 I have some stutzman wood rims I want to build up.  Does anyone have a source for extra long nipples approximately 20mm in length for the build up?  Thank you in advance.

General discussions on Wheelmen topics. / Kirkpatrick saddle?

Was the Kirkpatrick saddle used on the Columbia and the Victor? 

Would like to purchase a reprint of the 1892 Victor catalog that Greg Barron was selling. 

Thank you for your help.

As I understand it the Victory was based on the Victor.  While comparing the Victor to the Victory I noticed the saddles were quite different.  The original Victor had horizontal single  coil springs  similar to a Columbia where as the Victory has vertical springs similar to the European design.  I have been told that the Victory seat is actually more comfortable than the Victor design.  I am curious though if it is possible to retrofit a Victor style seat on a Victory.  And if so has anyone reproduced the parts like they have for the Columbia’s.
Thank you in advance.

Title says it all. I would like to buy a 50” Victory, a Columbia or a Victor.  I am looking for a ridable  machine, not a project.   Thanks for looking.

Are any Wheelmen attending or participating in the Baraboo Circus parade on the July 20th?  I seem to recall some folks talking about it.

Would like to purchase a 50”  Victory reproduction.  Thank you in advance.

I am restringing my wife’s chain guard on her 1897 safety.   I just bought a new Stutzmans wheel shop bent wood chain guard.   I need recommendations on the best period looking string to use to restring it.
Thank you in advance.

Is anyone knowledgeable on the Model A coaster brake.  During the ride in Oberlin I applied standard braking pressure and the hub Loosened up and causing the wheel to wobble and was unable to finish..  Upon examination the cones had backed off.  So I thought there should be a thin locking nut on the cones to prevent this in the future.  That said after looking a numerous diagrams I do not see that ND provided any as manufactured.  So is this a common problem with Model A’s?  I want to ride my 1911 Iver is this correctable or should I replace the hub with a modern coaster brake I  so I can ride with complete confidence?   Inquiring minds need to know.   Thanks in advance.
