This frame and fork was left by a dumpster, with some other odds and ends, how could I NOT rescue it? All of my research indicates this is a Raleigh Super Course Mark II, 25.5" (just my size). WL4...

Schwinn Traveler rebuild

I posted about this in September 2018, shortly after I had this frame powder coated. Guess what? It sat in my basement for over two years before I decided to get it dressed up to go out. Original...

I need an intervention to stop me buying saddles.

I see this brand on eBay a lot, Cardiff Harlech. It's made in Red, Brown, Green, Black, and at one time White. The prices have fluctuated wildly over the last two months, from $60 to over $110. ...

If it's 63 or 64 cm, I'm probably going to buy it.

My wife is going to throw me or the bikes out of the house if I don't stop acquiring them. I can't resist a 63 or 64 road bike, especially from the 80s or before (oh the curse of being 6'4"). Raleigh...

Cannondale R500 Crest 63cm

Got lucky, and found this one in my size about an hour away. Not a grail bike for me (those would be a 7-11 Merckx, or Lemond Alpe d'Huez) It's a Frankenbike. Seller bought it used at a shop in...
