It's also nice to see a classic steel road frame with slotted dropouts that hasn't been sacrificed to the hipster fixie subculture!

the first cyclecross bike I ever saw was a Bianci Team frame from circa 1970, with Clement seta sewup knobbies and a campi 5-speed setup with guard rings on the chainwheel, this was at Spence Wolfe's wonderful 'retirement' shop in Pacific Grove, CA, circa 1978 (Spence made me an awesome set of tied-and-soldered 4-cross touring wheels for my Raleigh Pro, sadly long since demised)


oooh. some eyecandy I stumbled on. a 60s vintage cinelli w/ Spence tied&soldered tubular wheels!

www.theprosstuff.com

It's a website run by some of my former teammates in Boulder. They pool their extra kit and equipment and sell it thru this website.

There is a fair amount of brand new clothes for sale.

Chuck, the guy who runs it is a friend of mine.

Site loads super slow but the prices are worth the wait. Next best thing to veloswap.

That damn site. After 30 minutes of searching, I finally found it.

http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/schwinn/16202

My first non-training wheel bike.

My parents sold it for maybe $5 at a garage sale.

My first bike...

Is it any wonder I have to fight the urge, everyday, to buy assless chaps?

Mine was actually metal flake gold.

I remember getting jammed in the nuts by that freaking shifter nob.

I still refuse to use downtube shifters.

I rode one of them.

Once.

In Roet (no umlaut on my keyboard ) as a kid. 'Interesting' IIRC. Livin near military housing and a friend of a friend had one.

I still have fond memories of Volksmarsches around the little dorfs (towns) around St Leon/Roet. Damn near the whole town(s) would come out and wander around the woods on a Sat/Sun. BIG party afterwards to basically nullify all that great walking/running you just did! LOTS of wursts, beer, etc.

I was given a chrome "Stingray" bike without a chain. When I went to buy a chain, I found that it would cost me $2.00 or so. That amounted to a half day on the slotcar track, so I never bought the chain.
I traded that bike to a kid for a Sears 2-place go-cart that had worn out tires and didn't run. I fixed that, replaced the tires and my Dad built bronze bushings for the wheels. I ended up selling that to one of my Dad's friends for $50.00. That money went into helping pay for a family vacation fishing in Minnesota. Much better deal in the end.

I saw somebody do the complete Santa Fe century on one of these a few years back and no, it wasn't a kid and he wasn't small.
