    That's a really nice bike, but I don't see what's wintery about it; when you say "winter bike," I'm thinking of hub gears and fenders to start with, and probably studded (or at least knobby) tires. ...

    Nice! Are those wild mushrooms? We could have a whole sub-thread about foraging by bike.

    If you're going to the trouble of putting parts on a frame that wasn't meant for them, you might as well get some decent parts. Walmart MTB parts will probably just give you trouble.

    That said,...

    Nice. I've got an old-fashioned sewing-machine oilcan -- but just as often, I use an empty airline-size contact-lens solution bottle with the red tube from a can of WD-40 stuck into the nozzle.

    I don't do cycling as a sport (nothing against it...just not my scene), but I sometimes do community rides and bike/ped promotion events. I've never gotten any flak for my old bikes -- and people...

    Meh. I don't like to pass judgment without seeing the whole film, but this looks like the same old stuff the major manufacturers (here, Shimano and Trek) have been sponsoring for years -- it's...

    It depends on the audience.

    If you're talking to us (the geeks, the readers of Sheldon Brown), it's a light roadster.

    If you're talking to a civilian born before 1960, it's a touring bike.

    Personally, I think mixtes look and work way better with upright bars than with drops -- so this is a good one. Add in the Schwalbe tires and you've got a very good deal, if it fits you.

    The Schwalbe Marathon Plus is still available in 635. That said, if you're the kind of person who searches out a Flying Pigeon, you're probably not going to want to put fancy German tires on it. ...

    +1, except I use mineral spirits. Honestly, though, an AW hub isn't as complicated as you might think; if the flushing method above doesn't work, I'd just take the whole thing apart, clean...

    It really depends on your market. San Francisco is a tough one -- I have no idea how to find good deals there, with all that demand. In smaller, less bike-crazed places, I've had good luck with...

    As long as I've got good mittens and good wool socks, I'm OK for all temperatures. Ice, though, is a different story.

    I got one a few months back. Good seller and no problems. Haven't installed it yet, but I've got a Peugeot and a Moto that I think will probably thank me for it, some day.

    +1 on Crane for elegance and quality.

    I had the same one -- my vote for worst bike ever.

    I'm interested to see that hardly any other '80s kids had beach cruisers. Was that just a Florida thing?

    Sure, ride what you like. There's only one practical concern I can think of: I've seen a lot of step-through frames where the seat tube has bent toward the rear of the bike where it joins the top...

    OK, the OP's question is a little far-fetched, but I often have wondered how much chrome I've inhaled while de-rusting old steel rims with a wire brush on an electric drill. I usually do it outside,...
