Only the Modolo brake levers and Specialized touring pedals are vintage but I built my Rambouillet in the tradition of classic sports touring bicycles. With 73 and 72 degree head and seat tubes, 2...

Just finishing up a Trek TX300 (actually a '79 310 but there really is no such thing) which is supposed to take a 26.8 but with the single butted Ishiwata Hi-ten the ID is 26.9 so that's too tight....

I use cloth tape almost exclusively. If I finish it off with twine I'll shellac the twine but I prefer the tape uncoated. To me it feels better without shellac.
