    I have that same frame pump at home. Never thought about painting it to match. Weekend project.

    Vintage road bike thread!!



    1989 Centurion Ironman.
    My vintage roadie I picked up as a reentry to road biking. I remembered seeing them back in the day when I was graduating high school. Still down tube shifters and during the introduction to Index shifting.
    Still fun to ride, but I've ungraded my roadie and now the Ironman spends most of its time attached to my trainer, but I still take it out one in a while.
    (This picture is a few years old, I don't know what I was doing with the saddle like that)

    ^So does it get orangier, the lower you get??^

    Colker, I thought Columbine for a moment, but their lug work is different looking, at least what I've seen.

    Focus on the frame building skill, not the lugs themselves, which are uncharacteristic for this conservative frame builder.

    Mendon,


    Yes, it gets plenty orange at the bottom (creamsickle?)


    I've been looking for a 54cm road frame I could afford for quite a while...pretty stoked to have his one:

    It's not for everyone. But there are not all that many frame builders that can pull something off like this, so you have to admire that regardless.

    Not Steve. The builder is definitely a lug guy, but not a fancy, frilly lug guy. Knowing that the customer wasn't going to ride it much, he was willing to build a bike like this. That seat lug screams "break me!"

    Not Tom. I'm not sure anyone could talk Tom into something like this. Way too impractical.

    For the record, the bike was built in the 70s and the aero cable routing for both brakes and derailleurs was added in the 80s.

    Was thinking Weigle or Peter Johnson, but Gordon had some lug details that sort of matched your frame.

    uh...Bilenky used to win that category multiple times? Dinucci won it the past few years. That doesn't look like a Bilenky frame so I'll go with Dinucci.

    Since DC said I need to get this one and Bilenky is Philly based, and his first name is Stephen, I'm going to say he is spoon feeding me on this one, lol.


    Just noticed the top lug on the headtube doesn't even have a full ring...pretty, but a bit scary too.

    GOB has it with Mark A Dinucci, only he never does bikes with bikini lugs and ornate stuff like this. Special customer, special bike, a long time ago.

    Like the style or not, that's some fine craftsmanship.

    Cool.

    Thanks for the full pic DC. What is going on with the front brake? Looks funky.


    Congrats GOB, remind me to never bet against you even when it seems like a sure thing.

    I think the front brake is just a DA 7400 side pull. Angle might make it look different.

    Sort of finished up the Tesch today...

    I have a better front wheel in the works, but got tired of tinkering with it and wanted to go for a ride today, so mismatched wheels, but pure fun.

    I know a few of you guys are familiar with Andy Gilmour:



    (updated with better pics)




    Always had the goofy idea I wanted to try an 80's "funny bike", and when I saw this one in need of rescuing it was a done deal.

    Just curious if any of you guys have ever seen a front hub that narrow before....it only measures 69mm between the fork drops.

    Sheldon Brown lists a 70mm front hub as "Birdy, Breezer Itzy." (Sheldon Brown's Bicycle Frame and Cassette Spacing Crib Sheet) Unfortunately I have no idea what that actually means.

    Likely it was done to make the bike more aero. It probably is not the best bike for taking high-speed turns on.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    No kidding. And radial laced? It looks good, but I wouldn't trust it in a turn under my weight.

    I doubt it's all that bad when you consider a 100mm disc brake front hub, and how far the disc side's flange is pushed in. If the disc side flange is pushed in 15mm, that side's spokes aren't any worse than this one. Just don't know how well I'd trust them laced radially to not rip the flange apart. I guess steel is real.

    Thanks EL, I saw that too and wondered the same thing...it's definitely an oddball, and it was one of the reasons I brought the bike home.



    watts888, judging by the heavenly indexed headset bearings, I'm guessing it has spent most of its life pointing straight ahead.




    I emailed Andy Gilmour...hoping he remembers it.

    1985 Bridgestone 600

    I was just given this 1985 Bridgestone 600 from my LBS owner. I think a weird customer gave it to him (I met the guy) and it has been sitting in his back yard since then (year maybe)? Luckily it is a California bike so the rust wasn't bad...

    Anyway, as far as I can tell, it is nearly all original. The rear wheel was missing, and I think it had a cheap BMX saddle. Otherwise, all there. All I did was pull my wheels off my commuter, piece together a 7 cog cassette just as a trial, and replace the cables (never bother testing the old ones). So far I've been commuting over a week on it and have well over 100 miles. I'll probably do 100 or so miles tomorrow on it.

