Still working on my theft recovery minivelo project. Labor day sales brought the cheapest good tires ($10/pc) to finish the running gear. The hubs are shimano rm30 procured from ebay for $4 and $8 respectively and the rims were a discount cart filler from CRC at $11/pc. I rehung all the (still dirty) original parts, save a cassette and rotors. Once it's ridable, I'll start with the "Fred" accessories. It's getting a headtube mounted basket and some sort of rear rack. And fenders. Maybe recycled campaign sign corroplast ones to really ramp up the uglyness. and then it'll probably be stolen again because Tacoma

Just minor stuff today. First off did some final dialing in of the derailleurs on the 85 Bianchi. I also put a new chain on it. Planning to take this one out again tomorrow.


Earlier this week I also went over this one with a better polish too and really kicked up the shine even more. Paint still has some marks and wear but she's sparkling in the sun pretty good now.

Then I just mounted some new Conti 5000s tires on a new set of Campagnolo Zonda's, using latex tubes of course. I want to try these on the 96 Calfee Tetro Pro to see if they finally make it feel alive under me. I've been trying to get this bike to feel alive under me all year.

This morning I just made a few changes on the Kuwahara. Swapped the GP 4000s 700 x 28 for some new Vittoria Corsa G 2.0 700 x 30 (couldn't find 700 x 32 in stock anywhere) hoping they'd be a bit larger on the Mavic G 40 rims. On my other bikes this Vittoria's measure larger than size but on this one they only came in around 28mm. Hopefully they'll "grow" a bit over the next couple of days. No big deal though as I like how the labeling on these has the red to match up with the bike. I also swapped in the black Gyes leather saddle for today. Finally I adjusted the rear brake caliper that was setup too tight for these rims. Bike is now an even 24 lbs.

[QUOTE=eom;22646287]New tires for our tandem. Replacing 38x622 Paselas that measured 36 mm. After 24 hours the SpeedRIDEs measure 40 mm at 60/65 psi.
Extra width required replacing the stock cable fixing bolt and washer with a hex head bolt, inserted the bolt from the front, stock 5 mm flat washer and nut. Used a Dremel to to trim the bolt flush with the nut. Installing the bolt "backwards" allowed me to cut away from the seat tube.

Measured weight of tires is 470 grams and 490 grams.

Today was a day for building a wheel, and then a trip to the co-op to volunteer for a few hours. Finished the wheel and then installed a pair of 20c foldable tires with a pair of new Torelli tubes. Looks like Bwilli's Raleigh will be sporting some new shoes soon. Smiles, MH

Soooo,
Aquired this 2005(?) Kestrel Talon SL on Thursday.


After a wash job, inspection, and saddle/pedal/rear brake adjustments- off on a 20 mile test ride thru Carrollton.
This bike performed like a new bike … no cracks, groans, clicks, wobbles, or missed shifts. It’s Shiny too! Needs tires, seat, pedals replace tri setup with road cockpit and cosmetic detail.
Tear down will start in October ...
I think the Baby Raptor has found a forever home.

I came across some free lumber set out on the curb: two 8 ft. 6x8s and a 10 ft. 2x12.
Rolled the 2x12 home by balancing it on my winter mtb beater.
Currently cutting and sanding them for a garage table to put an old bench grinder and a vise on top of.

Found some play on the BB of the Raliegh Team USA as I was doing a preride check on it. Pulled off the one crank arm, adjusted the BB, and then reinstalled the arm.
I'll have to keep an eye on this to make sure I've got it locked in good now.

Here's the ol' beast up in the mountains later in the morning.

The celeste shift cable housing came in so I swapped out the old original coiled housing on the RD with the new Jagwire housing and a new cable. Also made a minor brake adjustment too. Tempted to throw some new Campagnolo Zonda's on just for a ride or two but not today. May also bump up the tire size a bit too. But I'm close to done with this. I'll probably enjoy it the rest of the year and then move it on in the spring since it is pretty small for me.

I haven’t been wrenching this morning but doing some rummaging. I’ve been collecting wheels, rims in the living/bike room lately so I need to go through the bags and straighten things up. I found a few things I kinda forgot about and something I’ve been looking for since I moved to Shady spines two years ago.

Sorting and retagging the bags.




I sort of forgot I had these apparently really nice Vittoria tires. There is also a NOS GP-4 32h!




Every now I then I root through my tool boxes, parts boxes and miscellaneous stuff looking for these misplaced “Chicago Bolts” (they are pretty spendy too) to no avail. I finally found them and my Speed Metal Ti Allen wrench skewers in a wheel bag. Apparently when I moved from Pa I put the Lightening disc in a bag with the bolts. Removed the disc to take pics at some point and promptly forgot where the I left the bolts!

BTW, this is a simple Lexan plastic cover that bolts onto your rear wheel. You actually ordered them to fit the inside diameter of the rim. Mine is for a MA-40 with a freewheel so it doesn’t quite fit right in a tubular. They were mostly marketed to TriGeeks

PS. I also came across a pair of Servo Corse tires I must have bought around 2012 relaxing on some NOS 32h AVA rims.

@Bianchigirll Those are awesome tires I have heard, and very difficult to come by with the tread. That's a nice surprise to have them stowed away.

Second time I've had to do cosmetic and slight structural repair on this Flite Evolution (this time, the damage was sustained after being hit by a car):











Don't know if I trust this anymore at this point. Certainly I don't want it to crack, and possibly put a shard of CF into my posterior! But I did want to save the appearance, and I think I succeeded.

Cleaned up this Fiorelli



Cleaned this up to ride and see if it was straight. It is. Fun ride. Regina was not doing well. Gave the inside a de-rust, followed by a 20 weight hot oil purge. Load of crud, and works much better.

Agree on all counts.

I wonder if a big piece of helicopter/200 mph tape or some such could be stretch wrap adhered to maintain integrity, maybe.

Or you could have Rudy do a Unicanitor style cover on it.

Also seems like you could lay in a reinforcing layer underneath to backstop it.

I finally got around to overhauling the BB and brakes on the '74 Professional I picked up a few months ago. Trying to decide whether to buy some tubbies for the original wheels or just relace to clinchers.


74 Raleigh Professional

Correct pedals and Silca pump

*sigh*, it's my size.

Have I found a home for the set of black Rustines hoods in my stash?

Bar swap on my RockHopper - reduced the number of clamp joints by 66.7%
- man, can’t believe I spent this much on this bike…. Frustration not being able to get a used for the last 2 years…. And don’t see bullmoose bars in stock often. Now swap to a silver seatpost!!

I have a patina-Ed version of this in blue frame. Do you know what tubing it has? Tough to make out the sticker.

i always thought it might be Falck or Columbus Aelle.
