I'm selling the OldRoads.com website.

I started the site in 1995 and sold my retail shop in April of this year.

I'm retiring from the bike business.

Here's a link to the eBay auction:

Any chance of listing this on Ebay? I'm fairly interested in it if it is the right size.

WANTED:   1970s Ross Barracuda posted by: Kaeley on 11/6/2011 at 5:33:18 PM
I'm looking for a early 1970s Ross Barracuda. My dad had one when he was younger and I was hoping to buy one for him. It could be in good shape or bad shape (it would be fun to fix one up together).

I'm located in NC....hopefully there is one nearby or one that could be shipped to me.

MISC:   New forum software? posted by: Vin - Menotomy Vintage Bicycles on 11/4/2011 at 4:55:33 PM
I wrote the software for these Discussion Areas over 10 years ago.
At the time I thought that having a place where you don’t need to register or login, but could just post a question or post an answer, was the way to go. But when it comes to posting pictures and maintaining continuity in a conversation I see this model lacking.
Here at OldRoads our stats are at the highest they’ve ever been. So maybe this is the time to buy some forum software and have forum contributors have their own logins. On other forums I visit, I like to be able to search for replies to my posts and to upload photos easily.
What are your thoughts or recommendations?

-Vin

Update.
Thank you for your feedback here and via email.
We've purchased more server space and software for a new forum and are in the process of setting it up.
The rest of our site will not be changed – we’re just upgrading the Discussion Areas.
The hard part will be trying to put the 200,000+ messages from the old forum into the new forum, if that is even possible.

There will be a "Guest" mode which works as this forum does today – you can be totally anonymous – you can post messages, etc without logging in.
But you can also register and use your own account, easily find old conversations, maintain a profile, etc.
And there will be full picture hosting. No need to have an account on photobucket or snapfish or anywhere else.

-Vin

The following message is an excerpt from an anonymous posting to rec.bike.tech several years ago. The story is filled with insider references to the arguments that went on there. It deserves, like its subject, to be remembered more often than once a year.
If you'd like the whole thing, email me and I'll reply it.

Patrick, Did you look at Sheldon Brown's Bianchi picture (the 'nanodrive" link)? if you don't know about Jobst Brandt and the description of how tensioned wheels "stand on their bottom spokes" you should look it up - since Sheldon died, John Allen has added some commentary about "Professor Abrandt Van Wheelsing".

Oh, and I didn't write this stuff, it just tickles me. Sheldon Brown had a wicked sense of humor.

...I asked aloud, "How did he go bad?"
"Spoke-squeezing," said the tall man reluctantly.
"Not to be rude," I lied, "but don't you--"
"Yes," came the sad reply, "but I squeeze spokes by hand only to relieve stress. He squeezed spokes, too, but not by hand as God intended--he used unholy tools!"
"Tools?" I asked, intrigued.
"Some say that he used old cranks to twist his spokes to evil purposes, believing that his choice of semi-aero oval spokes would let him stop before he went too far. Others say that he was depraved from the beginning. But whatever he did, his spokes became immortal--at a fearful cost!"
http://www.sheldonbrown.com/wheelbuild.html
"You mean--"
"His rims anodized overnight--he no longer casts a reflection in them. And . . ."
"What?"
"I hardly dare speak it, but his wheels--his wheels--"
A long silence ensued, finally broken by a horrified whisper:
"They hang from the upper spokes--like bats!"

WANTED:   40h Coaster Hub posted by: Paul Calder on 10/23/2011 at 10:51:20 AM
I'm fixing up a beautiful Indonesian becak, much like an Indian rickshaw with two wheels in front and one in the rear driving the thing. The rear wheel was a fixed hub without a reverse-threaded lockring and has stripped out. I would like to replace it with a coaster to augment the somewhat awkward rod braking system but I want to salvage the original rim and can't find a 40h coaster hub anywhere! Does anyone have one around they could sell me?
Thanks,
Paul

I'm wondering if the hubs from a 70something Schwinn Twinn were 40h. Gary? Anybody? I have a pair that need rims; the original rims rusted out. I'll try to locate them. The coaster brake is a Bendix. They also had the big fat spokes, and might be well suited.
