Don’t be hatin….. I know I bash trek a lot but that’s mostly because of their business practices. I needed new ones and these were a great deal at $65 off.

Dura-Ace 12-21 7-speed Freewheel (7400 Series)

Yes, it came in the post a day or two ago. Why? Well, frankly, it was a mistake. But it is a really nice freewheel.
The 12t sprocket screws on with a male thread, the 13t screws on with a female thread, and the other 5 sprockets fit on splines (of two different sizes).
Of course, neither the threads nor the splines are compatible with the 7400 series Freehubs, which is what I thought I was buying when I made the offer.

If anyone wants a Dura-Ace 7-speed corncob freewheel, please get in touch. I think that I have a matching Dura Ace hub, too.

I got in a nice set of Dura Ace 7800 STI shifters, calipers and RD. Already have a NOS crankset on hand and probably do have a matching FD.

A new set of Panaracer Pasela ProTite 27x1 1/4 tires for the 1976 Motobecane Grand Touring. The bike needed some proper gumwall tires...

I’m turning my Spectrum back into stock.

Pretty basic, new replica hoods, those showed up a few days ago.

White housing, check.

Cream wall tires, also check.

Now for the life of me, I swear I ordered white leather handlebar tape. It’s not shown up and there’s no charge on any of my cards.

Did I mean to order it and forgot? Probably.

I got in a short FSA SLK 29.4 seatpost for the Pegoretti. That should take care of the problem I had with the other seatpost on this bike. And then I got in a white Fizik Antares saddle. That's the shape that works best for me and I'm trying to convert pretty much all the bikes over to a version of it or the Kurve variation.

It came in an envelop with a TdF stamp. I thought that was a pretty cool touch. It has been on ebay for well over a year, he put a good discount on it and I bought it.





I am not a Francophile, but the dude in the middle is Cino Cinelli, the one on the right is his teammate in 1938, Olimpio Bizzi wearing a Unis Sport T-shirt. I liked that so I made one for myself.

Three very cool dudes. Don't suppose you'd care to share the Unis Sport design? Cafe Press or other one-off online t-shirt shops should be able to print them on demand.

Maybe?

Can't find it on my home computer. I'll try the work one when I get back from vacation. I bet I still have the silk screen downstairs. Bring over a shirt, and Bob's yer uncle.

It was yesterday that I received 2 flashing tail lights. I like to ride in the country as well as suburban roads. I ride with Mirycle mirrors, but often people drive close like they don’t see me. The Cygolite 150 is what I got based on great reviews. I got two just in case and will order a few more mounts for quick easy use on multiple bikes.

Yesterday I got 2 sets of NOS Campagnolo Portacatena. All complete but unfortunately no original bags. Still not sure what to do with them but they might look nice on an old Italian bike.

I received dynamo hub electrical connectors. These are too easy to lose. I lost one last week. This time I got smart and bought two.

A box of goodies I found at Marktplaats, from someone cleaning up their shed. "For French sports bikes", the ad said. Well, I like those.

The seller turned out to be an acquaintance from another forum, and the box a real treasure trove. The MAFAC front hangers were worth the price of admission to me, the rest was a bonus.

Laser cut long pulley cage plates from a CR contact for a Crane. I'll probably disassemble it, file and polish the plates, realize the derailleur looks shabby, but a new one, then have to build a bike around the resulting setup...

First for me- tubeless tires on C&V bike

Today arrived two 700x34c Corsa Pro Control tires. Plan is to use with Cliffhanger rims (because I already have them) in Cino MT this year. 15% discount was a pleasant surprise. I have some anxiety about the new-fangled tubless technology however. I'm getting too old to learn new things.

If you look around you can still find Corsa Control tubular
I got some 28mm a couple of months back, and they're damn fine.
