|after: 21 lbs.|
|before: 38 lbs.|
As often occurs, I found this guy lurking in Ira's pile o' bikes in the breezeway (he had bought it from some auction I guess). Starting weight was 38 lbs., finishing weight is 21 and change. Kept the cool original cranks, but subtracted a chainring and pantguard. Also kept the original headset, stem, and (much to my irkedness) the retarded and ugly steel 24mm frenchie seatpost (try finding a 24mm aluminum one, they're rare birds).
- SyCip wonderbar
- Velocity purple deep-Vs/Formula hubs/freewheel
- DiaCompe extra long-reach front brake
- Cannondale (Tektro) long-reach rear brake
- Terry butterfly seat
- Oury grips
|Final final build, with new Blackburn rack (fits Rhode Gear kid seats perfectly)|
This old Peugeot is now surprisingly fun to ride, with its super upright position and relaxed everything. Once I add a rack and/or basket, it'll be a useful farmer's market getup/ironic hipster machine.
