    Three things...the saddle would likely be a B15 style saddle as a club model.

    I think it's a conversion for a couple of reasons. One is we've never seen one quite like that on this list before. Two, I've seen a dozen drop bar Canadian Sports/Superbes and none had chainguards....

    I think my wrench/buddy did Wally World bikes to the tune of 25 (or more) a shift. Piecework.

    That modern tire (Schwalbe?) may be wider and taller than an original Dunlop EA3. Hence the problem. Trimming that bolt is not sacrilege IF you go you here and confess, invoking St Christoper as your...

    I'm prone to taking multiple bikes apart, mix it all up in a bucket (and don't skimp on the paté) and make "custom" frankenbikes. Obviously, more come apart than go back together, leaving me with way...

    Yeah close it. Irony, pot, kettle, black, it's got it all. FIFY

    edit...great thread otherwise. Except I've almost always ridden old humble and cheap bikes. Spoiled, really.

    It's got a Centurion vibe, pretty. I'd triplize it with the Mtn LX front mech.

    But I do that to most riders these days.

    It really has the same "look" or cut of a Middlemore. The way the nose crosses down low. Maybe the same factory, different brand?

    My EX had an 89 Ascent EX (Ha!) in smoke with the same curved fork as your. Those graphics are louder but the brake booster decal suggests 91-ish to me. Nice bikes.

    Not too surprising considering 27 X 1 1/4 was originated in England by Dunlop. Ulster and England were joined at the hip (for maybe too long but that's OT). 630mm beads certainly caught on for a...

    I do have TA rings and I'm partial to TA in general but if nothing shows up I may take the Sinz route. I'll check my LBS/coop for some used square taper BMX cranks on Thursday. Thanks to all.

    Imagine 300 mm cranks. The amount your knee would have to bend backwards on the upstroke is extreme if not impossible. Then imagine 3 inch cranks. Very little bend is required to make a rotation....

    WTB short TA crank arms

    My ongoing recovery from knee replacement dictates that I find some short crankarms if I want to get back on a bike soon. I know TA made some as short as 150 mm so I'd take anything between that and...

    I "learned" urban commuting on a vintage rigid in the 80's starting with Conti Goliaths (and others). Mtn bikes allowed you a better view of the street-scape imo. Racks and bags mounted easily....
