    Default Works in progress: what's on the bike stand today?

    I'll set the bar ridiculously high and lead with this. Don't try to top it, seriously what could be more awesome than a late 60's Raleigh Twenty in dangerous condition? Kidding about the bar bit. Please post pics. of some of your proud and not so proud daily fare. Nothing too boring or off beat for folks who dig seeing what the Pros are working on trust me on this.

    My addition is indeed a folding Raleigh 20. A soon to be former friend sent a nice lady to me saying something like "Josh and really nice and he can fix anything". The bike was about to come in half and the Sturmey Archer hub needed a light overhaul (badly gummed up but no miles to speak of). Main thing was nobody had given it any lovin' since forever and it would have been dangerous to ride.

    NFS cleaned up the rusty chain and the rest was easy. The Brits are so good at these things for instance the kickstand only works properly if you turn the wheel off to one side so that the trail dips the center lower. The release mechanisms are frightening but d@mn if they don't work just fine and the silly thing packs into a car trunk.

    OK I forgive you former friend because I really do love fixing things.

    Not a bike stand, but, a stand...

    I've been a Campagnolo junkie for 20+ years. This is my methadone.

    Busy week this week with Gavin away at Crankworx in Rotorua. It's amazing to see the level of events that little New Zealand is now able to attract.

    Getting these decals on correctly requires hours of time, by the way.

    Switching wheels around, I realized that it was sort of a pain to have two bikes, one with Campy 10 and the other with 11 speed stuff. I really like the Abbey Works Crombie tool, but I decided to see how cheaply I could switch over to 11 speed. Got Athena dérailleurs on sale, got a Chorus cassette on sale plus 10% for a special code, then bought a pair of Record replacement bodies with internals for about $140, again with one of those special codes. Cables I got with shifters I bought for a friend's bike. Bar tape I had just because I buy 2 when I need one out of habit. $350 total? Banged out the lever blade pin and switched the blades over, switched over the hoods, switched over the bar clamps, rigged it all up and it works great. Now I can switch wheels clincher tubular summer winter easy peasy.



    This Centaur's gone to eleven!

    Thanks Pixies.

    '88 Cannondale SR frame, one of the white ones. Paint's not too bad, considering it's 27 year old Imron. Degreased it, removed the nasty old chainstay protector, rubbed it down with laquer thinner, touched up the nicks by hand, then waxed and buffed her out.

    These old Cannondale frames...they're tough as nails, stiff in the rear triangle, great climbers. With the steel Tange fork, not as harsh as the later ones with the alloy forks.

    This one may get one of the new 5800 groups. Done a few of those on these '80's SR frames and they're pretty competitive for the local studs.

    My first road bike was an 88 or 89 SR500 with 105. Bought from John Wayne at Wayne Cyclery in Grand Island Nebraska. It was White with Hot Pink decals and tape. Loved that bike but the headset had a tendency to loosen up on rough roads. Still have it and may run it over to Spectrum some day for a refinish/restore.

    Trying to get caught up from the dock strike and the Nox rims shortage.

    Rims from Boyd and Nox. Hubs from Bitex, Industry Nine, Hadley, and some DT 240S.

    And I built a new work bench this weekend.
