Saw this Miche/Record 700c wheelset on Craigs last night for $10. Just assumed the seller was fishing for a higher price, but nope. He wanted only $10, which is less than what the presta tubes alone are worth.

I got a completely empty but sealed package from Amazon today. It was supposed to contain a crucial brake fitting. But there was nothing inside.

Amazon just keeps getting better and better.

Mad Honk gifted me a Bauer Momentum (I think) frame that needs a little work. It has a dent in the top tube and the left hand seat stay has come apart from the seat tube. It seems Bauer is/was an Australian bike manufacturer (not affiliated with the Canadian Bauer of hockey fame?) A quick string check of the rear triangle alignment suggests it's been pushed a mm or three to the drive side. Bringing that back into alignment should improve the strength of the seat stay/seat tube joint, once I get to that point. Were I to braze it without making that adjustment, the joint would be under a fair bit of tension. Does anybody know about Bauer or its bikes? I believe the serial number is A4705, FWIW.

I've only taken a couple crappy photos at my workbench so far, neither of which show the frame's problems.




I've never seen such a stout steel fork before. Obviously, it's a tri-bike frame. You know, the more uncomfortable the bike, the faster it goes.

Zoom bars. ═ wanted something close to a Maes bend, in silver, without loud graphics, and at a reasonable price. For $30, I am not disappointed by these.

Their only drawback is that my camera doesn't seem to be able to properly focus on them.

The brickwork is robbing the focus, camera not C+V enough to care or know the difference.

Skip,
It should probably get it's own thread so It can be thoroughly gone over by the folks here on the forum. I think it is going to be a fun project for you. The guy who dropped it off at our co-op looking for a trade, rode it as a single speed fixed gear f that helps. Smiles, MH

Thanks, my apologies. I only found one reference to the brand which kind of implied Bauer was an Aussie brand, but the particular instance that thread discussed was made in NZ.

All good, just leveraging off the Australian/New Zealand rivalry. (I'm Australian, just to be clear.)

You may have seen this thread: https://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/v...bauer#p1480214

And this is the MAX Bauer I mentioned in that thread: https://fixed.org.au/t/bauer-columbu...elbourne/69000

This track bike is allegedly a Bauer: https://fixed.org.au/t/bauer-max-track-build/52883

There's another Kiwi marque called Bosomworth. Eddie Bosomworth apparently assisted in setting up Bauer: https://www.forzabikes.co.nz/blog/922703

I have wanted this for a while. I finally got a copy but I can't open it until Christmas. It came shrink wrapped, so I couldn't even sneak a peak.

I love a vintage shoe. I went on a Bata Biker buying spree a couple of years ago when they kept appearing in my size and in good condition, so I'm set for life. Presumably, that is -- unless they fall apart after a ride or two, vintage glue and all...

Looks like you're lucky the cassette didn't saw all the way through the foam.

Yeah it wasn't the best packed I've ever gotten for sure. But everything seemed to survive. Funny thing is that's a SRAM 10 speed cassette and this is a Campagnolo 10 groupset. Still waiting to hear back from the seller about this little "snafu".

As worn looking as that cassette is, they'll probably tell you it worked just fine or it was a bait and switch.

Its funny, I've had well packed ones be gacked, ones that were just thrown in a box come through unscathed and plenty in between.

Still really pees me off when they don't screw in the RDO screws and or protect all the dropouts, seat cluster and HS/HT damage/contact points.

Me, too! The old style is timeless to me, and basic black will never go out of style. Only ever got one pair of Batas, but they were just a bit too big, and I never seem to find them in my size on Ebay. Maybe someday. Super-awesome shoes for touring, or JRA-type of rides, too.

Oh, and if you want to make 'em last forever: Shoe Goo, or 5-minute epoxy works wonders.
