Pursuit bullhorns are my bars of choice on my Messenger work bikes! Like that Mavic one. Spell correct thinks they are good too, kept changing the word to magic!

Local library didn't have it, so I blew about eight bucks via eBay:


Then I blew a couple hours watching it, along with the extras. Silly stuff, but fun, and some interesting history. Fun to see our own Repack Rider featured.

Maybe I'll buy another copy and donate it to the library, as a sort of dare, see if they'll shelve it.

patented Stuck-No-More tool

This just arrived. I've been itching to try this idea for removing a beyond-stuck seatpost fragment. The 8" extension should come any day. It will either self-pilot on the seatpost ID or ventilate the seat tube. Wish me luck!

So the intention is to drill all the way through the length of the remaining post, and chip out what's left? Presuming it's a 27mm-ish seat post, that leaves less than a mm of material left. Should be easy to remove, but it's awful close for comfort as well.

Took delivery of a pair of Sturmfist 4's that were on clearance. It's still relatively cold in my neck of the woods so I'm hoping that they will get plenty use for the remainder of the season.

With spring cycling just around the corner in some parts of the country, there are some great deals out there to be had for sure. I was fortunate enough to snag the last medium pair at almost 50% off. These gloves will be nice to have around on days when the mercury plunges.

No need to apologize, Ray Ban has as much C+V cred as anybody or anything here and while no longer made by B+L, they're quality is still very much as good as it ever was and doing it with timeless style.

Hi 3speedslow,
New I believe, the headset is still in production and came from Alex Cycle as did the Suzue Hubs which are NOS. This is going on a Araya manufactured Tange 2 frame set from 1983 with some really nice details (total frame set weight 2,572 grams, not fly weight but it's a sportive), with all NJS Nitto stuff and a mixed bag of Dura-Ace 7703, 7803, 7900 drive-line and BR-9100 brake set.

These pronounced curved Campagnolo skewer levers came from a Chicago bike swap meet. I suppose one could've modified them but if so, certainly are nicely done. My poor photo skills probably don't capture the full perspective but both have exact curvature and no mar.

Next, I had a set of Gipiemme alloy skewers acquired NOS from Boulder Bike. Really nice for vintage weight weenie builds and bargain budget.

I'm close to finishing an early 80's euro pro team bike mostly Campy Super Record but with other interesting and not too common parts. With that in mind, I swapped the Campy curved levers to these ally Gipiemme skewers. I think they're pretty cool for that project.

You’re right. I just took a closer look at mine and the curve definitely doesn’t look as pronounced.

This has me wondering if the curve could be straightened out to make it look pre CPSP I have 1 set of straight ones from the early 70's but the chrome is roached. I have many sets of curved ones in good condition but I would hate to ruin a set for an experiment.
