    Frame building resources

    Thanx Cap. What a great idea. I have seen several Members be generous with their experience and those that are hungry to learn and not afraid to try. I have been loosely and haphazardly making notes but this thread will help us post successes and failures/mistakes (that will be me ;)). I see...

    What little info I have is the pic was pulled from a 1899 newspaper (name undisclosed). "These modern wheels may be Sterling, Spaulding or the Lyndhurst, Orient, or the Waverly, all carried by the Bennington Bicycle Co 1890s (Bennington Vermont)." I have a cyclist friend who grew up in Vermont...

    Very neat indeed! My 1st nice mtb was a C'dale with roller cam brakes, approx 1986-87 vintage (later got stolen in NM). In fact my favorite mtb still has roller cams which I feel work well the muddier and swampier the trail gets which is common here in north FL. My bike didn't have the 24/26...

    Assembly such as this is what I would have expected to see from a fork that is bent mid-steer tube. I am still trying to figure out how the steer tube could be bent without the forks being bent: poorly adjusted or loose head tube? Or crazy washers between fork crown and head tube??

    the I'll show you OFF TOPIC bike thread

    BTW, has anyone seen a 90degree elbow (or whatever) to shorten the length of valve sticking out on a tube??

    the I'll show you OFF TOPIC bike thread

    I wonder that if the inner valve on a schrader tube is removed, you might have a larger ID hole to put water/jell-o whatever into. Perhaps get an old Slime bottle to see if that works.....

    Hmmmm, narrow and lengthen the tractor seat. It already has enough of a back lip (perhaps) to look like a banana seat, and add a couple of matching holes in the back lip. Now that would be funky to see.......

    Thanx @ifitsfreeitsforme. Back in the day we had BMX, crusiers, MTBs, road bikes and (one of my favorites) cyclocross. I hadn't heard of gravel bikes 'till I got back into bikes. There were some gray areas with MTBs running 1 1/4" Specialized slicks and road/touring bikes w/ 700x32 knobby tires...
