cincinnati) and my dad agreed to go pick it up. After I bought it, the guy mentioned there was a second set of wheels exactly like what was on the bike. Then he forgot to bring them with him when they met. He agreed to send them my way although I didnít know if it was really worth it. So a week later these show up sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard held together by an entire roll of packing tape.

Got distracted

Gave up on the short tt Frejus as a drop bar bike. But not one to give up easily on a frame I kinda funky-like.
walaah, condorino conversion attempt. Maybe more in another thread.


Missing the bolt

Fits nicely in headset, always appreciate to not have rust where I least want.

Maybe even the grips are salvageable. Will have to search restoration techniques. 16 inches, 40.5cm tip to tip. Needs a rust bath, but nothing looks too bad.

Columbus decals for Basso. I'm pretty the "purple" decal is correct for this frame. (Looks more navy blue to me but some sites say it's purple)

3speedslow Cinelli tape was $15 on Amazon, plastic purple bar plugs were $4.36 from Merlin Cycles. Shipping from Merlin was $18, but I picked up a stock of caps on sale and some other odds and ends. DHL was only shipping option, but getting it in 3 days was nice.
