With receipt of a new set of folding 700c Paselas (for under $48 shipped ), today marks the first time I've had all the bikes with at least 25mm wide tires ... and the first time I mounted 28c tires on my own road bike.

Thanks. And yes a reproduction. There no brand or company name attached to it. Seller has 2 more in-stock if anyone is interested.

5 Park Tool cone wrenches: 13mm-17mm to add to the RV bike tool set...like brand new and less than wholesale...and, oh, yeah, the most used sizes...

These changed styles quite a bit over the years...someday I’ll go through the boxes, etc and take representative pictures...

Miguel,
It looks like you just barely have enough tires for one season....

xiaoman1 Yes all 700x25. The Giro, Gios and Tommasini will all get fresh tires. Those current on the bike will move to the Miele and Bottecchia.

Piasentin Super Vitus 971 frame from Lancey France

Not quite! The box contained a new-to-me Super Vitus 971 frame along with a Stonglight headset, TA bottom bracket and a J.P. Routens (JPR) seatpost. The frame is branded Piasentin, but the only real information about the company I could glean is that it's a bike store located in Lancey, close to Grenoble. I have no idea who made the frame, but it's of really good quality. It's also very light for steel and a bargain for $100.

That frameset is georgeous at 3x the price. When we know more about Piasentin, 5 x the price.

Everything in the house for a wheelbuild tonight (or this week)!
I will be building a new wheel for the Gazelle tandem, converting it from the outdated Dutch/British standard of 650A or 26 x 1 3/8 (37-590mm) to the somewhat more common 650B (44-584mm) with wider tyres.
Ryde Andra 40 rims should offer plenty of strength and the 5-speed IGH drum brake hub should offer a bit more range than the old Sturmey Archer AB hub with its 3 speeds.

Father's Day gifts, delivered on the 'new normal' schedule. Too bad they are cotton - cannot wear them when cycling. To the store, garden parties and debutante balls only.

My wife found them on some Facebook site.

Today I received what is likely an anachronism from the past but it sure was nice to get. It came from a BF member who apparently remembers how nice it is to communicate with others. To the member; Thanks for reminding me how nice it is to help one another! Smiles, MH

Heel supports

These days I don't take my truck much. Most of the things I do are within a few miles of home. Weather has been good. Why drive? So I want to ride different bikes without having to switch shoes upon arrival. Campy/clips too narrow for work boots. Harder to get my sneakers out of them than cycling shoes. Half-clips ok, but like a convertible with the windows up... So I keep looking. These look awesome, and fit my boots perfectly. Perhaps a tinkering machinist? Have a truck errand now, but later...




Light Alloy... Production or machinist one-off?
Recumbent design?

1228 is a fantastic table that is highly under r rated. Running one through a pioneer sx950 and DCM Time Windows.
could not be happier. Enjoy!

Shimano A600 pedals - scratched

I got what seem to be the last pair of Shimano A600 pedals directly from Shimano, but they were clearly used - scratched pretty significantly and one of them had some latex paint or something around the threads. It came right off. I got a good price, and can't really find them online anymore. I dunno, do I keep them, or return a pre-beaten up product that was supposed to be new?

Today was a good day!
I got a box from Bianchigirll with some pad holders for Modolo brakes, and a mystery box from South Korea. Two boxes of dental face masks from the country who got the corona virus under control by using them. My friend from Seoul is a good friend indeed. An interesting aside as I am sitting here in week 15 of house arrest due to the virus. Smiles, MH
