    I'd just find him something on Craigslist that's a nice bicycle, and save that Paramount as it is, as well. Fix it up, try it out, fall in love with it.

    Megulars' cleaning wax. Great stuff. I have to ride a lot of oil and gravelled roads, and live near a great many mulberry trees. So wax is a good way to keep the frame looking good.

    I liked a lot of the Schwinns from the 80's, especially the Columbus Tenax models. I had both a Prelude and a Passage, great bikes. I now have a Fuji Touring Series IV, and I think that bike is great...

    Fuji Touring Series IV is getting a new sealed bottom bracket and a set of cranks, as well as some metalwork to make the racks come out right and proper. A longer stem and a few other touches will...

    I've had a couple of True Temper bikes. I actually liked the Schwinn Traveler. But I think I went into that with lower expectations than the Trek, which I just didn't care for.

    I would echo what cycle maven said, those Tenax Scwinns are great. Also, don't overlook some of the nicer Fuji Bicycles as well.

    Really impressive bike, glad it worked out well. The Golden Boy's High Sierra looks like a fine do-it all bike as well. Tourers and solid old mountain bikes do that do it all thing well. These are a...

    I was pretty happy with my old saddle, but rhm knows saddles and leather better than almost anybody I know of. Some Taiwanese saddles have been pretty good for me, but in all, if Brooks are available...

    Wouldn't cow manure be cheaper and more environmentally friendly, as a methane source? I believe Russian Automobiles may be able to run for a short while on the gasses from their own decomposition.

    I feel a lot more comfortable on a 1980s steel tourer with lugged frame, price, ride, overall workmanship.

    Good luck tomorrow. The FUJI tourers are great bikes, sometimes they slip in under the radar. I have a Touring Series IV I got because no one else was interested.
