Four really old bikes in five minutes, I figured was no accident, so I asked the guy in the shade if they were part of a group. They were at the midpoint of a century ride organized by the Ohio Wheelman for their annual meet in Fidlay. He had a Ranger single speed coaster brake with beautiful wood rims. Another was on a Pederson like this: http://www.bulgier.net/pics/bike/Coo...Full-Right.jpg Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me, so no pictures to prove it happened.
What manner of new fangled contraption is that?
