is that legal in your country? drinking and riding a bike i mean. i've done it in the past here in austria. however a couple of friends got caught by police at some point. you can get into serious trouble here. like losing your drivers licence and a really hefty fine on top. nowadays i am weary of riding my bike when drinking.

Doing a brewmeister bike myself. Cheapest china bike I could find, threw on a springer & got some cool old school tires coming, plus a 2 speed kickback.
Also just scored a sweet Corvette 3 speed bike. I will bmx/cruiser/ratrod it. Not slammed. Fun project for winter.

The Schwinn is a bike shop bike. Functional but they were running 700c on it which I will pull for 26".

Don't drink and pedal, you might spill it.

Rode what we call 'urban mtn biking' yesterday with my adult kids. Neighborhoods, paths, trails & sidewalks. Just like we did when they were kids.
My rat hung in there.

Ever since visiting India I've wanted one of those Indian Hercules double top tube rod brake bikes, for a pub crawls.


Something like $61. Shipping to Oregon would be extra.

Proper pub crawl. If you call hitting 45mph crawling... https://www.facebook.com/groups/1683288705275035
And this is my steed with me in the large hat.
No wheels over 20" allowed

Well, now I know what I was doing wrong. My wife and I were on vacation in Savannah and had taken our bikes. We went to a bar at like 3 in the afternoon and were there thru dinner and shift change. I could still ride, but my wife could not (she could walk, but walking with the bike was above her skill level), so drunk AF I was one handing my bike and holding her handlebar with the other to tow it alongside. We made it, slowly, meanderingly, back to where we were staying. But next time I'll know to bring the proper bike.
