I'm happy to say that my parts don't need that level of magnification.

FWIW- Anyone looking to buy a new Mountain Bike owes it to themselves to look at a 29er.


And...the Bay Area ADV folks need to hook up for a M/B ride some day.

This is true, but now that we've seen your fancy new bike, we're afraid that we'll be left for dead on the back section of wagon wheel.

I'm debating between a C-dale with a Lefty or just go cheap and get a Price Point frame again. You know... just to try it out.

I can't throw down the miles like you can, and my riding style could be described as 'triathletic in a fredly sort of way' but I'm enthusiastic. Wanna start an ADV biking group? Once-a-month rides?

Sounds good.

When I'm JRA, I'm going 12-13mph. ...and unlike people that need to prove their manhood by hammering on their riding buddies, I've been riding long enough to that I don't have anything to prove. You wanna toodle? Fine with me! You wanna hammer? That's fine too.

So, who has a 54cm track frame for sale?

I almost went with a Tallboy but the guy wanted near the price of new for something with a non-transferable warranty.

I sure liked that frame...

Not my bike, but as a tall rider with long legs, I can definitely relate. Love the lugged steel...

I figured I'd post up my completed '63 BSA Sports, since it's FINALLY done.

I started with a piece of restaurant flair, that was destined for the dumpster. The new lessee of the building wanted the walls cleared of everything and this was one of the items. The only thing I could salvage was the frame.







This is what I ended up with.

Thats beautiful!!

So let's hear the story. I ride a bianchi pista and absolutely love it but have been wanting to find an old frame to restore like that. I hear there are issues with doing so related to thread pitch, bearings etc. edumacate me.
