Show we what y'all got! I'm mostly looking for an old steel frame with a 1" threaded fork. Preferably something lugged. Ratty but still road worthy is kinda the goal. But a GTB,...

well, lightweight commuters are real nice, racing isn't the only place you should be concerned about weight. esp if you have to lug your bike into/out of your house every time y...

^ that won't fix anything here. it's 25.4mm in diameter on the insertion side. it's meant for 1-1/8" set-ups, not a 1" set-up, which is what OP's dealing with.

longer bb spindle is the easy way. it'll throw off your chainline a bit though. if you can find an adjustable ISO taper bottom bracket that's the better solution. that way yo...

grip nut might also work, or do some research on lower stack height threaded headsets.

Fork cut too short, can't fit full headset on!

get a flat crown lugged fork, they're literally the best looking fork style. find a used one with the right steerer length on njs-export and have it powder coated black. Probabl...

ISO taper cranks on a JIS taper bb. You could ride it, but it'll trash the taper on those cranks, you'll only be able to ride 'em on JIS bb's in the future. I'd say look for a 1...

Depends. Fizik Microtex (now called Superlight, I believe) looks wicked awesome, is nice and grippy, and I love the texture. But it's lacking in the padding department, and does...

IMO the paint looks a lot better than most modern bike's paint, but I'm not a huge fan. It's not an integrated post, it's just an ENVE post topper welded onto a seat mast. It's ...
