    Buy the coolest looking bike that makes you want to ride a lot. Think like you did when you were 10 years old. The bright shiny red bike with lots of chrome bits was the bomb. There are no bad bikes....

    I went out this morning and caught onto a group. They were a well organised group, maybe 30-40 riders. Pace was in the 22-25 mph range. Me, I havent ridden in 2 weeks. Base miles maybe 300 miles this...

    One of the few round sets of wheels I own. They are kind of fitting to the bike. And the braking is surprisingly good, but I don't ride in the rain. I might throw some alloys on on the future.

    Yeah, $300 shipping, yikes! But I have never seen fender braces like on this bike. Great old saddle, 4 speed hub, cool bike. And I can say I got it from Bikes Direct.

    Its in merry old England. 1957 built.

    I've seen old Raleigh three speeds that get this sort of rust problem. They have thicker tubing though. This is Accles and Polock tubing which I am guessing...

    Bringing this thread back to show off my Mercier. Bought it last Fall. It was frame with handlebar, stem, seatpost and saddle for $45. It was really dirty, but cleaned up really nice. Love the color,...

    So this is what I am looking at. I have some interest but condition is concerning. May just let it pass. Maybe someone else would like this in their stable.

    This is C&V. I don't understand upgrades. Old worn components work great. What would you want new stuff for?

    Rare old bike with rust

    I have my eyes on an old bike that has some condition issues. The frame tubes have quite a bit of rust, though the original paint is still intact. The tubes sort of have a pebbly texture to them. The...

    The Singer was sort of bland. Some very basic components. I like the Routens. That has some interesting bits.

    Simplex outfitted the vast majority of entry level bikes with the Prestige derailleur. Operator error and 16 year old mechanics were the reason behind most derailleur into spoke failures. My 1/2...

    I believe I saw one of those very bikes hanging on the wall at Wastyn Cycles last March. Oscar Wastyn Jr. told me this was John Vande Velde's bike:

    My wife and I used a wicker picnic basket, flat kind like a suitcase, for years on our Schwinn Twin tandem. The tandem had a front rack. I used a couple bungee cords to hold it in place. Most...

    There is nothing wrong or worrisome with Simplex Delrin derailleurs. It's my derailleur of choice actually. This nonsense about breaking is ridiculous. I have never seen a rear derailleur break and...

    I was just thinking outloud. If a ride were to be planned on a weekend day in Wisconsin, I would probably drive up the night before to camp overnight. Then just a short drive or perhaps ride to the...

    It's still a bike. A simple machine. A drive train of a chain between two geared sprockets. AND powered by the rider. The difference between a basic bike boom 10 speed and a modern road bike is...

    Hard to imagine not working on your own bike. It's part of cycling and being a cyclist. I rarely let anyone touch my bikes. They are much to personalized to me. It's a Zen thing. I like gluing my...
