    Seriously, thanks for the guidance. This is my first entree into the murky world of re-branded bikes. Or maybe it's not, since my 199? Schwinn Mesa Runner...

    I'm trying to get a handle on my latest flea market find. It's a Ranger three-speed with plenty of mentions of both Chicago and England. The date code on the S-A hub is 61. Some of...

    I had seen the Schwinn you linked to above, but in my mind it was a Paramount, so my searches for it had been fruitless. Thanks for sharing your Trek as well. Here's a before photo of my project...

    Thanks, Donna. I figured a U-Lock was in my future. I'll try to make sure it's the near future. Any suggestions on where to apply it? For example, how would Sheldon's method translate to an Xtracycle?

    I use a cheap Lands' End rain jacket during light sprinkles and a J&G Cyclewear rain cape for real downpours. Both live in my messenger bag so I'm always ready for the rain.
