Never mind. I figured it out after looking it up. When I got a look at the Delta Cleats on google I remembered the guy I bought that bike from gave me a set of cleats to go with the 7401 Pedals. I put those on the shoes and they work great with the 7401 pedals. Easy out. They do not work with the silver set of pedals though. Why oh why is everything so complicated? LOL I will need to order a new set of Delta Cleats as the ones I have are pretty scratched up.

An under saddle bag. My cardiologist told me I MUST carry an inhaler with me when I ride.

BTW 124/56 BP, a beautiful EKG, 8 more pounds lost and I grew a beard since he saw me last, he gave me an "A"

@autoteacher - any photos of this saddle bag? What kind? Vintage or modern? Also congrats on the great bill of health - keep up the good work. I've lost quite a few lbs. myself & it takes work.

A modern Avenir (I liked the french sounding name) bag. Going on my modern 1986 bicycle.

Thanks, it's an ongoing battle. The alternative (at my age) is dirt.

Keep up the good fight!

I scored an entire wool cycling wardrobe in my size from someone on one of the cycling lists I frequent. Sorry, no pics, but it was one of the most beautiful and functional 'hauls' I've scored in a long, long time... I'll probably sell off a couple of pieces that I'll likely never wear (like the Bicycle Fixation knickers), but I'm pretty much set as far as cycling attire for a long time!

My Bilenky is a work in progress.

I celebrated the arrival of my new Ostrich F104 bag with my sixth century of the season yesterday.

Left to complete on the bike:

A new front wheel with a Schmidt Dynamo gen hub and Edelux II lighting system

A decaleur for the new bag

Loving this Bilenky so far.

Not 'vintage' but I'd like to think perhaps a future 'classic'. Bill Holland built some classic steel bikes in his day, before moving on to Ti...

^I bet the Holland and Bilenky are both a joy to ride!

I had never heard of Sutram Tubular Repair Kits before, but I saw this at a reasonably low BIN with free shipping and had to have it. Anyone ever used this before? I have a slew of tubulars awaiting repair.

The Bilenky is a very heavy bicycle, but is the "smoothest" of my rides.

The bike is overbuilt in some ways.

I've already completed five rides over 50 miles and it is the most comfortable with a small load on the racks.

The frame fits just right, the Phil Woods hubs are flawless, the Nitto bars give ample hand positions and the Challenge Strada Biancas simply outperform most of the tires in their price range.

Best of all, I can ride the bike on hard packed gravel, cruddy city streets, country roads etc.

It's up for the challenge. Now I just need that dyno hub to show and we can build up that new front wheel.

The days are already getting shorter and a good lighting system will be mandatory for this new adventurous bicycle.

^ I like the thick chainrings on the cottered, the whole thing looks like a sawblade with a handle.

Chainbreaker for me today, slowly getting all the tools I want, still waiting for a lockring wrench and spoke wrench
