My original intent was to get some stories out of you all about what you did when you didn't have enough money do do/get what you wanted to stay on the road/track. I guess by the lack of stories that many of you did not have that problem or you don't want to share the stories maybe because perhaps you harbor some degree of anxiety about that time. Whatever the case, AGAIN: if your post does NOT contain classic bicycle content WHO CARES; ! I'm sorry to be so harsh, but people just don't get it. This isn't the place for these semantic digressions; it's classic bike stuff like parts and stories about experiences with classic bikes. Classic content: I need a 165mm cottered track chainset, preferably English with a 1 inch pitch with a 24 tooth ring.
