Bummer. One of my favourite people on the Forum. Always had a cool project on the go and kind word for most everyone, as well as a deep well of knowledge regarding many things C&V.

Those blue ano'd Reflex rims are certainly a (blue and) silver lining here - stunning effect.

Yeah, I work in a shop and observed these saddles going out of stock with our two Brooks suppliers...then disappearing from the offerings on the B2B sites entirely.

Wow, that long! I hadn't realized.
I only have one bike I've owned longer, the '85 Nishiki Prestige I bought as a frame set in 2009 or 2010 and built up after moving to Vancouver from Montréal....

The photo credit here actually belongs to a colleague - phone pic snapped by either Jackson, on the Lemond, or Dylan, on the Miyata 912 in the middle. I don't recall for certain. My bike is the...

Thanks. Just need to service/re-assemble the rear wheel to get this one done - as soon as I get a little break from work, this will come together.

Thank you. As I suspected, just a bit short/low in front for me. Stunning bike, but it *would* detract a bit if I had to put a 40mm setback post and an unduly tall stem in there...

Vintage Serotta - ca. 1980?

Recent eBay acquisition I could not resist pulling the trigger on here: a rather 'vintage' Serotta frame set that I'm guessing might be ca. 1980 or so?

I sell these at the shop I work at. The tool - if I am correct -...

There is indeed a set of friction-only Sprint or Superbe levers with the ratcheting mechanism. I believe they are the LD-4850 shifters, though I am not sure (and can't find on Velobase either)....
