Longus Comp 2000 or Comp pro

Have you checked already are the brake sockets at the seat stays for an U-Brake?

It's hard to tell for sure from just looking at the pics (as opposed to handling the frame first-hand), but with that much rust on and near the bottom bracket, would it not make sense to strip/sandblast and repaint or powdercoat before rebuilding it? I realize it's a beautiful paint job and thus would be difficult to reproduce, but at some point doesn't it become a choice between style and safety?

I don't want to derail this thread, though, so perhaps that's a topic for another thread, i.e., "When is a good time to strip and re-coat?". Does anybody know of any agreed-upon safety benchmarks or tests that might dictate when that time, or rather, what that condition is? I've seen pics of frames here on RB that members have rescued in which rust had eaten holes in the BB. Obviously, you'd want to remedy the situation before it got that far.

Just wondering, thanks.

hi, hard to say from a picture without wheels or rims.
The u-brake is also a center pull brake and needs the holder, just the socket positions are different.
For u-brake they are on top of the rim, vs. for a regular cantilever brake they are below the rim. So there is a few centimeters difference.

I was just curious, who was it in his previous life, but i haven’t decided yet what will happen with it.

Hi everybody. I want to sell a nice pair of 26 wheelset with Mavic X22 rims.
Unfortunataly I don´t know which hubs are laced on it.
Any ideas ? (8spd, I guess form the 90´s).
