Most of them are in a pretty good mood and understand but some expect "special services". Sir, we have a list of 115 people ahead of you. I cannot help you right now. "Well I have a big ride tomorrow. You have to do this now!"

We end each day further behind than when we started. The owner has pulled out all the hair he had and the mechanics are real tired. Starts again the next day.

Not or a good time to need creative help on a vintage bike. Who knows when.....
You're being unreasonable and didn't get my point. I acknowledge the bike shops have been overwhelmed and was not trying to put blame on the person that saw my bike. Just sad I couldn't solve the problem alone and that it's been tougher now with the current scenario. I also didn't say that I needed it to be fixed now. I can see it happening, and I'm sorry that you have to deal with that kind of person. Don't we all have that some point? It can be frustrating working on a place that for most things you used to have a solution, now all you have is to deal with a low inventory of parts and tons of people on your front steps. If I was you, I would be glad I had a job in high demand. At the end of the day, people are working so many hours because there's money to be made now than at any other time in their lives in this industry. That might not happen the same way later. I wish the guy would have said something like, hey, it's being crazy lately, why don't we schedule an appointment so you can drop your bike and we can look at it to give you a couple of solutions? He just turned me down. Most likely I will never knock on his door again.

Sorry for my slow reply. If you would like to get your hands on the same headset, search 'innicycle' on Amazon but only if you want silver. If you want black, get in touch with me directly, and soon. I'm nearly out of stock and production of more units will take some time. Word of warning, these generally don't go on budget builds. It's a niche product with a lot of precision CNC'd components and carries a price that reflects it. Most feel it's worth the money; others not so much. To each their own. I wanted to create the best solution for running threadless stems with an original threaded steel fork and this is the result. If you compare the cost of a high end (Cane Creek 110 or Chris King) headset plus a threadless adapter, the price isn't so bad. Relative to just a $20 threadless adapter, it stings a bit.

No worries! It looks really nice. I'm adding to my list of parts for a future project. After some snags with mismatched components right now, I'll focus on working on anything that's not working well. I got a bit frustrated and that a lot is out of our control for a while, and we need to work with what's available. I appreciate the information. Thanks!

I stumbled on to my daughters first real bike


I was meeting a guy for a set of wheels and ended up getting this for $125 for my daughter. It needs tires, tubes and bar tape.

This is the after picture. Rides like a dream.

This was the unexpected donor bike. I saw it at a garage sale and had to stop and look. It turned out to have a new set of tires the size we needed and for some reason it had a Mavic front rim that is a perfect match for the back rim on the Cannondale . Bought it for $25. This is it after I put some tires and a wheel that I had laying around on it.

These anthracite colored ST1000s remain one of my Grail touring bikes. I mean, I'll take a black T1000 or ST1000, because the top is still the top, but there is something iconic about the anthracite. I've had my taste of the ST life with a few of them, but still look for a local one like this, just in 25" size. It'll join the party with my '83 Specialized Expedition, which is an epic bike in its own right.

Funnily, I've never ridden with it fully loaded. When I take it on my commute, there's a segment that I TT if the wind is not too bad, and this bike has my fastest effort! With knobby 32mm Panaracer's! Plus it has gotten a lot of looks and many appreciative comments from locals.
Another plus is it will make a great rain bike.

Picked this up a month ago after the original owner who bought it in 96/97 rode it a handful of times then bought a more suitable mountain bike and put this in the corner of his garage. I pumped the tyres up but both tubes after being inflated for several hours ended up exploding due to the rim tape being that brittle is just fell apart,so about 32 holes in each tube and the tyre sidewalls are a little brittle so new tyres when i get round to it.

A friend brought this asking what year I thought it was. DA7400 and marked R1000, 63cm. Colors show up on a 97" but that model didn't appear in the catalog. The R4000 had changed to 9 speed. I was wondering if they were using up the last of the 7400 on the R800 series?

Asked him to send another picture. I'm not seeing R1000 but he says there is a DA stamped before the serial number.

Looks just like my 1997. The reason for no model numbers, I've learned from this thread, is it is most likely a frame up build when new. As you can see mine has a full Shimano 600 Tri-Color group with Campy wheels. Great bike to ride! There are a few of these sprinkled about in this thread.

Here's my 85 ST400. Picked it up for $75. New tires, tape, and cables and it's my most comfortable ride.

Mid-90s R600. Found on eBay and practically unused for 25 years. New Vittoria Corsa 25c tyres, cabling, chain, Deda Speciale bars and Nitto stem.





Rides smooth as a thick pile magic carpet.

1987 Cannondale r600

I picked this up today. Its a 58cm sized frame. The paint is near mint, I have not seen any chips or scratches; the color is Hot Pink. It comes with the original Shimano 600 groupset, and the rims have barely and wear. The only thing that needs replacing would be the saddle and the handlebar tape and other consumables. The pedals were missing but I have a set to put on. I paid $200, apparently he had multiple people wanting to buy the bike so he wasn't willing to go any lower. It came with a frame pump too, which seems to be working.

Here's mine so far. 1984 ST series (not sure what number), bought as a bare frame with original headset, seatpost, and BB; also, questionable mounting boss threads and trashed original paint (thus the $0.50 engine enamel respray). User "aluminummonster" got a much better deal getting his ST complete for less money with OK paint; on the other hand, I would have changed the saddle, bars, and wheels anyway.

This was taken on one of my first rides on my newly built 650A wheels with 40mm Col de la Vie tires, which are pretty amazing. Brakes are Tektro (slightly modified), bars and stem are Nitto, saddle is a C17s.
