One of the list members tells of meeting up with a rider on a Litespeed who liked the members' vintage bike better to ride than his own modern bike. I suppose this has been beaten to death some time before my arrival, but I am looking at a Masi frame that is already refinished beautifully and I'm thinking " I could re-do the spacing from 126mm to 130 and put new record stuff on this and I'd really have a sweet bike". I have two friends who closely advise me on such matters. One is horrified by the idea and the other thinks it is the way to go for a bike one intends to use. I'm more than a little curious to see what list members might have to say about this. I suppose I'll really take some lumps here.
