My long-gone Colnago Super that was just a tad too small.




My current Raleigh Gran Sport which is definitely too small.




My Capo Sieger which was also too small and has recently found a new home.




My Centurion Pro Touring which is just right.

I run my white '66 Paramount as a fixed wheel all winter long. In theory, it helps me to correct bad pedaling habits developed during the nicer months. In practice, I find I really just enjoy the simplicity of riding fixed on a regular basis.

I guess I would consider this white. It is pearlescent.

Repeat from last year. And unchanged. Full bike shot in post #79 .
All my pics of the AustroDaimler in the last year are 'on the road shots'. I love it.
Still the wet day bike, so it gets its' share of miles..

1981/82 AD Olympian. Purchased as f&f and cobbled into riding perfection.

Such a beautiful bike!

How's the paint on yours? Durable?

The durability of the paint on my Sintesi is horrific, but it sure looks pretty from ten feet.

Also Bob, have you met the new guy at Grand Performance yet?

He may have built your frameset. Bring it by and ask him.

There was flaking on the top tube and on the top of the bottom bracket shell. I took it to the Napa Auto parts store off of Hwy 280 to get a color match since they custom mix auto paint there. The guy working there found a pre-mixed Dupli-color paint that is very close. It too looks good from 10 feet.
I haven't met the new guy yet at GP. I will have to stop in.

1984 Raleigh Corsa, bought new by myself, built in the Lightweight Unit at Nottingham: first year for the Corsa and the only year in this paint - Oyster (pearl white). Shimano 600 SIS group (not shown here are the aero pedals and seatpin). Weinmann rims, stainless double butted spokes, red San Marco Rolls saddle, Cinelli 1a stem and Giro handlebar, Benotto ribbon - what else ? And Cinelli bar end plugs. Sedis silver chain, MKS pedals shown with Binda straps and Cinelli buttons. Bicycle build by my friend Steve Taylor - Steve mentioned in Wide-Eyed and Legless, book about the ANC entry in the 1987 Tour de France.
This bicycle purchased to replaced my stolen Roberts, which was returned by the police several years later !

Not sure if all OS look the same or play together but try the following:

Select below 'Manage Attachments'


Next, select 'from device'. Then below on your phone, 'documents'. From there, select image from whatever photo file or gallery.


After you've allowed time to attach photos, you can drag and organize arrangement. Then select 'upload'. Finally, select 'submit reply'.
