Holy zombie thread, Batman! I first offered these shoes nearly 4 years ago! Pretty sure I sold them, one way or the other, but I haven't been into the BOX O' RANDO BIKE STUFF lately.

Glad to hear I was not the only one who observed this!

I scored one just like that (1984, Superbe Pro) in I think 2010, with some advice here from Centurion expert RobbieTunes, for $200, maybe 250. Sold it a few years ago for $450 on eBay, to a guy in...

Paris-Tours on NBC Sports Gold--wtf??

So I watched, or tried to, Paris-Tours as recorded 'in the cloud' off the NBC Sports Gold app a few weeks back. (Have to admit I have not subscribed yet, but our daughter did, so we used her...

In my experience even worn Miyatas tend to be in good shape, possibly due to excellent paint. But...wow! Brand new early 80s bikes!

Hey krems81! Been quite a while since you were here I think. We met when you were working at SBP.

Are these (and the others on eBay) perhaps coming from a stash connected with Jefferson Park?

WTB: Brooks in *maroon*

Nah, at least not all kids. My son (22) said while in HS that the bike meant freedom to him, almost the exact words a 60-something friend used describing his HS bike travels back in the 60s-70s.

LeBron loves cycling!

I saw this article and figured a bit of cheer might be welcome on the usually dour A&S forum.

LeBron's comments equating riding his bike with freedom are what many of us feel, and what I've heard...

I like this whole thread! NBCSn seems to have come up with a good plan for coverage this year's Tour. And though cycling fans may be a tiny minority, we can also be a passionate one, so I intend...

Things settled out and we've been watching the AM, full version, even some of the 'pre show.' My wife found she really needed to manually program each stage as the DVR wasn't recognizing them. I'm...

Sagan doesn't win because he's the absolute fastest or strongest among the sprinters. He's not. And he loses sometimes to guys who are,...

Somewhere back in the C&V archives there is mention of an office in the US (or maybe it was Canada?) still handling Miyata warranty issues up to ten or so years ago. I think it was an import/export...

The Tour on NBCSN, live vs 'primetime'
