Dear Cyclofiend:

I found this 1987 Bridgestone Mile 112 road bike at the Golden West College swap meet where I probably paid too much as I later found out the rear rim was not repairable. Anyway, I got a good price on a pair of unclaimed Mavik rims already set up for a single speed at our LBS in Long Beach. We swapped the Biopace chainring for a 39x16 freewheel combination that is working great for my son Peter at hilly UC San Diego, bartered for a used Bianchi saddle/SR seat post, chopped and flipped the handlebars, Forte campus pedals, new brake handles/cables and decided to keep the original paint for now. It's a speedy lightweight ride that is getting a workout around La Jolla.

Your site has proved highly informative and inspired my new hobby: bike repair. Love looking at the all the vintage bikes that have been restored to good use.

Thanks for everything.
