Would people in here be interested in a thread where we post ebay links to bicycles/parts of a valley wheeler nature?
If so I will start.

I know some of us trawl thru ebay and other sites looking for vintage bike stuff regularly. Would be nice to have a few interesting links posted out.

Nice...

Haven't got an Equilateral. It's on my list of bikes to eventually obtain, along with an Arabesque (or possibly a Regal). Unfortunately (thankfully) this one is too big for me. Nice to see it is properly appointed with correct parts, and not unreasonably priced for such a rare frame.

Nope. The gusset is not UCI legal. Neither is having a 650C wheel in front, when the back wheel is a 700C.

That Genesis has had a hard life. There is not much left in those wheels. Looks like the braking surface is almost worn through. First long descent, and a rim would split I reckon. Aluminium frames also don't live forever. I'll buy a rusty steel frame, but I won't buy an aluminium frame that's more than 5 years old. That Genesis is about 18 years old.

Thanks Shrubb. So it's not a "custom made" frame. It's a bog standard frame. The seat tube and top tube lengths quoted by the seller involve creative measuring techniques...

Hey does anyone know if any of these steel frames would have sufficient clearance for cyclocross tyres or be strong enough for that purpose? I am hopeful on getting a lugged steel touring bike that doubles as a cyclocrosser. Thanks in advance.

ummm
i believe a 27" would have enough clearence to be a cross bike, and lugged steel will be strong enough for sure. but just like newer bikes, you can't just say lugged steel, i have 3 different lugged steel bikes (all 48cm frames) with varying wheel clearence and toe overlap, so it really depends.
all i can say steel will be heaps better than old alloy or carbon (both have short working lives)

Some will and some won't. High-end road racing bikes almost certainly won't. Mid range ones might. Low end ones (probably) will.

A 27" frame will have enough clearance if 700C wheels are used, but in my experience you get limited choice of brake calipers which have long enough reach to do the job.

Cyclocross bikes have v-brakes, not road bike calipers, because too much mud gets thrown up into road calipers to make the system reliable.

I would suggest having a look at some of the flat bar road bikes going around at the moment. They have V-brakes, bosses for attaching pannier racks and mudguards, and plenty of clearance for fat tyres. If you change the handlebars and brake levers you can convert it into a tourer/cyclocross on the cheap. Bundy has bikes in the "Jamis Coda" series and "Orbea Carpe" series starting at under $600. Perfect for touring, commuting, and modifying for CX!

If you want to take cyclocross seriously you're going to need a proper cyclocross bike, with shifter cables that run along the top tube, but these won't have touring and mudguard rack bosses, so it's probably not going to be ideal.

Some of you may have heard me talking about one of my "projects" down at the café on occasion. The project in question is my Colnago Master Chrono TT. Well, here's a nice example of one.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 0714259674

Alas, mine isn't currently in the same condition. It can be viewed at Peter Bundy's shop as it waits for the right repair to restore it to its former glory.

In the meantime, this will be interesting to watch, to see what my investment could potentially be worth. (Although mine is ready to be draped in C-Record, rather than DA).

So John, that derailleur should be listed in the Campagnolo No 15 catalogue then?

According to that timeline, the Valentino was introduced the next year (1964) so I would say the Valentino replaced the "CAMPAGNOLO". The Valentino was a pretty crummy deraileur, despite its lovely red nut highlights. It looks like it belongs on low-end Raleighs with those red nuts.

I'm trying to work out what is... Clearly not a Valentino, and not a typical Gran Turismo either. Any ideas anyone?

Oh dear...

Drop bars on a funny bike? (Well, technically, it's only a half-funny, since all the tubes are straight. Funny bikes are supposed to have at least one curved tube, which is usually the top tube.) And a snowflake front wheel? Way to ruin a pretty decent frame! Appalling spelling everywhere can't do much for the attractiveness of his ad. Still, no major harm done to the frame.

Tubing looks like Columbus Air to me. Wonder if it uses the teardrop seatpost. If the seatpost is round the frame is late 80s. If it's teardrop, it's early 80s. My guess would be pretty close to 84. That's when 24 inch front wheels were popular, thanks to the LA Olympics.

Funny bikes were banned in 1997, not mid 80s. Even this kid should have been alive then...

Too big for you, Lizanne. Plus, those older frames don't have the same geometry as modern frames. They have a much shallower seat tube angle, and usually a similar slope to the forks. This makes them less twitchy than modern track bikes. Bad for track riding, especially on banked tracks. Potentially good for riding on the road as a fixie, but who really wants to drill out a perfectly good track fork...

Still... Worth it for the parts!

Cyclemondo is selling a pile of NOS vintage Duegi shoes, some with cleats. I'm thinking of buying a pair of the . Anyone know what the difference between the different model numbers?

Also, anybody else want to buy a pair and share the postage?

John, if your feet were smaller, you would get a very good deal from "Glensprocket" on Ebay on the UK.

Unfortunately, the sizes are all around 40 or so.

Happy hunting.
