    A few years back I went to the library and took a look at the big ol' Schwinn dealer repair manual from the 70's. They had sections on repairing AW hubs and yes, the 333 hub, with exploded diagrams.

    Understood. With my blog all my comments are moderated, so I'll go through them a few times a week on tour when the wifi is good. The Wordpress app makes it pretty easy to take care of that stuff.

    Maybe?

    I know how tough it is to hold out when you want something bad now, but...I'd say hold out. Because Murphy's Law dictates that as soon as you buy that bike for probably a bit too much, a...

    I'm going to state a slightly divergent opinion and say that those old Huffys aren't all that bad, so long as you are getting the bike for free or really cheap (like $25.) They make great BBL...

    Good blog! I've been enjoying the posts and have it on my reader.

    To the OP: I was going to comment on the blog about that, but it appears that you are not allowing comments to be posted.

    We had 14 total, but only 5 stuck out to the bitter end!

    I should be doing the next one in October, though I'll be attempting the Three Speed Camping Tour in late August!

    Well, if you think Portland prices are so expensive, you should bring a truck full of low-priced three-speeds from Nova Scotia. I'll be waitin' for ya! ;)

    I haven't used those brown Kendas, but have used others. Looks like the retail of the brown one would be around $15 USD, comparable to Kendas you can get in the States. I'm guessing it would be that...

    $300 may be on the higher side, but I wouldn't call it expensive for a bike in that good of shape, provided that the Dynohub still functions. They'd be trying to sell it for $500 if it was here in...

    I haven't seen any in 26" x 1 3/8", but that doesn't mean they don't exist. It would be nice if Schwalbe started offering their Delta Cruiser in brown for that size!

    The whole angle of the story was on modern simple bikes, so that's probably why. I talked with the reporter for maybe a half-hour and did mention vintage three speeds, but as with most news stories...
