Rare to see so many agreeing on a product. I'll give then a look. Thanks for the help.

I filed the ring, new chain and had to get a new rear Euro Asia cog for the rear. It has never been this nice. All 1/8" front and rear. Should have taken a picture before I rode it 50 miles or so,...

So just a followup as I am sure everyone was anxiously waiting for my report and no doubt on the edge of your seats for all this time. I did put my Dura Ace ring on my Campy pista crank. I had to...

Donít know how a lugged 531 can magically be better? Just a great bike to ride. Love that era of Campy as well. Only had to rebuild one shifter.

My Chas Roberts bike had a sister bike

Just wondering if anyone ever saw a light green Chas Roberts that had the same paint scheme as my blue one. I purchased my bike in Pittsburgh way back in the late 80's I think. I have ridden this...

My route to work is 5 miles. I ride up 282 feet and down 171 feet on the way in. I don't have a concept of that to be honest,...

Well my hope is to ride 3 days a week. It isn't a super safe ride for about 7 miles. That part sucks, but just have to ride and be as careful as I can be.

I'll say one thing, there are one heck of a lot of incorrect listings on Ebay. Wow! I am looking for a watch dial and the listings are very often false. Buyer beware out there for sure.

I can't leave my car at work. One hitch on this is my bike doesn't fit in my car unless I take it apart. I don't have a rack on the car I will have there. This is 1,200 miles from my home and the...

Sounds like a good approach. I wish I had one more month to get ready to do this, but it is what it is. I don't think I can park somewhere to make it easier, but maybe? Like the idea.

This still has me laughing. I ask a question and the overwhelming response is take the geared bike and then I decide on the fixed anyway. Hilarious and often true!

Wow, do you know me? Your last sentence hit home. If I was in better shape, I probably would take my fixed. With the job being physical and me in my 50's, I might actually wimp out and take the...
