I have 32mm tires on 1 road bike, and 25mm on the other. Around Dos Palos, the 32s are clearly faster because the roads are so bad, the 25s rattle my teeth out at full speed, and I end up slowing...

Ok, sounds like I need the whole thing. I have an M6 10mm nut that will fit on that post, so I thought the spring was all I needed. I guess it's also a specific nut, and so likely the whole caliper...

You could always bike out here to DP, and then we could have a peloton of two. Actually, I get some of my six children to ride with me occasionally. But that's the closest thing to a cycling club...

Yeah, I kinda thought the components looked as if they had been downgraded. If that Le Champ in LA was a 25", I'd absolutely swipe it up for $200. I'm tempted at 24", but at 6'6", I probably should...

Thanks for the note, Ben. That was a good tip, and a similar bike. But it was 24" and a Le Champ rather than a 25" Team Champion. Still a good bike, but one level down.

I got 32.5 miles in rolling through the cotton fields around Dos Palos, CA, before it got hot. No one else in the house was up yet, so why not? It took 1:51, and I held an average of 17.3. Not bad...

Yes, in my previous research, I looked at the VeloBase scanned catalogs. The bike I found seems to match the one (in terms of color and Suntour components) from the '76 cat. That's in part what I...

Hello all. I'm in Dos Palos, which is small and rural enough that I'm probably the only one here from here. I think most of the NorCal board is Bay Area. On the off chance there is a small contingent...

You guys are tough. Who cares if the guy is proud of his ride? A 31 year old could absolutely go do that without knowing if it's good, if he's a rook. Why does he have to buy a turd for a first bike?...

Well, bike frames generally only go up to 63cm. You're probably right about the size, though. I do some of that mx myself, not because I don't like to spend the $75, but because I don't have time to...
