The main commuter, geared 1x7 via 1x9 from FG/SS



it's really a great frame for the indecisive; I see a return to SS in its future

and the new garage-mate that I have taken for basically only 1 30 mile ride so far.

Nice rides.

Spending time in Portland means I get to ride our '74 Raleigh 20... am keeping my eye out for a cheap road bike that I can have for more spirited riding here.

Well, I found li'l yeller, above, trolling the website of a frame ... contractor? outside Bellingham, it was a demo. There's better photos of my exact bike on their site.

seriously, I put on some ice spikers and it's not even snowing... it's january, we should be just full of snow right now.

I don't really like the red bartape, but it was either that or yellow.
cranks are now sugino XD600 26-36-46, they sit in slightly closer to the frame.
bars are the same model as before, replaced ones twisted in door prize
right shifter is ergopower veloce instead of ultrashift, thumb piece broken in door prize

The improved 91 Schwinn Crosscut. Drop bar conversion, bar-end shifters, Tektro R200a levers. New powder coat (dark metallic green) and custom early 80's edition Schwinn graphics.

Here's a "before" for comparison:



Better photos when there's light.

Damn, that came out nice. I like the livery; looks like that of Schwinn Cutter.

And... I just realized I never posted a pic of my Super Course here after the recent mods... including ergo handlebars, aero brake levers, Suntour Bar-Con shifters, a SunRace 7-speed ramped freewheel and a Suntour Cyclone M-II rear derailleur. I picked up a set of 700C wheels to replace the 27s which will be going on soon, as will the Suntour Cyclone M-II front derailleur I recently picked up.

Unbelievable weather this winter... nice to be able to go for a pootle.

This '72 was a wedding gift from a friend to match my wife's '74.



Rebuilt the rear wheel last night to replace the steel rim for alloy... the rear braking still sucks but can run higher psi and knocked off a lot of wheel weight.

Trying to get some weight off of the bike and the steel fork was getting harsh on my wrists.

Took my Soma Saga project out for it's maiden voyage today. Man oh man, is that new leather seat hard. Otherwise, it's a real pleasure. Things to do: adjust the FD. Can't get onto the big ring on the road, but can in the house. Also need to shorten the cable sheaths a little. Maybe an inch or two, they're just a little saggy. Looks bad. Also need to get the stem cut down. I bought a pipe cutter today, but it's obviously meant for copper. I'll ride it to the LBS later and have them cut it. Other than that I'm looking forward to rolling around on this ride. I was amazed at how smooth those friction shifters were. I have cheap frictions on another bike, and had some on bikes long ago, but I never used anything this smooth, they are an upgrade from indexed.

I just love that bike. Those steel HBs and rubber grips are awesome.
