    Tubular spoke tension too low? Fix it if it's not broken?

    I'm fixing up a bike that has been standing for about 40 years. It was left almost unused shortly after its original purchase. I haven't been able to go for more than a slow spin around the block, because the old tubulars were crusty and bulging, but the wheels seem to be true (Wolber Champion...

    1993 Marin Pine Mountain

    Here is my recently aquired Pine Mountain. I use it on a regular basis. It's in good well kept condition, with mostly original compontents (stem and obviously the fork and jockey wheels), and with some patina. I especially like the purple spoke nipples, however they don't really show in this...

    1994 Lava Dome seat post. 27.0 or 27.2?

    That’s interesting to hear. How tight is the fit? I don’t force the post, but I have to put some weight on it to make it sink.

    1994 Lava Dome seat post. 27.0 or 27.2?

    Re: Thanks. You’re probably right. What confuses me is the document with ‘Kona basic frame specs 1988 to 1999’ here on retrobike that states the 94 lava to be 27.2

    1994 Lava Dome seat post. 27.0 or 27.2?

    Found somewhat contradicting info regarding the seatpost diameter of 94 Konas. Is it 27.0 or 27.2mm? The 27.0 post sinks as soon as I loosen the bolt and release the post. The 27.2 post goes down far enough with some pressure. But I have a nagging fear, am I doing harm to the frame..? What do...

    Colnago C40 1999

    Re: As a teenager in the nineties, I was into mountain bikes. But when visiting a friend’s house shortly before the end of the last millennium, I saw his father’s brand new road bike sitting on display in the middle of their living room, a brand new Colnago, all high gloss carbon fibre with...

    Colnago C40 1999

    One of the most striking bikes of all time is the colnago C40, the bike that started the carbon-fibre revolution. This bike was the first ever carbon bike to compete in the infamously hard Paris-Roubaix back in -95, when Franco Ballerini rode his C40 to victory, first time win for a carbon bike...