    Original Suntour DT friction shifters connected to a Cyclone derailleur. Original brakes (probably original pads!).

    I haven't fully decided on what I am going to do with it. What I will upgrade, what I will leave alone. But in the very least I will keep everything so I can return it to original. I've got most of a 105 Groupo in the garage, but I like how smooth the Suntour works and I don't need all the gears, I haven't even used the small chainring yet other then testing it. I'll swap the bars out with some I have in the garage with some other levers to hide the cables and make the bike look better.

    This vintage Ernie Clements Falcon Super Route (aka San Remo 92 model), year unknown (late 70's), was given to me for free, in near mint condition.

    So far it rides like a dream. As the saddle position shows, a size smaller would have been perfect, but I can stand flat-footed over the top tube with just minimal nut grazing. The handlebar reach is fine.

    Reynolds 531 straight gauge tubing; Shimano Titlist derailleurs; unknown Campy DT shifters and front hub; Sugino Super Maxy crank; Weinmann rims and center-pull brakes; MKS Sylvan Touring pedals. (I added a cheap Planet Bike saddle).

    Sorry for the very crappy photos

    That looks nice. I have a mid 70's Raleigh of similar quality, but it isn't anywhere near this clean. Fun to ride though.

    I have nothing but good things to say about my Brompton if this was a multimodal proof of concept, rather than an end play.

    There was a guy in So. VT. years ago that had a garage full of Falcons in boxes. He was a friend of the Gioves and had given one to Missy and she brought it by the shop to get tuned up and I ended up getting rid of a few of them for him. This is before Missy had a mtb which I got her hooked up with through my WSI rep, a Nishiki Alien. The rest as they say is history.
    A bike by any other name is still a bike.

    I really dont think Ross gets enough credit for the many fully-proper bikes hes added to the world.

    10/10. Would store in bedroom and grab in the event of a fire before yearbooks, etc. without hesitation.

    Peugeot PX10

    I got the bike from a friend no decal at all but he knew it is a Peugeot. I restored in about 6 years ago, put new decals.

    I am not an expert in bike, from my research I think it is a 1970 PY10 or PX10.

    It has a simplex sign at the rear fork, a metal serial number at bottom bracket tube. It has a stronglight 93 crankset.

    That's all I know

    Word is those 70s peugeots ride very well. Peugeot had a racing shop and the ones coming from there are said to be some of the best road bikes ever made.

    The latest iteration of my 1988 Cannondale Criterium.

    I bought this frame new in 1990 from a dealer blowing out the Klein lawsuit Cannondale frames for $100.

    Vintage road bike thread!!-1988-cannondale_2020-1.jpg

    It started out with Dura Ace 7400 components.
    It now sports a somewhat unusual mix of parts.
    Crank is an Ultegra 6500 triple 30/38/48 with Dura Ace 7400 pedals.
    The rims are H+Son TB14's to Dura Ace 7700 hubs.
    The freehub body is from an XT FH-M732 UG/HG 7 speed with a 14-34 HG cassette but, replaced the 14t with a threaded UG 14t.
    Derailleurs are XTR M900/910.
    Shifters are Dura Ace 7401 with alternate cable routing for the XTR RD.
    Cinelli bars.
    7400 non-aero brakes.
    WTB Pure V saddle.

    The build wasn't just a hodgepodge of stuff I had. It was pretty purposefully built.

    TB14's are very similar to my old MA40's. The 7700 hubs were part of the wheel set, but fit what I wanted.

    XTR 900's are basically wide range vintage Dura Ace derailleurs. I ran 74xx for a number of years and the shifting is the same with the XTR.

    7401 shifters have a offsetting spring in the left shifter.

    Ultegra 6500 triple because Dura Ace 7700 uses a chainring spider which can be the kiss of death for replacements. And I can use a 7700 triple BB.

    Fitting the XT freehub body was a stroke of fate and allows me to run a 126mm OLD. The wheelset actually sat for 5 years. I brought it out during the pandemic and started fiddling.

    The rest was already there.

    Road bikes should not be style accessories nor even an athlethic tools only. Road bikes are the most functional and versatile bikes out there. Its the best long distance machine and thats why not all road bikes should be tall geared huge saddle to bar drop clones of TDF machines fit for cat1 racers. Your build is perfect for a ride everywhere machine.
