I had a Crescent in the mid 70's. It is a Swedish bike that was supposed to be
an equal to mid level Peugeots, Motobecanes, etc if my memory serves me
correctly. It was a 'real' bike store bike, not Western Auto , Pep Boys or any
chain store type stuff. Just about all I can remember about mine and as a testament
to how well it might stand up to abuse, I used to do 1/8th mile long wheelies on it
and ride over jumps and stuff like that.....really abuse it. I wrecked the back wheel
and derailuer when the chain wrapped it around the frame. Then I got what I should have
had in the first place, a BMX bike. Anyway, the frame stayed perfectly straight after
some really serious abuse. As an intelligent and sane adult, I dont think you would ever
have a problem with it.
