Well a special vehicle for a tandem might be nice, but it's really just a special rack that is needed. If you can put a roof rack on, you can get a tandem mount for the rack and it can go on pretty...

I know that this is a bit tangential, since my solution needs a frame that can accept a belt drive. But I have been commuting for decades in New England with very salty roads, and for many years was...

Yeah, well . . . it was built in the 80s, so yes, Purple Haze makes sense, with Hendrix power riffs in the background. The frame color was called "turchese", Italian for turquoise since Hugh used...

Hi Merziac: I only have the one frame from Hugh Enochs. It was never even labeled "Jevelot", though, just bought it from Hugh. He also repaired it once, when I got hit from behind by a car, so he...

Wow, thanks Merziac! I knew a bit about Hugh's career, (racer, connection to Wheelsmith, etc.) but it's really cool to see these other frames by Hugh/Jevelot. The stories read a lot like my...

Thanks, Brent. I didn't know that Hugh sold frames as Jevelot. He made this one custom for me, and it never had any markings/decals, etc. So I didn't know that it has Jevelot brethren.

And I guess...

A 1983 Hugh Enochs frame? He was a California racer that made some frames in the SF Bay Area. I'm the sole owner, and it's quite desirable to me!

Hi:

I'm ISO of a Cinelli 1A or 1R stem with 9 or 10 cm reach. To fit standard 1" steerer, and standard Cinelli bars from 1970s.

I've got lots of stuff for trade. Some pictures follow:

Hi Jethin: I could use a 9 or 10 cm Cinelli 1A stem in excellent condition. I have one that is about 8 cm that is bit too short, but it is in pristine condition, so I can live with it!

I have one that I bought in 1983, which has many 10s of 1000s of miles. I think it is in quite good shape though. I've recently gone "retro-roadie" and all 11 speed, since I wasn't riding...

Perhaps a stupid idea, but to me that looks to be purely a bond failure. Of course, it is unridable, and it is indeed fortunate that there was no serious crash. But I guess I wonder if that bike...
