    Needs more 700c wheels.

    I have a very similar wheelset on my bike right now, same sized tires, just a flip flop hub instead of a coaster brake in the rear. Those rims in the picture are definitely steel -- check out the rust by the nipples. Same thing is happening to mine.

    I am counting down the days until I can finally replace this wheelset.

    Just the kind of thing and aging chi-town punk would get in a bidding war with Deebo over.

    Go knock him the f (cough cough) k out. and start shopping around for SPD-compatible jump boots

    That really is pretty. Looks like a proto mtb, makes me wanna get my old Schwinn coaster bike powder coated.

    Looking at that bike reminds me of something I really miss in contemporary frames: one piece "American" bottom brackets.
