    A lot of this depends on where you're talking about. In DC and NYC, I'm starting to see Linuses and Globes that are already starting to look pretty C&V, after 5-6 years of hard outdoor use. As...

    At my college, from time to time they'd clean out the storage areas in the dorm basements and sell the abandoned stuff. Junior year I bought a '70s Schwinn Suburban, which in 1994 was definitely the...

    Hmm. It seems like you could do it; the question is why.

    It sounds like currently either the hub or the freewheel is too wide. If the SS hub is a coaster-brake model, I'd be pretty cautious...

    I should mention here, though, that the one PITA feature of my '84 is the Swiss-threaded BB. If the BB on the OP's bike isn't good, that might be a deal-killer. I managed to buy some new Swiss cups...

    Y'all can sneer all you like, but I love my '84 P-whatever (same paint job as plonz's, even, though mine does have a RD hanger). It's my tried-and-true all-around bike for commuting, shopping,...

    You might want to take a look at this thread, in which I explain everything I screwed up while doing a triple-crank touring conversion on an older road bike.

    In that process, I tried a Takagi...

    My 2:

    Down to about 20 F, I like cross-country ski gloves.

    Below 20 F, mittens are the best. I've been using gore-tex shell mittens with wool liner mittens; fleece liner mittens would be a...

    These are great suggestions. Thanks! dweenk , do the crushed clam shells ever cause punctures? A friend has a crushed-clam driveway at her beach house and insists that nobody ride a bike on it,...
  18. Backyard path surface material for bikes?

    OK, this isn't strictly C&V, but y'all're DIY types.

    I keep my bikes in my basement, which has a door to the back yard, about 8 feet or so below street level (obviously). To get there from the...

    That's my opinion, too. But keep up the enthusiasm -- even in its Robin Hood trim, the Raleigh Sports (note final "s") is a great bike!

    Winter in Eastern North Carolina is usually nice for riding (though today it was about 36F/2C and raining. Yuck.). It hardly ever...

    Oh boy, so many reasons I like being car-light (car-free inside the city limits, is how I put it)....
