Ambrosio Super ElitePhilipR12/02/2016 03:35 AM
Purchased new in 1993 Super Elite Durex for touring, same label as pictured, Black, 36H, 20.5mm external width. Great rim still in use 2016. REALLY HARD to put Conti Gatorskin tyres on rim. Resort to 3 steel levers and much cursing
Mavic GP 4 (Red Label)bicycle196612/01/2016 11:05 AM
I am about as certain as I can be that these were based on a model called the Monthlery Pro, which was the same in all dimensions and weight, but came in a polished aluminum finish. So if someone wanted the same basic rim but with a polished finish, that would be the way to go. I know Mavic claimed that the hard anodizing made the rims stronger, but I'd be skeptical about how much difference that would make. The downside on the hard anodizing is that it begins to wear off the sidewalls under braking, and it never wears off evenly, so over time it starts to look pretty bad (at least to my eyes).
Hatta Swancloverleaf11/29/2016 03:47 AM
I have found it fitted (seemed OEM) in Dawes Galaxys and Dawes Londoner, both mid 80s. Quite upmarket bikes. In all cases the outer chrome wasn't in very good shape, pitted and rusted. However the bearing races were in excellent condition. After a service both headsets have performed excellently. I tend to upgrade them with loose ball bearings rather than caged ones. I would say that they were excellent headsets but the outer finish (whilst excellent when new) wasn't as durable as an equivalent Tange, for instance.
SunTour Pro-Compe (5-speed)Livefish11/28/2016 04:01 PM
The Pro-Compe 8.8.8 5-speed freewheel on my mid 1970 Motobècane Grand Record has cogs 14-15-17-19-21 and is marked "SK"
Dia-Compe SVX1989Pre11/27/2016 12:03 PM
I needed the left-side front, right-side rear cable entry for my classic British frame, so I bought these. Much lighter and stronger than my steel Phillips calipers!
Maillard Helicomaticchristrask11/25/2016 08:49 AM
I have a couple of bikes using the Helicomatic hub, a 1984 Motobecane Super Mirage and a 1984 Motobecane Grand Jubile. I have not experienced any trouble with these, and I have accumulated a good number of spare hubs and freewheels. I recently bough one at a bike swap that has the Maillard labyrinth seal, which I was not aware of.
Selle San Marco Concor Supercorsa Confortstingray11/22/2016 08:35 PM
Confort version of CONCOR Is the heaviest of the 3 versions of Supercorsa (Supercorsa Confort, Supercorsa and Supercorsa Superleggera-alloy rails-). This weight regarding std version in steel rails is due to an extra pad of 5 until 8 mm of thickness.
Clement Campionato del Mondo SetaDan the onZa man11/21/2016 08:41 PM
Hello to all, I'm 60 and was a Cat 1 racer in the late 70s & early 80s. All I used was 28mm fat Clement del Mundos, for training and racing when thin was in. Before I became a Cat-1 I raced 400cc prod motorcycles where I learned the value of wheel balancing, of which I always speed balanced my bike wheels. M/C Roadracing + Balance + 28mm wide tires I was one of the fastest descenders in the Southwest. Which brings me to this question about ZIPP doing wind tunnel testing on fat road tires doing well. Sure they get the results on a wind tunnel but do they ever bother to speed balance their wheels? If a wheel is out of rotational balance there is no way they can get the correct air tunnel results. Or do they just do the test in a static position? HUMMmmm, it makes me wonder.
SunTour a-20001989Pre11/21/2016 08:08 AM
Mine is from 1987 and I use it on a 4-speed Atom freewheel. I needed a reliable derailleur, that could take a 28T low gear, for my classic ride. Until I can find a Cyclo Mk 8, this will do just fine. Looks good, barrel adjuster, strong spring, wide range. You can't go wrong with Suntour. These are the earliest AccuShift derailleurs.
Campagnolo 0304, (Nuovo) Gran Sport (144 BCD)Wolfram Verktyg11/21/2016 05:15 AM
The original intention when Campagnolo introduced the Triomphe, Victory and Later C-Record components in the early 80's was to modernize the appearance of their whole product offering. Some Campy components retained the same basic designs going back in some cases to the 1950's. The Campy name was synonymous with competition and NR/SR components were available to that market until the late 1980's. Japanese competitors where constantly bringing out new products that appealed to the aesthetics of non-racing bike buyers. The new models were an attempt to recapture market share, especially on the mid price range bikes. Triomphe was supposed to replace the Nuovo GS gruppo. Victory, Nuovo Record and C-Record, Super Record. Most Campy buyers were tradition bound and the new designs were such a departure that Triomphe and Victory never really caught on. C-Record didn't become popular until the mid to late 80's when the availability of SR components dried up. Also the new components were priced considerably higher than N.G.S, NR and SR items.
