I need to try it just once......... Can I make it look like a Brooks B15 again? I seriously doubt it would be usable even if I can but I gotta try at least once before I die.

My umpteenth set of vintage Cat Eye RR-810 wheel reflectors. I put these on everything - my old Raleigh steelie, my modern hybrids, my folding bikes, Dan Cortese...

A very good, dear friend.

These are the best in the business IMO, I have all the the major players and still only use these that I have had for almost 50 years.

Today I received this seat post from Flea Bay. The defect was not included in the description but I think I am going to keep it anyway. I find it hard to believe that the crack is from use but rather from a manufacturing defect. MH

I bought it for the size. But did not have a view of the crack in the Bay pictures

Not a defect of manufacture I don't think. To me, it looks more along the defect of design rabbit hole.
I bet you can find further examples.

I got in a few items this week. Stuff for the Gianni Motta, the Krapf, and the Merckx Corsa 01.


Velocity Rims on Chorus Hubs these are going on the Motta

Good tires!

Just realized the cassette wasn't part of the listed sale, just reached out to the seller about that.

Chorus hubs

Chorus hubs


This is going on the Krapf with the rest of the Superbe parts. NOS at a reasonable price compared to all the other ones I could find.

The Swiss ones will be used on the Krapf. The others are going on the Domo-Farm Frites bike when I rewrap the bars with the correct team bartape.

SunTour triple cartridge. Got a good price because it lacks the mounting cups, but Phil mounting rings will work.

I really like the IRD triple mounted on my Mercian, so when I saw this barely used compact double for a reasonable price, I jumped. Ok, going to pause the buying behavior starting now

The cool Raleigh style are on the other side. I'll eventually have this painted but I am going to cover the bare metal and try setting it up first.

The full Reynolds 531 in my size flavor. Honestly I don't remember the model but I think it's a 1981. I loved how light it was so I had gugie make it heavier!
