    1936-1939 La Greves Step Through

    Of course French city bike technology exploded during the Occupation. There was no gasoline, and people spent their transportation budgets entirely on custom bicycles from Paris shops like Herse and Singer. There were also French Jews hiding in the shop basements and building those frames...

    26x1-3/8 Aluminum Rim

    you can get both 650A and 650B rims (and quality tires) from Japan - pretty sure you're asking about 650A https://cyclesgrandbois.com/SHOP/336618/758933/list.html I also believe the Sun rims I linked to are the CR18 you're asking about

    26x1-3/8 Aluminum Rim

    not following your question exactly, but Scandium-doped (alloyed) aluminum is much stronger than previous alloys, allowing much thinner and lighter-weight rims to be formed and welded.

    DeDion

    btw, it wasn't that DeDion ever produced sports car suspensions, considered them, or even used the suspension design in their own automobiles Bouton designed it to make a tricycle roll-proof. The dead axle rear suspension produced such high roll center (SAE racing barstools) for such low...

    F Moser Forma

    thanks - and the last good photo I took of the bike, sporting her winter bar bag for peeling and stuffing layers as the day warms, taken on a last-March bluebonnet greenway foray. also due for a new handlebar wrap, which I have some white leather bar wrap stashed away

    14” wheeled Child’s libertas road bike pics

    I'll put in a plug for SJS Cycles - reliable vendor to both sides of the pond. From them, I've purchased new T/A chainrings, both in Strada and Cyclotouriste bolt center diameters.

    What bike did you ride today?

    without trying to totally hijack this great thread, ceramic is microscopically smoother and much more homogeneous than steel (no texture or 2nd-phase particles of any kind). Ceramic balls should smooth out asperities on the steel surfaces, and without grooves to dig new ones.

    Rivendell has brought back the truss frame in their new touring flagship Atlantis and a similar variation on their lighter AHH

    What bike did you ride today?

    I just reported on my first 7000+ mi run with loose-ball ceramic in steel cup-and-cone. https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/f-moser-forma.42733/#post-1101961 When I searched ceramic bearing on the forum, you and I have the only posts about ceramic bearings in the entire archive.

    F Moser Forma

    Decided to add to my old thread. The frame, btw, which I paid $175 on ebay, is actually a DeRosa Primato with Moser graphics - quite a steal at my price. The DeRosa-marked frame would sell for a lot more than I have total in the bike. Since my photo above, finally gave up on the Rivet saddle...

    DeDion

    That's quite a thumper. Through the 50s, DeDion was the only rear suspension used in Formula 1. Even though the suspension was designed by Bouton, DeDion has always received the credit for the patents.

    DeDion

    of course, DeDion is famous for their triangular rear suspension design, 1905, originally to make a roll-proof tricycle, but the design found its way into a few sticky automobiles, as well.

    Mystery Fairly Well Done Build

    the WM serial number is Raleigh, Worksop-built, M= September, first digit will be the year (70s). I believe you have a Gran Sport with the original fork, Raleigh-made fork crown and lugs, and of course, not the original components.

    Carlton Competition

    you guys are getting all catalog nerdy over an obvious lived-with bike. A pretty bike I'm glad doesn't fit me so I don't have to covet. From the rear drop-outs to the fork, the frameset really matches Raleigh Super Course in grade. My bet, the bike was delivered with the (a) Huret drivetrain...
