    And rides much better after I adjusted the barrel adjuster on the cable by the 8 turns it took so that the indicators line up. This is my first experience with internally geared hubs, and my first...

    My recently purchased Finnish city bike, a Helkama Trekking with a Nexus 7-speed hub. I would think about 15 years old or maybe more since it has a cantilever brake on the front. V-brakes are much...

    I think I need to take more pictures of the ratty bikes I see being used around town here. They'd put your ratty bikes to shame!

    I rode nothing but vintage fixed gear conversions from 2004 until 2010. That includes the two years I spent in your neighborhood, in Fayetteville, where I rarely touched my...

    Amazing. I love that paint job!

    I've been keeping my eyes peeled for one of these for several years now. They don't seem to appear to often.

    California is the only place I've ever been to that allows it. I understood that the guidelines told me I wasn't responsible for the motorcyclist, but that didn't help me put my guard down at all. ...

    Adding your own dynamo hub and lighting may actually make financial sense, particularly if you're not firmly in the "must have disc brakes" camp. I added a low-end Sanyo and good German lights to...

    Ha! I'm thinking of doing something very similar to mine when it arrives in Sweden. It'll help me blend in a little better here in the sea of city bikes.
