Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
Well, the Aubisque went off to its new owner today - a good mate of mine who will greatly enjoy it as a part-time commuter. Sadly, after having ridden it a few times since the rebuild, I realised that it just wouldn't stretch out enough for me, despite the long stem and high seatpost, it was a little bit too cramped.
I know it will be looked after and will be used, so it is far better for that to occur, than simply have it hanging up in my shed.
Hello my friend,
congratulations on your beautiful work.
I have the exact same bike in blue and I actually bought her in blue.
Could you give me some hints since I am new in the repairing hobbies. What do I use to remove the pedals and the central movement in this type of old bike?
G'day mate. You'll need a 14mm pedal wrench to take the pedals off. To remove the freeplay in the crank itself may require a bottom bracket replacement or rebuild. I never actually touched mine as it was okay.
cheers and good luck!
