I do not know the answer to this question but.., La Vie Claire gets my nomination for best Jersey ever, period. Richard (Mondrian) Rose (Toledo, Ohio) P.S. I sure wish Alex @ vintagevelos.com would reproduce that design in wool. Sign me up!

Does anyone know who made the mid-80's LOOK Reynolds 753 frames? I don't think LOOK made their own steel frames.

Thanks

Looking through the Emilio Bozzi catalog I see quite a few parts made by = "W.A" - seat binder bolts, crank bolts, headsets, pedals, bottom = brackets, etc. Is that the same company as "Way-assauto"? Am I = speeling that right?

Thanks for any info.

Yya kidding me?

It's not even competition unless there's mention of Crumpet.

Sorry chaps, with regard to supremity of KK's (?) sweet dough holes i couldn't agreee *less* - its either 4 for $1 plain donuts from my local family bakery, or 3 for $1 Churros from the street vendor who risks deportation just to make some coin -or- in a real Parisian bistro i quite fancy them high-zoot beignet a la creme's accompanied with a glass of gewurtztraminer or botrytis (when im being taken out for dinner by some lucky chick).

As polite as i can say it - there are three things i wouldn't be caught dead holding; a Krispy Kreme, an L.L. Bean catalogue or a wedding ring. To me they all spell some form of approved bourgeois consumer creeping death/cliche. Iits gotta be cheap and dirty or magnificently lavish and expensive - the same way i like my Crumpet.

Llife is too short to be the same. Art is in the extreme's.

Classic bicycle content: street vendor churros fit great in a jersey pocket and you dont have to get off yer bike and duckwaddle in cleats. I might not have changed the world by buying them but they have saved me on a ride or two.

donuts = dough-buts

Anyway, who's judging this contest?

I may head down just to take the prize with my family recipe for Pavlova. http://www.pastrywiz.com/cakes/pavlova.htm (****)

This was the Cinelli "Colorado Limited Edition" stem and bar. It was made for the Colorado Springs World Championships in 1986. The bar and stem came in a nice black nylon, yellow zippered bag (small duffel style) with the Colorado Worlds logo silkscreened in white.

I think I remember these on the neutral support bikes, blue Eddy Merckxs. Anyone else remember this?

The salvamanubrio is exactly what the words mean: handlebar protect. It is a simple device that was mounted onto upright bars (and less often on drop bars)at the point where one would normally lean the bike up against the wall. Made out of a soft rubber, it would not only protect the chrome on the handlebars, but also prevent the bike from sliding and falling. It should be noted that apart from the occasional stand built into the rear carrier, Italy was very averse to BB mounted kick- stands, so either these handlebar protectors were used on their own or in conjunction with saddle clamp mounted pop-out stays. I have just such a stay on my 30's vintage Bianchi city bike.

The salvatubo is used on step-through frames to protect the finish of the frame when you are stepping through. It is basically a tube that fits over the frame tube.

Sounds like a bargain for a Spence Wolfe (Cupertino Bike Shop) built, near new condition, Cinelli Bivalent wheelset on eBay: $676.00.

Dan, Check the archives: http://search.bikelist.org/?SearchString=Gian%20Robert

I've got a Gian Robert, but mine is of the cheaper stamped-steel variety. It seems they did make some high end parts at some point. It'd be great if you could share a photo of your Gian Robert with the list.
Cheers,
