Heres another, but I'm sad to say that I've recently closed my shop so I can spend more time on frame building.

Very cool!

I really like this picture (B&W of the chainset, and little bicycles) - http://flickr.com/photos/acmebicycle/405941368/in/set-72157594562216664/

It has a "modern art" vibe to it, nice.

"Our visit to Colnago concluded with a swing through the Colnago Museum, where Colnago showed us two new additions to the incredible collection. Right next to Colnago's Gloria racing bicycle from the late 1940s, lovingly restored to original condition, was a rare Master prototype from the early 1980s, with a unique dual downtube design that used later in the Colnago Ti Bi-Tubo used by Tony Rominger to win the Vuelta de Espana a decade later."

Which gets less respect, a kickstand or a Pletscher rack? They're both useful and, when properly mounted, don't damage a bike.

I find the rack indispensable. My two most-frequent riders have them (and several less-frequent riders, too) and I use the wire baskets with a hook that engages the rack and are then held in place by the mousetrap. (I have only seen these for sale in Italy and Switzerland, but it was cheap to stock up when I was in the neighborhood.) The basket is about the same size as a grocery store basket; it holds more than a big bag of groceries and can be carried in and out of the store. The rack itself can carry panniers, your jacket when you warm up, a U-lock, newspaper,...and it mounts a taillight or reflector. The much-vaunted Blackburn rack does only the first of those, as far as I can tell. (Unless you add bungee cords, straps, or other accessories) Attendees at Larz Anderson might have seen my Schwinn, with the basket loaded up with junk. I thought that was at least as American as the loaf of bread and jug of wine aboard one of the beautiful French bikes.

See the standard rack at http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/beandk/racks/

and, if you need one to carry a heavier load, see http://www.pletscher.ch

Mama mia! that bike would be worth a lot, but what was he thinking with that tape job? Could that possibly be "correct"?!

Hello all - a quick intro - I have been receiving the CR list for quite some time but have not actively gotten into the discussion - for me it has been a great learning experience. My name is Dan Rogers and I live on Bainbridge Island (a quick ferry ride from Seattle) and I have a garage full of old/vintage road and MTB rigs that I ride as often as time allows. I am 47 and rode rather much from about 76-85, worked at the High Wheeler Bike Shop in Boulder for some time, but did not keep up with it. I started riding again in 1994 and love old steel road bikes from the era I am most familiar with. Off topic, but I also ride "old" late '70's-85 rigid MT bikes. My earlier bikes were a Freschi Criterium (which I wish I had not sold!) and an early Trek 770 (which I wish I had not sold!).

As I now have 17 bikes and cannot open the garage door, I really need to give some of this away, so I suspect that as I get through everything I will be regularly posting. Nothing NOS here - I ride the bikes so these things are used. Please contact me off-list at drogers@modernmind.com if any of this is of interest. I will have clothing, shoes, bikes and parts - anything I got free will be yours likewise.

First is FREE to a good home - a Campy old winged logo high flange 36-hole hub laced to a 27x1.25 Araya rim, Maillard Atom 70 5-speed freewheel - no clue on threading but if you want it let me know (should be about $20 shipping in the USA, or if you like I can remove the FW and hub and mail them without the rim). Never rode this one so cannot speak to condition - the hub spins fine. Incl straight lever skewer (a bit rough).

Second, a VG+ pair of Sidi Titanium quill cleat shoes - size 46 - they will actually fit an American sized foot! They fit exactly like my modern 46 sidi's as a point of comparison. These are leather soles with the ti cleat plate, full laces and not separate insole. I am not an expert but I think these came from the late '70's. Near new with modest wear on the soles, heel pads were added when they were new and it has saved the sole. Cleats are white NOS and also in great shape. These were my club and century ride shoes and are in great shape. $70 plus shipping - will ship worldwide for postage only.

As I get to them I will have 3 road bikes to sell (all 55-56cm) - an early '80's colnago super (fair condition - regular daily rider some years ago, complete bike all SR), a 1972 Negri (all original NR, 2 sets of wheels clincher and tubulars - great shape), and a Raleigh international frame set.

Thanks all - and many thanks for all the dialog and great information!

That Gloria was previously covered on the list.

Steven Maasland says the bike was given to Ernesto by a local cyclist... so it's conceivable that it's not a tape job done by Ernesto but rather that's the way the bike came into his possession.

Hi,

FWIW, Velo Orange lists a Stronglight crank puller for $45:

Cannot possibly have been Ernesto's personal bike. Firstly, it is way too big for him. Secondly, I just happened to be in Cambiago shortly after he received it as a gift from a local cyclist. It is however in much better shape now than it was when he received it, so it has undergone some personal attention.

The plastic tape is not necessarily that far wrong, as it was available in the 50's (perhaps earlier?).

Like I said, a nice tool, but not cheap. Cheaper than stripping the crank threads, though. In The Day an LBS would have a box full of Stronglight extractors at something like $5 apiece. The Stein tool is much nicer than the old original Stronglight ones. Except they were kind of cool, with a 16mm socket that was used to turn the crank extractor, but which could also be used to remove the old 16mm Stronglight crank bolts.
