    In original form, I slalom up the hills back and forth, and stay away from high traffic roads. You can take some of the teeth out of the hill by winding back and forth on your way up. It's slower to...

    Sometimes a light roadster type bike is neither English, nor a 3-speed, but still similar to English bikes. Some manufacturers took the light roadster design and incorporated their own way of doing...

    I like that diagram. There's always the dreaded 599mm 26 inch size as well, seen usually on US-made lightweights and roadsters from the 1940s and earlier. They are rather uncommon compared to the...

    Usually 26 x 1-3/8 means 650A. However, Schwinn had a size sometimes called

    and sometimes also called

    "26 x 1-3/8 x 1-1/4"

    These Schwinn tires are actually a slightly...

    A great deal actually, the tall frame is a great bike. The Schwinn frame angles are a little different, and some people actually like them better than the Raleigh in terms of fit.

    Very steep then. Sunrace/Sturmey is making some interesting products today. I re-built a 1959 Schwinn last year with a new Sturmey 3-speed coaster brake, and I thought the quality was pretty good....

    That ASC has been up for awhile. I think that price is steep, but then they come up pretty rarely, so I admit I don't know whether there actually is a "going price" for a good ASC.

    Thank you for the compliments. This particular New World came as a bike "core" and I built up around the core using parts I had in my bins. I have a 1947 New World as well, and I love these bikes....

    CR18s are great rims, but a royal pain in the ass for mounting tires. I put them on a 1940ish Schwinn 3 speed project.

    I put CR18s on a 1940 Schwinn New World project I built last fall. They look fine, ride reasonably well, and brake OK. The price is pretty good. They come in 32, 36, and 40 hole drillings, so you get...

    Awesome bike. That has many of the prewar hallmarks- fender braces, seat clamp, etc. It looks like it has an old slide rail Mesinger saddle as well, which would be correct. DD is a cool variation...

    Thank you, that's the length I ended up getting. 275 was a "specialty" length, so I just rounded up to 276, which sounds like it will be functional.
