    It's period correct and looks appropriate on that bike.

    The Brooks Swift - like most Brooks saddles - is designed to be pointed up a little in front.

    Thanks for the QR advise. Why, what's bad about unicrowns?

    Parts-bin Frankenbike

    Just finished this conversion of a bone-stock Windsor Clockwork (Orange, 'natch) into this unholy creation - my interpretation of a do-it-all bike. Helps me answer that nagging question: "Oooh, I wonder where that trail goes?".



    A set of gimme 700 x 35 gummies.



    The Sturmey-Archer S2 experiment. Takes a little getting used to. Gotta hold your mouth just right...



    Leftover flat bar, hand-me-down Ergons & MTB levers. Had to buy the B17, though.

    Take a link out of that chain if you can. Something about having a wheel slammed that far back in the track-ends skeeves me out.

    I don't know much about freestyle bikes, but I can tell you I like seeing someone riding BMX with a brake.

    If I were four inches taller, I'd be a perfect circle. I'm 5' 11" & 52" around the chest. Not your classic cyclist build.

    Yep, I need a half-link. The 35's won't clear the brakes if I remove a full link.

    Enough with the one word responses that have nothing to do with the thread, please.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.
