    We added a new Roll to the fleet this summer. I kept thinking about buying myself a second Specialized, used, as a project bike, but I am now leaning more towards upgrading my primary bike to carbon fiber (probably one of the Sirrus Carbon models) and using my Crosstrail Disc as the spare. The clunky old Schwinn steel frame has to go. ;) I didn't mind cleaning up the Crossroads Sport for my daughter, but these days I don't want to be screwing around messing with a bike--I just want to ride.

    Checking back in with some pics of the 1975-76 Raleigh Super Course I picked up a while back. I finally got around to working on it again and finished it up this week. It is a nice ride for sure and I am surprised at how smoothly the Huret derailleurs shift.

    Now that`s a classy classic ! :)
    Are those Huret Jubilee (or Titlist ?) derailleurs and Mafac center-pulls ?

    Thanks man, appreciate the compliment. The derailleurs are Challenger and the brakes are Weinmann. It's unfortunate that the Brooks saddle was gone, but that's par for the course.

    This is the era I used to repair bikes in Iowa City. Always liked this bike, easy to adjust and a smooth ride. I remember I found a used one at the time in '79 and bought for the girlfriend.

    Picked up a pretty nice (albeit faded) 1987(?) Schwinn Circuit with the Shimano Sante groupset last year that I am currently restoring. I'm not even done putting it back together yet and I've already gotten two offers for it!

    This is my gas pipe special, Trek 830. It's a dump rescue. New seat, rack, bottle cage, grips, pedals, tires, & chain, it's my good weather duffer bike. The paint is like new -
