    Olympia Spirit Junior

    Finally picked it up yesterday: Campy levers, hubs and derailleurs, Mavic rims, Columbus tubes and a little rust. No serial number as of yet. More soon....

    Varsity kick-stand question

    Due to unfortunate circumstances, the kick on my 74 Varsity snapped off, leaving the empty barrel, still welded (if slightly ajar). Question: if I hacksawed or Dremmeled it off, would the integrity of the chain stays be compromised or should I just leave it on? I kinda want it gone, but still...

    J&B Cycles, Miami

    It crushes me the way folks don't take pictures that matter. ;-)

    J&B Cycles, Miami

    Aloha! Came across this posting on FB and wondered if anyone has ever heard of this company out of FLA? It looks like a standard Japanese lightweight to me for the era. I've found an importer in the area but nothing specific as to fabrication.

    Magic potion for cleaning decals?

    About a year ago I thought i read a thread regarding how to clean yellowing decals without damaging them. Can anyone remember the recipe?

    What bike didn't you ride today!

    This 1978 Traveller III that I overhauled last summer has turned into my daily driver.

    Craigslist Buyers....... "Eager Time Wasters, Who Do Not Follow Though".

    Ive used CL and couldn't imagine ghosting on an appointment: damn rude, and everyone's time is valuable.

    I thought that suicide lever was part of the crank: ...so damn clean!

    Ross bicycles: what say you?

    Thanks for the input. There's truly no model in mind: it's just always been in the back of my head re: American bikes that aren't Schwinn. Just haven't had a whole lot of exposure and always wondered. Oddly enough, over the past few weeks ive found a couple online that look pretty sweet: newer...

    Ross bicycles: what say you?

    Gotta say: I'm digging the geometry.

    Ross bicycles: what say you?

    This is truly a question from complete and utter ignorance: I don't have a steed in mind. It's a bald-faced plea for information: I just know nothing about other American bicycles, Ross first and foremost.

    Ross bicycles: what say you?

    Full disclosure: I grew up in the Midwest and in a Schwinn family. Ive never owned, ridden or even briefly looked at a Ross bike. So, as a strictly casual lightweight vintage bike, what say you? Worth restoring? Cheap? Paperweight? Spill it already. :-)

    ISO: Lime Green drop tape

    Excellent: the one on the right is the one! And thanks for all this confirmation: after a couple of different attempts I thought I was losing my mind

    ISO: Lime Green drop tape

    My guess is the third one in from the right hand side is the lightest of the Schwinns, and will probably do the trick. The odd thing about this tape (both Schwinn and Hunt Wilde) the lime and campus look exactly the same with light behind. Only when it's on the bars do they appear different...
