Nice VAR wrench, multi tool(s), spoke tools, old third hand, presta valve, appears to be a 15mm socket breaker bar thingie...

Hmmmmm...tire irons and real iron tire irons...canít find the name on line, but, theyíre from England...looks like radiiaLL or raduaLL...

I ordered a 23/23.35 crank removal tool and just got a note that it would be coming by boat instead of air. Be a long wait i bet!

New bike bag day

Feel like a kid on Christmas day!

I ordered three bags from Ely at RuthWorks.
I order patches from the Tarik Saleh Bike Club and Tarik sent them directly to RuthWorks for sewing.

I'm looking forward to enjoying these and trying to be a good club member.

Maybe people are cutting back on non-essentials.

Anywhooo, to be a contrarian - as usual - I finally pulled the trigger on the PlanetX Holdsworth branded, vintage looking crankset. [Should it be called replica? ] On sale for under $100 with further % discount.

Going on the Holdsworth Special (Irish Harding branded). I like drilled rings on a few bikes. 48/34 and 172.5 for old legs and steep hills. And besides, the bike has been treated as neglected stepchild since last fleet component swap-around.



Going on the black Harding branded Holdsworth Special.

Good choice- they are back on sale? they were sold out for a while--- great price on a vintage look compact. I had one (on a centurion..)but sold that bike... may need to get another. its going to look spectacular on your Harding and you will be happy with the compact I am sure.

After replacing the old Sedis Sport with a NOS Sedis Sport I noticed some skipping. New freewheel time! Luckily found a new identical one. Riding better than ever!

Here's a link with a bunch of pics of the bike when I rebuilt it... New years starting off with a bang! Ritchey | Retrobike & https://forums.mtbr.com/vintage-retr...y-1066034.html

Found a donor bike for the cranks levers & brakes. Now it's just as I wanted it. Ridiculous amount of fun to work on & ride.

I'm guessing mini-velo? Either orange or black.

Super stoked!


As OEM but Brooks added.

I'm sure it will become a favorite.
The Merckx has a drivetrain with VO crank (which i love) that will be emulated on the Holdsworth.
48/34 drilled, but given the black frame the 'new' NR rd may require black or gold fill-in and the chain is to become gold colored.Here is the Merckx

No chromed stays on the Holdsworth, so the gold chain may work.

A few bits and bobs - From VO during their 20% off Garage Sale deal, new levers for the International, brake pads and a leather top tube wrap. Rene Herse also ran a 'clearance sale' and I managed to get one Bon Jon Pass lightweight for $49. Would have liked a pair but at least I have one on hand should one of mine need to be replaced.

I have those on my '70 Pro. Very happy with them. They shift beautifully and look right at home on a vintage frame.

A box full of goodies found my mailbox today, despite USPS telling me that it was "Delivered, To Agent" yesterday.



Unpacked and shown with the Chorus brake calipers that arrived Friday, you can see that I've got another retro roadie build in the works.



I love this rear derailleur -- look at the length of that cage. Just the ticket for my lack of climbing abilities.
