    Lovely 1930s Wanderer restoration video

    An impressive restoration of this old beauty. Some fantastic solid engineering in that old gearbox too.

    Specialized Future Shock installation

    I guess because its not being clamped by the stem as normal it doesn't matter.. The lower part of the shock assembly presumably acts like a tall compression plug that pushes out on the inside of the steerer tube, mostly below the slotted section. Well made video on setting up this system and...

    I recently inherited my granddad's scrapbook from the late 30s/early WW2 period. It has plenty of photos of motor racing and military aircraft (he was an RAF fitter and a lifelong F1 fan), but also a few pages of cycle racing scraps he collected. This thread seemed like a good spot to post some...

    Retro/Classic brakes for a tour.

    Your main options for quality, well performing deeper drop caliper brakes are TRP RG 957s, Velo Orange's Grand Cru calipers and Shimano BR 451s. RG 957s are excellent from many thousands of miles of personal experience! They are all (as far as I know) for modern top hat style Allen fittings...

    Wanted Friction shifter washers

    Hi folks, I bought some of these old Ofmega shifters recently, mint but sadly missing the washers shown in red in the image below. I think they are very similar to some Campag and possibly Dia Compe shifters of the time, so if anyone has any of the keyed thin washers or the others in your parts...

    Bump! I've got some of these now but still after a front derailleur. Also Ofmega hubs, a BB and a headset, although I don't think they exist as Premier, so let me know what you have. 😉

    Opera Leonardo 2003 (i think)

    I like it a lot, nice build. Some deeper section carbon rims with some nice silver Hope/King hubs would look stunning on it. 😜

    Dave Hinde/Brian Rourke - 90's Campagnolo

    More great work, and beautifully documented in your photos. 👍 I really rate Lasers, my last wheel build uses them and I have tens of thousands of trouble free miles riding various wheelsets with them now. I'm in total agreement on using brass nipples too. 😄
