As a general rule older bikes had fewer speed which ment stronger
wheels and enough speeds to accomodate the average rider in
non race rides very well. I much prefer the old 5 & 6 speeds
for in town or short country rides.
I've converted 3 old "race" bikes from the past to city bikes with
new bars, stem, seats, platform pedals and fenders. Had a lot
of fun doing it and all serve me well.
My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.
