I have one just like it with no decals also. I believe it's a 1987'ish Mt. Hood. It's a nice ride, practically steers itself. Here's a pic of mine. I've got to get some tires like yours.

For all the talk about bike shops being in trouble it seems odd that a shop would turn away any business. Perhaps instances such as this are the reason why so many shops are in trouble. It seems to...

I've never used or serviced Simplex retrofrictions so excuse my ignorance. If I am understanding them correctly, they operate in a similar manner to a wrap spring clutch. I will say I've seen Shimano...

Yeah, I think he got pissed that we were cutting into his ride talking about the bike. He took off before we were done talking and we didn't realize it. Screw him, how often do you see an Alex Singer...
