    A Carlton that is not what I expected

    I was lured a few miles out of town today to look at a bike that was described over the phone by the wife of the owner as a "blue Carlton 10-speed". Oh, boy.

    I bought an old blue Carlton Raleigh Grand Prix yesterday so I figured - why not? The bike I saw today has the Carlton crest with the crown on it and CARLTON CYCLES CANADA and it fit me perfectly so I bought it for $25 to hop around on for the winter. Is this company still in business ?? I did a search on the internet and found nothing about Carlton Cycles Canada. There was a little tool pouch on the bike with a little blue booklet in it congratulating the buyer for buying "the world's most famous bicycle." Really.
