"Not worth the effort for a 501 bike.
This is a bizarre break though. It makes me wonder if the original framebuilder just got the seat tube too hot when originally brazing the BB onto it and damaged the temper of the steel and this…"
"I have written in Sharpie all around the rim-tape inside the rims on my bikes in large visible letters: THIS BIKE IS STOLEN! PLEASE CALL (my phone number)
If my bike is ever in an LBS getting a flat fixed it will be because it has been…"
"I looks pretty slammed to me. I wouldn't be able to look further than 10 feet in front of the wheel with full neck extension upwards.
Then again I have a short torso & arms with long legs and a bad back... "
"This is a new definition of "absolutely ruined" for me. It sounds like the frame was not permanently damaged and simply needed more prep work before building up than you had expected.
When getting a frame…"
"Le Tour de Shore has to be on the short list of favorite rides. Camping makes the ride with the pizza truck and hanging with folks around the camp fire, as do the extra stops for meals with fiends outside of the official SAG stops.
"I bought one a couple of years ago but never installed it. It's pretty cool but heavy and clunky. It'd be great for CCM and such. If I built up a dedicated beach cruiser I'd certainly make it part of the build.…"

"I really like Fluid Flow. It's made from sheep lanolin oil/wax mostly. It leaves behind a thin waxy coating on whatever it was sprayed onto even after being rubbed off with a cloth. It works really well on painted frames too. Marred and dulled…"
"Some people go to the pool to just sit on a recumbent noodle noodle toy and splash around. They don't swim back and forth to put any real distance in by doing "laps" or are in any hurry at all to "get anywhere"…"
"Just like car drivers who won't don't merge when they see the lane is closed up ahead and drive past all the stopped cars to the end of the empty lane and then want back in.
I wonder why this lane isn't moving?
"Maybe the seatpost is really stuck in the frame and the guy is at the end of his rope because it's too low for him and can't raise it. He's hiding and watching, hoping a thief will get it out for him.
"I don't see shoaling as any different than coming up to any line of people waiting to move on to the next stage of whatever they are doing and going straight to the front of the line, it is line-butting.

I recently lost all my keys at Lolla this weekend and do not have a spare anymore. I was going through the posts and saw that you have an angle grinder. My bike is right by my car in the river east parking garage and was wondering if you could help me out. If you can message me so I can give you my number that would be amazing. Thanks.
While parking my 1967 RSW folder at the train station this morning, a non-biking contemporary struck up a conversation. Turns out he still has two 60's English Raleighs in his basement that "no one wants". He lives near the Metra Ravinia Station in Highland Park. If you get this message (not sure about Chainlink messaging) and are the least bit interested, I'll be happy to pass on your name and email address. Let me know.
