ratcheting shoe buckle compatibility?

Hello.  I've got a pair of Bontrager shoes (circa 2013) that are in great shape except the ratcheting buckle broke on one of the shoes.  I've looked online for replacements.  Trek doesn't have…Continue

8-speed, anyone?

Hello.  Looking for Shimano Dura Ace 8-speed downtube shift levers.  They would be from around 1992.  Grey-colored.  The left lever is spring-assisted and is offset from the downtube to facilitate one-handed shifting.  I know someone's gotta have a pair lurking in their archives somewhere.  Any old-time mechanics out there?  I know you guys are scavengers (I know, I used to be one).Also, Dura Ace non-STI aero brake levers.  They were made for a year or two max.  Anyone?  Anyone?  See More
