Man, I love bicycle swap meets!
Who knows what treasures will get unearthed? Or what bargains? This morning, five bucks got me a Silca Imperio frame pump with Campy head, Zefal hp X4 – both in very good working and cosmetic condition – a pair of vintage bottle cages – a REG and something else, a decent Concor Supercorsa saddle, and a bike stand. A friend drove home with an early Trek in his size, outfitted in excellent condition Superbe Pro, Tange HS, and Campy hubs for $75. Not a bad thirty minute shopping spree!
Right now, though, it’s time to be heading out the door on my freshly built International, now resplendent in IGH configuration. The past two days have been rainy and cold. As busy as I’ve been curating the current exhibition, my rides have been short and negligible. Today, it’s time to give this build a decent shakedown ride in the country.
