    [QUOTE=dweenk;17776350]Here's my Raleigh Royale as found. I am beginning the restoration (actually more of a clean-up, tune-up, & ride).

    Well, ya gotta figure out what you like for yourself -- but if I were you, riding on the streets in NYC, I'd go for a hybrid, a hardtail MTB with slick or semi-slick tires, or (my first pick) a road...

    It's possible to change a tire with your bare hands, but it's quite a bit easier with tire levers.
  7. Sturmey Archer X-RF5 vs. S5; swappable?

    A couple of questions about Sturmey-Archer 5-speed hubs:

    I've got a couple of early-'70s S5 hubs, not currently laced to rims. They're housed in AW shells, but they're definitely the S5...

    OK, so I called them to confirm: for the full product range in the online catalog, you need to order ahead, and yes, NYS sales tax is in effect. They have a retail shop, but it's just an ordinary...

    Niagara bike IRL retail store?

    I'll be passing though Niagara Falls later this summer. Has anybody bought from Niagara Cycle's brick-and-mortar store there? Can you just walk in and get anything they've got on their site, or is...

    It's great that you've got your grandpa's bike, and you should totally love it for the sentimental value, if it reminds you of him.

    Objectively, though, these loop-frame folders are pretty much...

    This. Actually, the right tire track often isn't enough -- ride right in the center to make it absolutely clear that you're using the whole lane and anybody who wants to pass you needs to move over....

    Nice! Cottered triple cranksets are hard to find. I'd keep it just how it is. And I like the high stem, thank you very much.

    Totally sweet bike. It's a much fancier version of the Motobecane build I did for my wife last summer (which she loves):

    Last summer the mrs. and I toured and camped around Lake Champlain -- mostly pretty flat. Here we are, leaving from Burlington:

  16. '70s Schwinn Breeze: Fender Mount Hole and Seatstay Sizes?

    Hey, y'all.

    I volunteered to put a rear rack on my mom-in-law's Schwinn Breeze (early '70s, I reckon; I don't have a pic, but it looks just like this ).

    The bike is at her summer house, where...

    It depends on what you want to do with it. If you want to ride fast and sporty, it's probably not worth it. If you're just looking for something fun to ride around, casually, it might be worth it...

    The one universally important tool is a repair stand. As others have said, buy one or build one. You'll be glad you did.

    Beyond that, what you need depends on what kinds of bikes you work on. ...

    FWIW, I made the 5 3/4" axle work on a derailleur bike (low-end Motobécane) with 120mm spacing and thin, stamped dropouts (yes, I needed the 9.5mm anti-turn washers, which are not so easy to find). ...

    I have never owned a brifter (downtube, barcon, or 3-speed only), but I do find myself enticed by the Retroshift/Gevenalle friction brifters. Somebody tell me why I shouldn't be?
