1986 Panasonic Touring Deluxe

Just finished up this 1986 Panasonic Touring Deluxe that I built up from a frame + fork. Derailleurs, shifters, and brake levers are all correct for the year and model. Wheels are a one-of-a-kind...

Quentin Bicycles?

I'm looking at picking up a Quentin road bike that a guy is getting rid of. He's asking $125 but says he's flexible on the price. The problem is that I've never heard of Quentin bicycles before. ...

My 1979 Raleigh Project

This bike was given to me (yes, as in for free) in great condition, so it only took a quick overhaul and few finishing touches to have it road-ready. It's a 1979 Raleigh Record that I cleaned up for...

OK, so I think you might need to read over FBinNY's post again. The main idea being that the limit screws do NOT move the FD cage around (mostly). Instead, they provide the limits (one screw inner...

Thanks for putting my mind at ease. And yes, I forgot to mention in my initial post that I did, indeed, have to tighten the calipers, but that alone did not remedy my problem.

When the lagging edge of the pad touches the rim, the leading edge is about 1.5-2 mm from it. Sorry about not having a picture, but I'm lacking in the camera department (girlfriend is a...

Brake Pad Toe

I recently overhauled a 1979 Raleigh and outfitted it as a 'cross bike (sort of...I basically just put 'cross tires on it) for my girlfriend to have a bike to hit some of the local trails. Project...

Hmm...that's a good question. If I remember correctly, the diameter of a 700c rim is 8 mm smaller than a 27". I know that with standard road brakes, you can switch to a 700c rim as long as you have...

I like the way this one thinks. Blue bar tape would take this from 'beauty' to 'masterpiece.' I found blue cork tape at my LBS. Currently on my red and white 1967 Schwinn Varsity (America! F!#$...

I agree. I like the idea of building up a mixte. My problem is that mixte frames are nearly always (from what I've seen anyway) designed to accept road wheels/tires. I'm going to need to put tires...

EASILY the funniest thing I've heard all day.

As far as the fit of the bike goes, Nerd, you don't necessarily need to touch the ground when seated on the bike. In fact, you really shouldn't be...

As far as cleaning it up to make it look purty, I have had good luck with naval jelly to remove tarnish and rust from bare...

Do manly men ride mixtes? Of course they do. Do I ride a mixte? No, I don't. Am I a manly man? No, not really.
I prefer the classic look of a horizontal top tube, but that doesn't mean that I...
