I've had quite a few British bikes. I like the quirkiness of French bikes and the often over-the-top flamboyance of the Brits. The two I've held onto through an absolute ton of herd thinning over the...

Excellent find! I'm a Carre´enthusiast, but most of what I can share is largely repeating what the experts on here have shared with me. Those others will be along soon enough to offer more insightful...

I decided to "townie-ize" this frame, cobbling things together with available bits and pieces I had on hand. The only thing I needed to purchase was a seat pin in the correct diameter, which turned...

The stamped rear dropouts on my frame are pretty chintzy, in my opinion. And that's ok. I like the patina, and I've begun a rough upright build with Bluemels I have on hand that are an amazing match...

One of the groups I ride with regularly rides right past World Class Bikes. A couple of us in the group are "old bike nerds," and we are always curious about the shop - none of us have have visited...
