Yesterday and today, not all strictly via post...

Veloflex ProTour 28s. These came from Italy via DHL. I bought them Monday. They arrived today. And the shipping was free. Go figure...



Specialized Touring Pedals (like, my fourth? fifth? set). These took Royal Post to my nephew in north London, who forwarded them to Andrew's daughter in south London. Andrew picked them up and carted them across the Atlantic, delivering them to me yesterday, in person, on his Jack Taylor.



Along with the pedals, Andrew brought me a Williams crank and other assorted bits from his stash in the UK. Making this all work on my AutoMoto should be an interesting challenge. If this works, it will be a Williams crank (one ring to start, maybe eventually a double) mated to either a Zeus or Bayliss Wiley spindle, which will be riding in Stronglight BB cups and Wheels Mfg bearing balls. I have no idea if I will be able to pull this off, but I figure I have all winter. If I decide to keep it long-term, I will eventually go for a Stronglight, Duprat, or some other period correct French cottered crank.

@smontanaro +1 I also just received a pair those same Veloflex tires from Italy. Mine are mounted and stretching on pair of newly built wheels for my Colnago project. The tires seem really nice out of the box. Really grippy feel to the rubber, and very even and straight (no lumps). I was disappointed when the Vlaanderens went away, but the Pro Tour seems to be a good option, too. Cool pedals, btw.

I really hate those plastic crank dust caps with the slit that nobody has removed for the last 38 years so you end up being not that careful removing them and they get all manky.
Solution is some period NOS metal crank caps from Ebay for £20 that actually take a hex key, arrived from Ebay 1 hour back and already fitted.

Campy Athena parts






I'm rebuilding my Zullo from Superbe Pro 8 speed to 11 speed Athena. I just got in some lightly used silver Athena 11 speed parts - front/rear derailleurs and crankset. Waiting for the brakes and shifters/controllers to arrive now.

A couple of Minoura SwingGrips.

I have spent a week's worth of evenings thinking of a way to build a decaleur that I can easily move from bike to bike, that will work on frames from 50cm up to 65cm, and doesn't look too obnoxious. I had already looked at hundreds of parts that I might be able to use, when I came across these. All they need is for the tube to be replaced by a longer one.

I've really been wanting to 'upgrade' my Koga-Miyata GentsRacer's shifters from the kinda beat friction-only Shimano 600 6207 that are on there, to something a little more 'modern' and with the possibility of indexed shifting should I decide to go down that road in the future. The Koga, be it fortunately or unfortunately, has a top mount shifter boss, and I really did not want to go with a clamp-on shifter set up. However, finding a top mount boss, with friction/indexing shifter capability seemed to be a pipe dream. I'd only seen a couple very random pics of them, and even velobase has them listed as 'legendary' status.
Happened to be doing an eBay search, and saw an NOS one. Almost couldn't believe my eyes, so I asked for a few more detail pics, hoping nobody else would do the 'buy it now' in the meantime. Got a quick reply from the seller, he accepted my offer, and it arrived today. Super excited about this, as now I can move forward with a few changes I've been wanting to make to the Koga.

The elusive #6439807 shifter mount:






Test fitting, just to confirm it would fit. It does!

Cool! Iíve never seen one of those before. Iíve got a PRO Miyata with that same upper mounting point. Iíve still got the original SunTour 6-speed friction shifters but good to know there is a solution should someone need it, even if seemingly rare.

A cool tool for those days when lunch means buying a baguette, some fromage and a saucisse along the way.

Folding cutlery, containing a knife, a spork and bottle and a can opener.

At less than 2 oz (52 grams) it shouldn't slow me down too much:



It's small, but not too small:



It looks and feels well made, too:
