I've had a lot of stuff come in recently, a Groupset, Couple of IGHs, Light for my recumbent trike, some frames, but the one I'm tinkering with now is this old, but probably not c&v, trek. Its perfect to ride to town and not worry about too much. While I want to clean it up and make it nicer I would like the surface rust, rusty chain, chips, and torn seat to cause a thief to pass it up. I think I'm going to put a taller stem on it, I guess I'm getting too old and fat to lean forward
The new modern brake levers with the large hoods/grips look comfortable, I wouldn't mind trying a pair but I don't think they would work with the old brakes. Surprisingly it shifts great I'm almost scared to clean all the gunk out of the derailleurs, it may be holding everything together. The brakes need some help, I think the cables just need to be adjusted.

New tires and rim strips for the 1965 Schwinn Racer I picked up a few weeks ago, and a "Schwinn Approved" script front brake assembly for the same bike.

A Park Tool pedal wrench. Worth every penny of $30. Lots of leverage and a round handle.

I ordered a dongle to ride indoors as I avoid the heat, though Iím not sure which I dislike more.

The eNay package arrived, and the dongle is shaped amazingly like a die cast Jimmy Johnson chromed #48 collectible, NIB. It even weighs the same.

My phone already had the sellerís apology in it, and Iíll be forwarding the model car to the dongle recipient, and vice versa, via pre-paid labels.

Sometimes, that awful auction site has normal people on it, and they do normal things, like make mistakes and then try to correct them.

I was thinking my 40 year old Suntour Cyclone Mk2 GT needs its jockey wheels updated, spotted this for £10 on Amazon




Sealed bearings and the same diameter as my spare Suntour VX jockeys (33/38 mm)

Comes with 4 sets of adapter shims, one of which will just take the VX GT through bolt (6mm).
However they are about 0.85 - 1.0 mm thinner than the original jockeys so I may have to get some shim washers.
