    By covering it if it's raining cats and dogs outside, instead of being a dope?

    Everybody acts like a few drops of rain or a little splash or spray will destroy a leather saddle. It's pretty easy...

    I think the danger posed by rain to leather saddles is wayyyy overstated. Unless you drop the thing in a lake, or leave it out overnight in a thunderstorm, rain is not going to hurt it. Even then...

    Probably Huffy, or maybe a very late model Schwinn? (the fork crown seems very un-huffy). Whatever it is, it's not very old despite its condition.

    Without a pic it is basically impossible to provide any help. Although I once had a Japanese 10 speed with a "Senator" head badge.

    Well, anybody?

    I sent them $100 to ship the bike and told them to tell me how much more they needed once they know the exact cost. One week later and still haven't heard anything. I sent them a...

    As long as you need it to be? Nobody is going to be able to tell you what fits you better than you can.

    Just the postage on a disassembled bike should not be $100. I've received and sent a couple of bikes within the past two years. But that's not really what I'm concerned about. It's the "I can't find...
  9. I need a facilitator in Stratford Connecticut.

    I bought a bike on ebay, nothing fancy or special, a Columbia Roadster - I've been looking for one for over six years though. At first I couldn't believe my luck, it's not totally wrecked and the...

    It's pretty neat, and in all honesty would be out of place on any better bike. Plus Murrays aren't that bad compared to AMFs and Huffys. I've always found them to ride and handle better than their...

    I don't know which model it is, it is very hard to find Columbia catalogs from the 1950s.
    Two things to consider:
    1: It is a step through frame - a girl's bike - which counts against its value....

    We're going to need bigger/more pictures. 1957 is probably about right though.

    I am looking for somebody near Stratford, Connecticut who can assist in shipping a bike. I won the bike on ebay, the seller said they were willing to ship - but now they're dragging their feet and...

    What? I thought anybody who doesn't make their world bend to conform to my whims was ignorant and intolerant. :cry:

    They are scarce, but like most of the foreign stingray copies - not particularly sought after.

    What is ignorant or intolerant about having a bike taking up space and possibly being a hazard to other people - inside of a space where bicycles generally aren't present?

    None of the old cyclometers work well with QR wheels. The hub odometers that would are rare as hen's teeth these days. I seem to recall a roller drive odometer but again, it must be pretty rare these...

    PS: the short chain guard is because the bike has a derailleur. The chain has to move sideways a bit to change gears. The normal full length chain guard would cause the chain to snag when shifting.

    It will be easier for you to get information from users here if you keep your questions in one thread instead of resurrecting threads that have been dead for years.

    I have no idea what line of thought suggests sharper teeth would improve anything. Can somebody explain this to me? All common knowledge suggests this would make them worse.

    It looks like it has a Huret Allvit derailleur, and that might have a year stamped on it. In any event the Allvit dates it to the early 1960s at the earliest. Triumph bicycles had nothing to do with...

    I'm a fan of Columbias, but their quality varies greatly depending on which era they were made in. 1960s though is generally safe. Look for Weinmann brakes, Union front hub and pedals, Araya or...
