The triple triangle always stuck in my mind from childhood. I picked up a 1992 GT Timberline last year for a good price, gave it a splatter paint job, and have been enjoying it. Apologies for the...

Here's my haul. I think I put a handful of fun replacement crap in there, although had to hold on to a couple of things that wouldn't fit. Next time!

Nice, bikemig! I'm headed in an all-road direction with mine - you have to ride a lot of pavement to get to the gravel here in NJ! I swapped the 52/42 TA 3-arm crankset out for a 46/30 and have a...

Fat tire attempts on 70's Moto GR

I just got some 700c wheels from Velomine for my 70's Motobecane Grand Record, which came with 27" wheels. I've been hoping to get some wider tires than the 27x1-1/4" Panaracer Paselas that I was...

If you need to rebuild, take the opportunity to upgrade from straight gauge?

I always order spokes from Yojimbo's Garage in Chicago. Great to work with.

Gotcha - thanks for the info. I think I'm going to put in a few rides on this and see how it goes before seriously considering more changes. Probably the best bang for the buck would be to leave...

Hi, all. Here's the Grand Record (1976, I think?) that I've been working on for the last couple of months. (C&V has been a great help!) It was my father-in-law's, he bought it from the original owner...
