I've had quite a few over the years, but the standouts are my 1971/72 Gitane Tour de France - all original except the cables, bar tape, tires, and toestraps. A bit of paint damage, but I'm not...

You know, some of my bikes have 12 speeds! What an amazing advance, right? 1x setups have no practical value unless you're missing an arm or a large chunk of brain material - they're just the latest...

Merry Sales has them in the US for $18. Don't know about shipping from them, but it can't be terrible.




Don't know how they'll last - I only put them on a couple months ago and haven't put...

Ride it if it's your size, sell it to someone who will if it's not. I'll be doing the former with my '82 Team as soon as it warms up a bit.

Yeah, they're both wrong. The '74 English catalog shows the PX10E with contrast-painted Nervex Pro lugs. The PX10LE of that year had plain lugs and was apparently single-color. My '73 English catalog...

I try to set up bikes as they would have been when they were new or, in the case of stuff sold as a frameset, in a way that makes sense for the time period. Since most are from the cotton era they...

I always think it's bizarre when threads like this pop up in the C&V section. We're not supposed to be here for the best or the fastest or the smoothest or the most practical. If that's what we...

I rebuild mine because oil leaks out and doesn't do as good a job as grease. Most aren't that hard to deal with, though Reginas can be a bit of a pain. I won't even touch Sunrace or the other generic...

What with all the attempted trolling on this forum lately, you gave me a good laugh. Some well-placed mockery rarely goes awry.

Wow, that's fantastic. Every now and then I start thinking about building a frame but I haven't worked up the courage to try just yet. Doubt I'll be taking any of your business if I ever do, though.
