I've been thinking about that. If you are both knackered and you have a hill to go up, might be nice. Still, how slow can you go and remain upright?

Also, who knew the FD had the range?

The FD range may be improved slightly by a larger sprocket on the rear than on the front (assuming one isn't cross chained).

With the cargo bike, it would be nice to go slower than walking pace, and still be riding (thus using extra leverage to get a heavy load up the hills).

With the tandem, once the speed drops down to walking pace... perhaps it is time to just get off and walk, although, I suppose for touring, if one had 100 pounds of gear (other than needing to slim down a bit), there would be benefits of staying on the bike.

Now, for really low gearing... 7.5 inch gears?

https://youtu.be/FgIL6eHHgZU?t=41s
The problem with the super-low gearing is it makes the hills last a whole lot longer

The question is... do YOU want to be a part of history?
Wow is right....a vintage bucycle/bycycle (he can't decide which) brakes/breaks (he can't decide which), curved handlebars, and the kickstand works! Amazing find!

Maybe a stupid question, but as I don't imbibe, and it doesn't look familiar to me, what is a "wine ring"?

Ohhh... I could use that at times

I'm heading out this afternoon to fill up my cargo bike

I wonder how well it does with traction.

Do you think it swivels at the end of the fork like the Bob Trailer?

Cannondale Fixed Gear



I have a Cannondale 2.8 aluminum frameset. I purchased this bike as a fixed gear conversion. It needed some work so I put some money into it and made it functional. I bought a new chain, and new chainring bolts. I had a vision for it but I just don't have the time and money to do what I wanted with it. I am selling it just so I can get it out and make some room for my other bikes. Works and rides perfect. New, smooth bb. I am not sure what I can get out of it, Highest offer takes it. Text me for a faster response @ show contact info Will provide more pictures and specs upon request. *Lowballs will be ignored* *No Trades* *Basket and Pedals will not be included*

I always find it suspicious to see a SS/Fixie with vertical dropouts and the chain not installed.

It does have pretty unique retro-styling for a 1980 vintage bike.

It does, and it's a good looking bike. But holy hell. $1850? No way.
And I think "budget" doesn't mean what those bicycle center people think it means.

I like the covered wagon look


Ever feel like a horse?

According to the Surly page, it is rated at 300 lbs (136kg)
Burley rates their cargo trailer at 100 lbs (45 Kilos)

Mine?
Hard to say, but I'd put it at about ¼T (metric or US, take your pick), but it maxes out at about the max of what I can pull.

Anyway, I'm not surprised the heavyweight trailers are expensive.

I like the GT triple triangle mountain bikes, but this one started out a couple of years ago at over $350. The price has slowly oozed down to $225. At my age, I could be fertilizing grass and flowers before it hits market value.

Hmmm... I hate thinking of the value of two decade old MTBs. $100 to $150? IF THE SHIFTER WAS FIXED?

Yep, that is about what Bicycle Blue Book puts it at for a late 90's Timberline.

At least the seller is upfront about the broken parts, but he won't get top dollar until the bike is repaired.

Maybe his goal is to build a time machine to go back two decades to sell the bike!!!
