i wouldn't put anything on it. maybe tighten the bolt a little (or a lot). but it would have to be really cheap. new brookses are about $90 on ebay, and i like 'em firm.
i would guess lower-mid level with some nicer (shimano 600) components. the paint looks awful. if it were mine, i'd use it as a donor for a prettier fame. the barcons and rear derailleur alone are...
"the best bikes schwinn produced"? pshaw.
i wonder if today's varsity is better than the original. can't be much heavier.
i always ride with my desktop.
i prefer sun rims for their value. and i just shop for deals online. but don't buy from green canyon outfitters. their service and qc sucks.
a darrell royal quote? you don't hear that every day. but yeah, that's exactly why i ride motos and root for the sooners.
i would prefer a mid-level univega, nishiki or miyata over the same from fuji due to the stiffness and weight of my one club fuji valite experience.
unicrown forks vs pt cruisers vs crocs in an all time ugly-off.
i hate stepping on slugs while barefoot.

psst ... i don't take up more than the bike lane, and my skinny bike allows other bikes and peds to move around me on paths, trails, and (most importantly) on the bridge. users of sidecars cannot...
i've only seen them a couple times in seattle. they seem incredibly dangerous, not just for the rider and passenger(s), buy also for those of us that need to move around the slowly moving bike...
nice pics, dj.
white tape is so last year.
even last year, it was last year.
the year before that, it was sorta last year,
but not altogether last year.
but now, it's certainly last year.
i expect the same...
the mexico 66 comes in a few versions with different soles, including a wrestling shoe and a slip-on. one recent year, onitsuka released a cycling specific version with air vents and a stiffer sole,...
yes. my velo orange touring pedals feel great with them. but the japanese '80s road pedals work well. there's no pain for 50 milers.
i cannot say the same with earlier, '70s pedals where the...
onitsuka tiger mexico 66

there's no magic to wheelbuilding. just follow sheldon's page to a 't.'

seattle's 'recycled cycles' has a tip jar i've used.
^ ooh. pretty blue mercier.
aren't they.?! i'm in love. so fun to ride and easy to build up too.

or put the bike in the back of the room. ha!
so ... i'm thinking about finally replacing the decals (seat tube and fork) on my '73 falcon after it was powder coated, but i'm not sure which...
