Lol...I meant it doesn't climb as well, it doesn't accelerate as well and it takes more effort to sustain 24+mph than my modern aluminum/carbon rig. Other than that, the bike is beautiful and it is very comfortable. It will probably be my nice weather long distant bike.

Moving into the Bike Cave


The colonial house remodel is in its finishing stages, and getting ready to be shown. Being incapable of living up to those standards, I have been included in the list of items which have to go. I go happily.

Like so many other great bikes I had I sold it and tried something else.

I can think of 5 or 6 it would be great to have back.

^ Interesting that the seller doesn't actually ride the bike, but uses it instead like a cart. When I saw there was no post/saddle, I figured he just stood on the pedals all day - until I noticed there was no chain, either!
