    Decals, not daughters...

    try http://www.hlloydcycles.com/

    I bought some last year and they winged their way from UK to NZ promptly, and I was very satisfied. They are on the BSA in my Avatar.

    ETA: As an aside, I find it interesting that the father of a son got ripped on because of supporting prevailing stereotypes, yet all of the fathers of daughters on here are talking about not letting their daughters date, scaring the crap out of their boyfriends and safeguarding their purity like the cure for cancer is in there.
    have you tried greg softely's decals? his ebay storefront is cyclomondo.

    and i'm not going anywhere near this son/daughter debate... perhaps that should be taken to a new thread?

    FWIW, I'm just as tentative (maybe more) about my 12 year old son so let's not make assumptions about which type of parent is the most apprehensive about their children's future.

    Wait a minute...this is a bike forum. Let's troll. Are mixte frames for men or women? Discuss!

    I've tried cyclomondo, but cannot seem to find his email or get ahold of him to ask him specifically about the decals - he doesn'thave them on his store. Anyone have an email that they could PM me?

    Al, I looked at that site previously, and didn't see anything, but will have to email him later. One would think that SOMEONE would be making decals for one of the most popular bikes (of all time) built during the bike boom by one of the biggest companies in the world.

    i didn't keep his direct emails, but you can contact him through his ebay ID, which is gts753:

    http://myworld.ebay.com/gts753/

    he was able to put together a custom kit for me that wasn't listed on ebay. his decals are first-rate.

    Okay, I know that everyone wants to drop the whole son/daughter thing, and I do too - but first, as the guy who first mentioned sons and so opened the floodgates, I just have one thing to say:

    I certainly did not mean to imply that boys bear less responsibility for, shall we say, unfortunate occurrences than do girls. By extension, the parents of boys are likewise as responsible as the parents of girls. All I was trying to get at is the special father/daughter relationship, which I've observed in so many friends of mine (often quite enviously), and the emotional extremes it can lead to. I don't have that same sort of intense, extreme relationship with my son, although I can see that my wife does. Everything you guys are saying about your daughters, my wife says about our son. Meanwhile, I get to enjoy a much lower-key sort of relationship, much like the one that I suspect some of you guys' daughters have with their mothers. And that's all I was getting at.

    Now, let's get back to talking about bikes. And someone else better jump in here, because if it's up to me, all I have to talk about is the SA hub I rebuilt tonight - and I'm sure that no one wants to hear about that!

    Spring gives me an itch to try things out...

    Been thinking I should build up a new 3 speed coaster hub I have sitting in the shop... and would then fit it to my fixed gear Kuwahara to test it out.

    Well, about that....

    As some of you may recall, I'm rebuilding my '72 "All-Gold" Sports. I'm dealing with some handicaps, though - in particular, I don't have a dedicated work area. When I disassembled the rear hub I didn't have the luxury of leaving parts laid out in order until I could clean and reassemble it. Instead, I had to bag assemblies together in Ziplock bags as logically as I could, and hope for the best.

    (Actually, I could also have used photographs and notes to help me keep track - and to a certain extent, I did - but I always seem to notice the limitations and errors in my notes and photographs when I go to rely on them.)

    So, anyway, last night I got around to rebuilding the hub led mostly by online instructions from sheldonbrown.com, supplemented with some exploded-view drawings I dug up online. And, I must say, there were some tense moments when I was convinced that I'd never figure it out - mostly when it came to fitting the pawls and pawl springs - but ultimately it all worked out. Right now the hub is purring like a kitten.

    And now, today - wheel truing!

    Yeah, the pawls and pawl springs are the trickiest part for me, too.

    Boldly reviving the 3-Speed thread to introduce mine. I finished him a couple months ago and completely forgot to share him with C&V... I hope these photos don't turn out too big...

    My candy-apple red 1974 Raleigh Ltd-3 - he's been give the name "Sir Walter" as a little play on words.



    The only functional changes aside from flushing/regreasing hubs/bearings/headset, etc, was to put some new grips and new tyres on him and he's good to go. I decided to make him comfortable, so I ended up finding a mid-70's Brooks B-66 saddle on eBay, and throwing brass bell, NOS rear rack, and Wald basket on him so I could make him my grocery/errand bike.

    But I think my favorite part is just the finish and feel of the cork grips ($10 Dimension cork grips, another eBay steal). They're cushy and smooth, and feel much better under the hands than the rougher rubber grips which it was equipped with.

    A view of the cockpit:





    To prevent inquiries - yes, I still have the chainguard, I removed it because it didn't effect my riding and I liked the look of the bike without it.

    Now that I'm riding three-speeds, I see the wisdom of chainguards. I don't have to tie up my trousers. I just jump on. This is a bigger convenience than I thought it would be. It's so nice not to need any equipment other than a helmet. I still like to wear gloves as a safety garment. I have fallen and ripped my gloves, which means I would have ripped my hands without gloves.

    My two three-speeds are a 1966 Hercules, which is a Raleigh Sports with another label, and a 1973 Raleigh Twenty folding bike.

    My wife likes her chain guard, me, not so much.

    I have single-speeded both our bikes, her's a '62 Raleigh ladies Sports, mine a India-Hercules sports-clone. Her's is all steel, where mine is converted to all alloy components. I don't know what steel the Hercules made of, but it is lighter than her Sports frame, and is very resilient.

    I know I've mentioned it before, but it is flat as a pancake here in our town, and single-speeding makes a simple bike simpler.

    i can't stand the stock "hockey stick" chainguards that raleigh supplied with many of their 3-speeds. my pants have caught on them, my shoes have caught on them, and they haven't protected me from getting chain grease on my pants... the french alloy chainguards seem a little bit better, with less sharp edges and better coverage. but full chaincases seem best.

    I found myself tagging the chainguard. I think it's because I've been riding clipless the last few years, and am not used to platforms again. Plus, aren't the BB's wider on Raleighs? Still, I like the chainguard, less of a grease threat.

    I'll let Veloria correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm 99.9% certain they're Schwalbe Delta Cruisers in Creme (DL-1's use size 28" of course).
