Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

NOS Wrights leather saddle still in the bag
Dual curved metal downtube cable guide that goes near the bottom bracket. that's for another bike that has Shimano Dura Ace AX components on it.

Oooh...can't wait to see that bike! Love me some good Suntour. I really want to build up something with some nice Superbe Pro but sadly none of it has yet to grace my spare parts bins only a few lower tier bits and bobs that I haven't found a place for and I really don't want to spend the money to build another vintage road bike I really don't need.

Another antique Delta Rocket horn and NOS Delta Triple Light (brake, tail, reflector), probably another Triple and need at least three more Rocket horns, cheap.

3V tank horn for my Schwinn Hornet straightbar tank, hopefully other fun junk.

I bought some more things for the Bianchi and also to make riding it more comfortable.

I got a pair of Giro bicycling gloves
A Giro helmet
Bontager bar tape
A Cateye wireless 8 functions bicycle computer. = Current, average & maximum speed;trip distance; total distance; elapsed time; 12/24 hours clock; calorie consumption (not that I'll ever use that) Backlight with Night Mode
2 new spare inner tubes with removeable Presta valve cores
New bicycling shoes with a sole that is great for a touring shoe and for use with toe-clips. The shoes will take an MTB style cleat but I won't be using them for that.
New pedals that look a lot like the old Suntour Cyclone Track ones
A new Take-a-look mirror for my sunglasses. I tried using it on the helmet visor but 1. it wobbles a lot more there than on the sunglasses and 2 I hit a big bump and the mirror came off. therefore I put it on the sunglasses instead.

Cheers

Weights are exactly as advertised.

Ordering from Mack is kind of an old school experience - it reminds me of mail order catalog shopping back in the day. Place the order, get a confirmation from Paypal and then nothing. Several emails asking for a status update went unanswered. A few weeks later the doorbell rings and the mail carrier is asking for a signature. A hand lettered envelope from Tyczyn, Poland is presented with stamps featuring a Polish soccer star and I'm like, "Oh... Hubs! Cool!!!"

Now I'm sure Light Bicycle in China would ship my rims slower if they could.

Hi there. Today I finally got around to taking some images of the rebuilt Bianchi. I posted them on a Bianchi thread in another thread. It's post #60 here:

I thought Mack stopped making hubs? Iiiiinnteresting. (counts dollars in wallet).

I just ordered a replacement Veloflex for the road bike. I was surprised it lasted as long as it did. They ride great but are really prone to cut.

I don't think they are insanely expensive for what they are.

Prices are on par with similar Dura Ace hubs and they are much less than Campy, Phil Wood or White Industry.

I bought a pair of used Suntour Cyclone track pedals for my Bianchi. I just put them on the bike tonight. I'll ride them tomorrow.

Getting Suntour bottom bracket cups delivered today. Just need the spindle to complete the bottom bracket assembly.

Got a KMC8.93 6/7/8 speed chain and quick-link yesterday for my Dura Ace EX 6-speed rear wheel.

Got a Sunrace 11-32 nine speed cassette and a Sunrace 11-25 nine speed cassette. Took them apart and built up a new 9-speed corncob 11-19 cassette. Also got a new 9-speed chain for it. This went on an MTB with drop bar, bar end shifters and 1.5" smooth tires. I use it on some of the gentle rolling hills routes I ride around here.

Cheers

Just got my first Brooks - a team pro. Got it in honey, looks good with those goblin hammered rivets. It feels pretty hard out of the box, but excited to sweat into it over some miles soon.

Army Surplus. 3 M1 Garand ammo bags / $15 including belt clips. Those clips are often $1/ each. Use the grenade straps through the springs on your seat.

One of my local shops is closing up for good but on the bright side everything's on sale. Swung by today and picked up a flared drop bar for my IRO, shift/brake cable set, a Twin 6 cap, and a buff for the cool weather coming.
