As we pack for our various journeys to Leesburg, the lugged promised land, no doubt we are noticing various odd items on our bikes. So it is with me: on the early white 60cm Nobilette I'm auctioning off, there are a few corrections from the last announcement:
Pictures: It was pointed out to me that the pictures on Flickr were private and not viewable. It took me a while to figure out how to undo that. The pics should now be visible. If you can't see them, email and I'll try to send some as attachments.
Cranks: The pictures show some later Suntour Aero cranks. These were replaced by 1st generation Suntour Superbe 175mm cranks. These were the Sugino made fluted arm style. A set of Superbe road pedals were also added: the gold Superbe labels are visible but are worn.
Derailleurs: The derailleurs are silver Cyclones with a short cage rear. This was the hot set up when I was a wee lad, as the Cyclones were 10 or 20 grams lighter than the Superbes. None of us could understand why the higher priced stuff was heavier: thoughts such as shifting accuracy and durability were strangers to us: weight was all.
Headset: I didn't specify a headset, and in fact there is a Stronglight A9 (in silver) on the bike. I finally gave up on finding a Superbe headset that didn't have a 27.0 crown race. You can continue the quest if you win the bike.
Otherwise, all of the rest of the announcement is reasonably accurate. I intend to have the bike available for exhaustive examination pre auction.
