    Fixed up my buddy's bike for him. We went for a ride, his first in 12 years. Only about 10 miles round trip at a pace best described as deliberate. Still was fun.

    It's a rider. I've seen one MTB converted to 700c rims. It was a disaster to ride. Keep the original 26" rims, get some decent street biased tires and enjoy

    Picked up a '72 Continental last year. It's everything I remember. Heavy, crap brakes, slow handling and shifting that's best described as deliberate. Took it for a 5 mile ride down to the beach...

    Good article. Read it years ago, gave me respect for the old nail. In junior high, the bike racks were 3/4 Varsity.

    I had to ride on to work when I was 18. After 3 months, I threw it in the back of garage and walked. Horrible awful thing. Heavy and flimsy, slow and dangerous, a rolling contradiction of crap.

    I launch off curbs regularly. Light off-roading is no problem.

    Around here, riding on the sidewalk is sometimes a matter of survival. There's etiquette to be followed.
