    I have to admit, figuring out why a hub isn't behaving, if nothing is broken, is always a mystery to me. Have you looked at this page:...

    Yes, I meant fat. Autocorrect makes everything better. I don't know if the tires are gay. It's really not my business to ask.

    That'll look sharp- :thumb:

    If you're going to add cantilever bosses, might as well go to 650b. You'll get a hair more clearance for fat tires, which is the whole point.

    Center pull pivots on the seat stays is probably not a problem. Center pull pivots on the fork, maybe not such a good idea since the heat may compromise the brazing of the fork crown. Cantilever...

    On the paint, all I can suggest is to take what solvents you already have, and try the mildest ones. Wet a paper towel with solvent, rub the blue paint for a while, then see if your paper towel has...

    New Jersey Pine Barrens, anyone?

    I'm pretty sure I've tried starting threads like this before, but didn't get much traction. So I'll try again.

    Question is, is there anyone on this forum who rides in the Pine Barrens of New...

    Yep. But on the other hand, if it were a Dick Power bike, it would be too precious to ride. Like my Alvin Drysdale road bike... lovely machine, fit me perfectly, but... what's the point? I felt...

    Since the late king died in 1952, I'd assume the bike is from the years immediately after that. Location and condition factor in the value of these. I imagine someone who wants a project would be...

    No, that is distinctly not winning. No flat tires, now, that would be closer to winning.

    How about a more realistic statistic: I'm averaging approx. 188 miles per flat tire.
