Title: Bikes seen out and about
Post by: hubner on August 10, 2019, 09:18:48 pm
A pink Mercier, maybe 70s, with Mafac Racer centrepulls, Simplex front changer, Ideale saddle.

It seems the forum resizes the pics, click on copy and paste the link for full size.

Condor Paris bike, I think the "Path" model, anyway it's a modern conventional frame except for partial "bi-lam" lugs/sleeves on the head tube, not the funny Galibier model which is what Paris frames are known for.

£1,300 for an Italian built off the peg frame (fixed geometry in 3cm frame size increments)!

A flat plate is better for mounting a rear rack though, like this Raleigh roadster.

Rod brakes, steering lock, dynohub hub gear, chaincase.

I had one similar to that when I was about 15! Except mine was black, had lost its chaincase (maybe I removed it) and was a Philips. Given it by an elderly neighbour. The bike must have been at least twice, quite likely three times, as old as I was. Quite fun to ride, except when I wanted to stop at the roundabout at the bottom of Farmhill Lane, for instance.

Title: Re: Bikes seen out and about
Post by: hubner on October 08, 2019, 03:50:06 pm
It's purely a personal aesthetic preference. I like the curve to start lower down the fork blades, not halfway. Then the bend should be a smooth continuous curve to the dropouts, without becoming noticeably straight again.

The pink Mercier in the first post is sort of an example but it does become straight just above the dropout.

The Zieleman and Gazelle and the blue unknown frame has the bend lower down but it's a sharp bend and then straightens out.

This bikes seems to only have a coaster brake. Note the forks.

looks like most of these bikes were rescued from a skip. which is a positive feature for a hack bike in london; you want it to be undesirable in order to still find it after leaving it on the street. it needs to function properly though (decent brakes, oiled chain etc.).

It seems the forum resizes the pics, click on copy and paste the link for full size.
Max forum picture dimensions are 640px in either direction.  In the FAQ, we ask people NOT to post larger photos, but to resize them to 640 first and link them to a larger one if required.

Yes, 640 is small but we did have a good think about this and it was after the days of dial-up, before anyone asks.  1024 doesn't work well on phone screens but the main issue is that, with tens of photos on a gallery page being pulled from numerous different servers, it gets slow even on broadband and, on mobile, it eats into data allowances very fast if they're all 3MB.

I agree some people are too lazy and upload huge pics straight from their camera unedited but I reduce to 1600x1200 (average about 400kb), or smaller like 1200x900. For pics where there's no need to zoom in to look at details, I'll go even smaller.

I thought the forum just shows them smaller, without actually reducing the dimensions and file size.

Right click and "view image info" on a pic in this thread gives something like:

Size: 426.8 KB
Dimensions: 1,600px × 1,200px (scaled to 640px × 480px)

Doesn't the pic come from the image host (eg Imgur) direct to your device?

Also it seems you can see the pics in a bigger size up to the original uploaded size by zooming in the web page (ctrl +), certainly bigger than 640x across, the text will get bigger as well.

No always lazy, sometime just computer-impaired.  I've committed this crime while touring in the past, and subsequently replaced the images with scaled ones when I got back.

That's my understanding.

Furthermore, hiding them behind a spoiler tag (which might seem to be a reasonable compromise) doesn't actually prevent them loading.

They are (or were, I don't know if they are still in existance but probably are) a cycle shop in or near Poitiers. I thought they bought in frames to put their name on (rather like some of the late Jourdes kicking around  Limoges, the genuine ones have Mercel's initials on the seat stays; the later ones were after he retired)

The state of that hood doesn't look consistent with rigorous maintenance.  And on closer inspection, the brake cable appears to suggest the bars have done a full rotation, so maybe they spent some time in the now legendary "DUI bars" position?

Weird for the sake of weird spoke pattern, I don't know the know the name. I found a pic of 3 pulling/3 pushing that is similar but these are 2 pulling/2 pushing .

Both brake QR are up.

What happened to the Itera's saddle? Stolen, I suppose. Many years ago, Mrs Cudzo and I were walking along the street we lived on when a car went past with a blue bike on its roof. She was instantly taken with the bike and when the car serendipitously stopped just up the road, she talked to the people and bought the bike. It was not an Itera, though it was something unusual with a strange frame in two halves (left and right, but metal thankfully), but I think its plastic wheels were like the Itera's.

I've used one on at least 1 bike since the 90's and havent noticed any change.  The price put me off buying for 2 of my newer bikes last year. I guess I can get on OK with different saddles.

I'm not into mountain bikes at all (don't even like them), however, here's a Muddy Fox Courier.

Vitus 992 frame with Campagnolo Chorus chainset. As for the "lock"...I know.

This saddle was my all round favourite when I was racing in the late 80's, early 90's. I tried one recently, it was horrible. Either they are not what they used to be, or my bum has changed of shape in the mean time :(

That chain/lock is wishful thinking at best.
