We're definitely going to miss VeloCult. There are more options, but none quite like that. On the other hand, I've had people tell me they were never quite sure what was for sale at VeloCult.

It's nice to hear someone else articulate this. And, of course, the problem is exacerbated you prefer the handlebars close to saddle height. I feel like I've spent the past three years trying to...

I have an '87 LeMans that I built up with 650B wheels just to see how it would work. My experience was similar to yours, 650x38 fit but it was tight.

I first read this thread the day it was started as I was sitting at home debating whether or not to ride that day. I'd had a bad cold the week before and so worked from home the whole week and stayed...

Agree. I am in the process of building up a vintage Raleigh Competition with a black frame. I put a brown Brooks on there and I think it looks terrific. I can't picture it with the OP's bike because...

I'm pretty curious about that myself. It's got a cartridge bottom bracket that's spinning smoothly, so I don't really have a compelling reason to take it apart at this point but I might do so anyway...

I dare not violate Rule 16 (http://www.velominati.com/the-rules/#16). :p

Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me to keep working on the current brakes. I think I'll replace the pads first then the cables and eventually the rims if nothing else works. All those things...

It also says "mountain" not "mountains." I just need to figure out which mountain I am king of. Perhaps Col d'Kaylor as gugie suggests. I picture a scenario like a couple of years ago when...

Really? I was hoping it was either the pads, the rims, or the cables. Whatever it is, the braking is scary bad right now. I actually walked down a couple of steep hills because they were so weak.

I was wondering how ridiculous it would be to put a triple on this bike. The polka dots might spontaneously jump off.

It's actually even more unusual than that. The seat tube and down tube are tapered. They're both 28.6 at the top but around 36 mm at the bottom bracket. I believe this is standard for Serottas of...
