Subject: [CR]Bianchis on eBay

Can anyone advise where on the quality range the Eros and Brava models rate amongst Bianchi bikes? There seems to be a couple of nice ones on eBay I am trying to determine the value of. Item numbers are 3679223213 and 3679407444

Thanks

I have been using High end Vittoria (CX?) tires on the newer racing = configuration bikes, but they are darn expensive and I was not getting = much mileage on them. I got a deal on a pair of the Continental Attack = Force tires, the ones they only sell in pairs with a slightly larger = rear than front. I cursed the rear one royally, as it was the tightest tire to mount I = had ever seen, but I am sure singing their praises after a 30 mile ride = on them. =20 I really believe these are the fastest clincher tires I have seen. They = feel faster than the Vittorias and every bit as fast as I remember = tubulars. Hope this isn't off topic, but we all have to have tires on the = treasures we ride! Tom Sanders Lansing, Mi

Ahoy: Anyone know for certain if Weinmann offered rear brake cable hangers in different widths (at seat binder bolt) ?

I have a hanger @ approx 1 1/4 ins. though 1 in. would be more than adequate. I'll probably try bending it to smaller span before installation.

Just curious; my socks are not bunched in pedantic anxiety.

I venture, once again, that this is so because we don=B4t collect = cycles,=20 but legends. For what other reason could anyone seriously want to own=20 a, say, Thanet Silverlight?

P.S.: In the case of a sudden disruption of an e-mail conversation with=20=

me, please assume that I have given up the medium and contact me in a=20 more traditional way. I am in the trial phase of a last ditch system=20 after some others could not stand my constant abusing them.

The bending works fine. First bend it in at the existing "L" bends, then make a second bend out at the ears so the tabs will be parallel. This makes for an excellent rigid bracket with cable adjuster. I have this setup on my 1965 Holdsworth Italia Strada with Universal Mod. 61 brakes.

I am working on posting pics of this bike so you all can be amazed (and amused?)
