Just a new pair of cone spanners, my existing pair are getting worn with frequent use. Got a deal on e-bay, 0.99 plus postage - no one else bid

Yep, direct to me after 3 months. I do like the ProTek covering on the saddle.

205g and with a choice of nose piece colors.

27" wheels were never popular in this part of the world, and nice tires for them are hard to find. Found a pair of these in the UK, and they arrived today:

I can't wait to see the thread.

One of the very few bikes I regret selling.

It was a blast to ride.

Congrats.

I do plan to change the stem at some point...and also the saddle...but...first...get the front brake cable replaced, chain replaced, hbar tape replaced...and get it out on the road!

It is amazing how badly a stem like that stands out, isn't it?!!!

One Dura Ace 7700 Left STI hood. He sent a 7800 in error, and corrected it.
One Bontrager Inform RL saddle, used. I bid .99 on it and won. It's that nice.

Yes. Vintage stoker dummy brake grips. Could have done it many different ways or make them, but couldn't break tradition for the old sled. Supposedly, these are NOS but I doubt it. Good enough for me. Should look retro cool on the rando bars + vintage Spenco grips. Recall them... lol?

Robobank time pedals in orange glory! Direct from France! I don't know what year they are. When did Time stop making their first generation style pedal?

Christmas in September the past few days.






I actually bought eight sets of Kool Stop pads. I figure I will put them on everything I have now, and have a few left over for future projects. The Conti bike (a Conti Special, according to the decal on the left side chainstay) was a local CL find. Not much higher level than gas pipe, but practically new. It might go up to Michigan permanently. I'm a Look KeO nerd, and always seem to be short a set. Finally, I've had good luck with a Brooks Pro, and an ISCASelle Record leather seat (until it got drenched ), so when the VO saddle turned up I thought I would give it a try and see how my tush likes it.

Assorted random parts from a friend of mine, and a crank puller. Now I can fix the axle I put on backwards.

My son and daughter-in-law found this somewhere in the U.P. The brakes sort of work. The pedals and wheels spin. Maybe I should buy a mouse and train it to ride the bike.

See, what you want is a rodent with longer legs, like a gerbil. I did this and asked him afterward how was the bike, and he said, "twitchy".
