I live for the CABE
Beautiful bikes! I've always been a Raleigh guy, but these are very appealing! Are they really smooth riders? Comfortable? Great quality?

Like I said in a separate Post on the Blue PX-10, that's the bike that got me into bikes 30 years ago. Who knew! :p

I Collect and ride nearly everything I find that I like. Its gotten to the point where I now enjoy bringing them back to life as much, if not more, than riding them. Eye candy, if you will. Part of it is the challenge to see how much I can do to a bike that appears lost, or just to have something I don't see often or I know is rare...especially if it's my size. :tonguewink:

Some interesting history behind those DuPont delrin (acetal) derailleurs. I understand the material is strong under compression but not in tension which is in effect what it is in clamp area if FD. I believe Simplex was using delrin starting in 1962. Surprised they had not discovered these issues by early 70’s. Would love to hear from those of you “that were there.”

It's rare to see one of the FD's not cracked over time.
The FD on the U08 I gave my father's neighbor was still good, and the bike was my size, but the paint wasn't up to what I deemed good enough to keep. If it was an old Prewar bike that would have been different. But on a Road bike from this time period, I want it in much nicer condition. I'm a Paint Snob, lol!!

Very nice thank you Roger!
Those lugs look just like the one on my ‘82/83 Bertin C37 I just got from Verktyg over on Bikeforum. But tell me, if there were delrin failures any idea why they kept producing even a decade plus after starting in ‘62?
thanks, Steve

regarding Lucien -

have no idea why he stayed with Delrin so long

intransigence is one of the traits which contributed to the collapse of the nation's cycle industry

Thank you Roger on lug ID (sorry Fred did not mean to divert your thread) ; never cease to amaze me with your ability to identify the most minute of details. Intransigence is good word to describe what happened. Read that later Juy had more steel and Aluminum but by then damage was done. I love the ‘62 blue and yellow Simplex logo. If I recall some Pugs had this color combo.

Juy development of new lines/products -

when the SLJ gear ensemble launched in 1973 it was an instant hit and deservedly well repsected

unfortunately, its cost at the consumer retail level was even greater than that of the Tullio NR ensemble :eek:

Well, this is as far as I'll take this one. (My third floor Bat Cave is getting to crowded lately). Going in I knew the frame was WAY to short...but I couldn't pass it up. Another "Toy" to play with. Front derailleur is toast, and the rear needs new cogs as the teeth are all gone.

This will eventually be going to a new home, but I'll wait to see if I get one in my size locally first. I'd like to keep the saddle when it does go, though, because of its condition. Time will tell... :)
