    New "old" grocery getter...

    Hello to all. This is my first post to Utility Cycling. I just finished my grocery getter.

    The reason it is new "old" is it was a ten speed that was won in the mid 90's and sat in a basement until a month ago. A good friend gave it to me since he knew I was into bikes. It is an old Korean Randor, whatever that is.

    I fabed some fenders, installed a pair of Wald baskets on a Topeak rack, and installed a Sunlight center stand.

    Of course the bars are not original. I had to have that upright riding position. I also replaced the mini saddle with a proper padded seat...It rides very well.

    Hope you like it..

    Best regards,

    Mike

    FWIW I think it's a fine Utility Bike as you have it built now. Very fuctional and comfy for this
    use.
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    I think this bike would meet 100% of the utility needs for 95% of the cyclists who would ever consider using a bicycle for utility; and probably 95% of the utility needs for the other 5% of cyclists who would like to have a bicycle built for utility. Nice bike, OP and good write up.

    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
