I am slowly collecting Suntour Superbe Pro parts for my daughters graduation present, a 198x Pinarello Tre Crime. I am on a budget so have been looking for reasonably good prices. One of the big items was a crank set. Found one on the bay last week and was pleased to be the only bid. I was surprised as I thought they would go for twice the price!


Next on the list is a pair of brake calipers. Have the levers already. Options are a seat post in 27.2, pedals and headset (though I may keep the Mavic) to complete the gruppo.

i finally called it quits on my old rigida rims on my grand record, even though the wheels were rebuilt just over two years ago. today, i received two m13ii 700c 36h rims from niagara cycle. they were under $33/ea shipped -- not bad, considering they went all the way across the continent. the box was severely damaged by ups, but fortunately, the rims seem to have made it without a scratch. sapim db spokes also arrived from danscomp.

woo hoo!

now ... what to do with old rims and 72 perfectly good, single gauge dt swiss spokes?

In my never-ending search for Norman Cycles stuff, I managed to spot this in an English eBay auction. This kind of stuff is easier to store than entire bicycles.

Earlier this eve I met a older gent at the bar by my house who turned out to be a well-heeled bike geek. After dinner he sold me a wheelset he built up but didn't like and a saddle for a Benjamin and the guarantee I buy the next round when I see him at the bar again.

The important details: the wheelset are Open Pros with Conti GP4000s. The front is laced to a Suntour Sprint. The rear laced to a SA S3X. The saddle is a like-new Brooks Flyer Special.

Photos to come after the build...

Well, these didn't technically "arrive", but I bought them locally. I'm upgrading components on my 1992 Specialized Hardrock, which came originally with a 200GS Shimano Group - lots of black, steel, and plastic (Derlin?). I bought a Shimano Deore XT RD-M735 from a guy who's an instructor at UBI, at the Kenton Street Fair & Bike Swap. Is in great mechanical shape, and shined up nicely.


At one local co-op I purchased brake levers Deore II BL-Mt63 (2 finger) for $10. I took them apart, cleaned, lubed and shined up. Think they turned out nice.


I would show you the nice improved front derailleur I bought, and installed, but I cracked the band because I wanted to make sure it was on there real tight! Ugh. Lesson learned on that one.

You are not like a WWII storm trooper so you'd never make Hoboken FD, even with the fanciest ax owned by someone in HB.

i looked ok in my stormtrooper costume. years ago, tho.
btw, the ax is awesome, i recommend if anyone in need of a small hatchet or camp ax.
at a not-bad price—50 bucks at bailey's, shipped directly from Germany in 3 days—this one would easily beat any american name-sake axes
(which are most likely made in C country nowadays).

Few people appreciate a well-made axe, unless they've spent some time separating pieces of raw wood from each other, with blade and human force. I raise my glass to those who have, and do. There's another German firm, I can't remember the name, that makes the finest splitting maul I've ever used. Worth it's weight and price; wonderful balance, amazing blade. The kind you use yourself, and do not lend or allow others near.

Brown Likker and Ebay, dangerous to your bank balance.

This came..

Disgorging this..

And this...



Going to have to build new wheels (Martanos if I can swing it) and mount sew-ups, maybe a Cinelli saddle, and that front tire scraper needs to be turned around. But the bike is incredibly clean and though I met her on-line in a slightly hazy condition, I think we are headed for a lovely long-term relationship!

One of my grail bikes! I almost got a red one a year or so ago. I had the money, but it was a bad time to spend it. A replaced front fork, but gorgeously original. One day maybe.
