cheap chinese bikes for cheap. which beats cheap chinese bikes with a brand name for $$$$.

edit: which is to say.... consider them a bicycle kit. I would want to true up the wheels, regrease all the bearings, etc etc. assuming that your friend can do that sort of wrenching, they are a good deal. catch-22 in that you can't try the frame sizes out for fit and feel.

Probably made in the same factories everyone else's stuff is made in. Performance is a big enough company to back it up.

Try also: pricepoint's house brand, November, Performance (going to be same/same as Nashbar but with different decals)

how'd you like to have to shift like this:

Loosen the QR, move the rod that changes gears, retighten QR, try not to pull the wheel out of the dropouts, repeat as necessary




From Campy's 80th Anniv page

Thanks Gumme! That is awesome.

I have a friend who basically has all the stuff from say late 60's through the early 90's. Full Colnogo funny bike full Campy. And a Campy 50th anny groupo to boot. I think that is on his Colnago America. Full set of Campy tools too. And the cork screw.

Of course.

Wink Velodromes

This month's "Bicycling" has an excellent article on "The Passion of the Velodrome". It's worth a read.

I've said it before - and my wife is well aware of my dream but if I were to come into a significant amount of money, the lottery for example, I'd build a velodrome and establish a program that would benefit both locals and visitors.

A velodrom in Phoenix would be a wok in the summer.
But, a cool idea. The little bit I got to play on the training center track was very cool.
