    It's a Pederson, sometimes called a Dursley, a 19th century design. The originals are indeed rare and valuable, but they've been in production again since the 1970s and aren't terribly rare. The mech is a giveaway; the originals didn't have derailleurs. They're also strangely rideable.

    I don't know, but it should be fried and spicy, so count me in.

    That first pic doesn't make me say DAHELL, but it does make me say, "I like those old-school wingnut quick-releases. Where can I get me some of those?"

    A very gripping tail no doubt.

    Not as pretty as vintage ones, in my opinion, but:

    VO Stainless Steel Wingnuts MK II - Skewers - Wheels, Rims, Hubs, Tires & Accessories - Components

    I also see the real deal on Ebay occasionally. You'll need solid axles, though.

    Thanks. I do like those, but you're right, they don't have that vintage cachet. And at $52 (plus the cost of converting to hubs with solid axles), not gonna happen any time soon.

    And actually a quick search of fleabay for "bicycle wingnuts" turns up lots of vintage options, some quite cheap. But again, what I would really want would be something retro-ish, that can screw onto a replacement QR skewer.

    Ya that just slays me. "You never know who in your household might be a sexual predator."
    FB4K - This December, 2014, 5288 kids received bikes for Christmas. For many, it was their first bike, ever. Every bike, new and used, was donated, built, cleaned and repaired. That amounts to well over 10,000 volunteer hours this fall, just in the Twin Cities. Check us out on FaceBook: FB4K.
    Disclaimer: 99% of what I know about cycling I learned on BF. That would make, ummm, 1% experience. And a lot of posts.
