I switched to upright bars on my Mercian over the winter and really like it for rides with my wife on rail trails. The paints lot the best but the I like the color so it will be staying as is.

Close, but it's actually a Humber that was originally built equivalent to a Sprite 5. You are correct; that is an AW hub. I've had it built a number of ways, but like it best as a drop bar three speed.

Same pic as on the CR site, I know. But it beats the garage door photo I could take of it.

Last day of the month. The Univega Grand Premio was my bike for Eroica CA in 2015, shown here half way up Kiler Canyon Road.

In spite of it being a nice rider, it hasn't been in the rotation much in the past few years and I'd cannibalized a few parts from it, but I put it back together last night and got out for about 20 miles today.

My recently acquired little Tommasini. I think it's a 1978. Oddly equipped with a 46/42 up front.
