Yes, The Mondia is almost just like the one I had, except this one is just a little bit better.

Ha, that's a great pic of your daughter. 😁👍 I guess I skipped over it before, but noticed it this morning. 🙂

What is the second one from the right--black with orange graphics? That looks like something my husband would ride.

Cute kid. I remember mine being that small a couple years ago.

Thank you! She enjoys being part of whatever I am doing as does her older sister.

TriBiker19 Thank you very much! The only carbon in my stable is that '19 Fuji Gran Fondo and I do love it. I still ride each one though.

I picked away at the above flakes and decided it really needs a refresh due to underlying rust. Roughed everything back to this point for now. Certainly needs a smoother transition, tough with PC. I grabbed a British racing green paint pen that I found while out and about, but too dark. Will have to grab a few paints to mix. This’ll be my first time with paint touch up, thankfully it’s on the mule...!!



Plus I wound up defiling my second 49d set. Unfortunately Shimano doesn’t offer MTB pedals with French threads. Odd choice!



For some reason the mobile pic uploader is rotating anything but the original size pic, so that’s what I’ve added...

I'm drawing a blank on "PC" regarding the paint surface transition... light spray coat of rust protecting primer, using raised masking to just cover beyond the bare steel, sand it smooth, then do the same (or if hand-mixed brush on) color coat (on color I use minimum 800grit wet paper, I prefer 1200 or 1500) then a "cutting" type auto polish to further smooth, and then finally a favorite gloss polish. Each sand polish step takes minutes, max. let paints dry enough, and wet sand slowly, or you'll have to paint again. To fill in the corrosion pitting on a small scale I stick with the color coat, in thin layers, but they make easy sanding, "high build" primers.

Clear coat if wanted, and can go to 2000 plus grit to match existing surface if necessary.


Cheers, Eric

What's the bike???

At 6í1 Iíve been riding 25 inch frame bike. Felt great. Then this past fall I picked up a 24 super sport. Couple rides and I noticed I was riding better. So I set both bikes in trainers and have been experimenting with fit and feel. Iím almost 50 and know that fit is important.

Bummer to leave the look of a tall frame but the smaller bike feels better.

I actually like the look of the smaller frame better. There is something about a size 56 or 57 frame that looks pleasing to the eye, Not too big not too small but just right,

Fuchsia BASSO

Stripping Campy parts off for another early '90s build, I think this is a Basso "Astra"; decent frame (Columbus EL Oversize), but found a better fitting frame. Will put Basso frame set in the swap thread for now, non-Basso fork, I have a Basso fork that might be able to fit, but not OE. I need to remeasure, but think it is 56 cm c-c, I prefer something 54cm down to 50cm.

Built up the cockpit for for the vintage drop bar mountain/urban/adventure bike. SRAM X0 trigger shifters are a pain because they only fit 22mm bars. This is my all Nitto solution to shift from multiple positions.

Always nice to see another Reus. That is an older frame, is it not? Based mostly on the markings. How about some more shots

Nice job, Manny. Bring the extender to Pasadena next time and I'll buy it. I wasn't sure if it would work with old school Campy. Missed you last weekend.

Hey, thanks for the tips. Thatís more or less what I had planned, the powder coat is just a bit of a harder finish than Iím used to, itíll take a bit more care to feather in the new paint (nail polish maybe?).

The bike is a Ď71 Raleigh International 650b conversion, moving to a 2x11 build now versus the previous 3x7.

Today:
Once the acrylic sets a bit more Iíll do a final pass of mineral spirits to try to crisp the lettering a bit.

Late seventies to early eighties, would be my guess, based on the under-the-BB cable routing, the recessed brake bolts and the portacatena holes.

I bought it a long time ago, and didn't take any pics at the time, alas. So all I have to offer for now is the result of a test fitting of a saddle and stem I did today, to see if I could get it to fit mrs non-fixie. If she likes it I will proceed with the build, in which case more pics will be forthcoming. Could be a while, though.
