I didn't realize 12=27.
You learn something new each day.

Also, I would love to see someone racing a hybrid "ON TRack".

I feel like an asshole jackass. I sold a conversion for 450 with cyclecross tires.
for my defense I needed to buy school books for next semester.

The person who bought it is the jackass, you are maybe kinda an asshole for selling it but I don't think anyone here is gonna hate you for it.

I still say that other spencer is a reasonable conversion, expensive but reasonable. this is more the Chicago style

I hate when people note that they spent something like $300 when they did nothing to increase the value of their bike

vintage campagnolo is expensive.

That's not vintage.
That's junk.
I have that deraileur. It sucks.
edit: mine is probably in too poor condition to be of any value to a vintage parts fetishist.

thats kind of a shitty thing to do to a vintage spencer in that good of a condition, but i actually think it looks really nice.

To play devil's advocate, running it fixed could actually be considered period-correct, since lots of people rode fixed back then.
