    the Lime I just set up for my mother, who wanted to get back into riding again.



    I thought I id a decent job matching the paint to the bike for the fenders and bottle cage. scuffed, primed, painted, and clear coated with decent results.

    That's Shimano's "Coasting" setup, with a coaster brake, auto-shift transmission, and dynamo front hub to generate power for the tranny.

    thank you. beat me to it.
    3 speed electronic auto transmission, adjustable shift points, front hub generates the current to charge the small LiIon battery in the trans under the BB to tell the bike when to shift. coaster brakes, so no brakes or shifters on the bars. Bike weighs 30 lbs, which isn't too bad considering that's right in the range of a lot of FS MTBs. Apparently Trek is advertising in AARP now. My mother saw the ad and found it intriguing so I took her to our LBS and let her ride one.

    Picked up this Fuso FR1 last night from a Craig's list seller. It's going to get stripped down and converted to Campy Chorus Compact since I already have some of the parts. I've always wanted a Fuso and for a 53cm in Black to show up out of nowhere, woot! I had planned on purchasing a steel frame with the tax refund so this was a nice surprise to find on Craig's list.

    Hi,

    Super find! I have got to try scanning Craig's List more often as I keep on seeing people's good purchases. That is one of the steel frames that I would love to own and ride. It's also pretty close to my size -- especially if it's 53 cm C-T.

    Enjoy!
    Thanks.

    ^It looks to be a bit too big for you the way it's set up now, but maybe you're still working on the fit?

    ...because the bars aren't two feet below the saddle? Upright riding position is your friend.
