great old-timey 3 speed bikes that totally rocked during the 50's

i think he was refering to your trying to make the basso a 3 speed.
if you did, i imagine you would opt for an internal hub like this one



the problem is, I imagine you're going to run into spacing issues with the rear dropouts.
meh.. what do I know.. ask ze german,
if anyone could make it work, it's my bet that he could.

nice bike btw.
push that curvy hotness all over RV

i love the sprung saddle on that thing. yeah, what tink said. man, i need to use more image tags.

that'd be for making it a two speed fixed gear, and is pretty complicated i think. sheldon has an article on it here:

http://sheldonbrown.com/awfixed.html

i doubt it's worth trying, i'm just a sucker for strange bike setups. either way, enjoy!

Steel frames don't have spacing issues. Besides most internal gear hubs are around 120mm OLD anyways.

btw: I believe that SA 3 spd hubs are 110! You have not lived until you open one of those sugars apart and see all the paws, springs, keys and gears.

And there might be some models that are 110mm O.L.D., but most are somewhere between 115mm and 119.5mm. (http://www.sturmey-archer.com)

i'm getting off of work in 10 minutes

half an hour from that point i will have picked up a sixer
and peddled my way around dc for a minute

now i plan on heading back to virginia sometime while the sun's out
company would be appreciated
its kind of hard to work on polo drills by yourself.

call the phone

kisses

TONIGHT.
if it's raining, meetup at home base (Warehouse, on 9th St) instead. If it's clear, meetup at sherwood.

If it's nasty, we'll drink more and ride less. If it's nice out, we'll ride more and drink a tad less.

BE THERE. 7pm, rain or shine!

Sorry folks,no recruiting for me tonight. If I'm lucky,I'll get out of here by 9. Today has not been a fun day.

BTW,has anyone PM'd/e-mailed/called the lost Pirates(EmMildew,Justin,Waitforme,etc) to see if they can make the TSMR?
