    Different ways to use your bike

    not sure denver's light rail would approve, however, the train isn't really accomodating to bikes. one at each end of each car excluding the end where the train driver is.

    Rod brake roadster with the fenders missing. Eastman is a good bet. The Raleigh Roadster was made all over the world under license for many years.

    Impressive ! I love the style of a road brake roadster. And absolutely love Raleigh. Is this brand known for its legendary strength ?

    Eastman? not particularly, it is a Raleigh clone/copy. Made out of inferior grade materials. Yellow Jersey Bike Shop in Madison, WI used to import them, but I believe they have stopped. There are a couple of shops that import the Chinese version the Flying Pigeon. You can pick up a Raleigh DL-1 for a reasonable price if you keep searching. I paid ~$135 for mine. I have seen some sell for half that and others 3 times that.

    Both those bikes seem to have truss rods on the front fork, which is different from the Eastman or Raleigh DL1 is it not?

    In the picture on the right, he's just using the bike for a cart and walking it, he's not riding it.

    They do both have the truss rod, Eastman and Flying Pigeon both build domestic models like that. The Raleigh DL-1 does not have a truss rod fork.

    British bikes were "the bomb" for a long time, during the Industrial Revolution British steel was second to none. Birmingham England was the steel capital of the world. "The All Steel Bicycle" was the top of the line. At the same time the British Empire was near it's peak.

    Interesting ! I have seen news about Egland and their back interest fro steel again. I think they are reconsidering the industry of steel ! Good for us
