Just refurbed this old Claud Butler. Went with tubulars, Schwalbe One, oh my they have a nice ride. Took it out on its maiden voyage a couple days ago and my riding buddy remarked, "Your bike is so quiet". It really is. And everything seems "tight ". Some of the more unusual components... Zeus Criterium crankset, Huret Svelto derailleur, early GB stem, and my fave Wrights saddle which is a survivor from a '69 Raleigh Grand Prix.

Bought one of these new in 1990 I believe, loved the bike, put a lot of miles on it then moved to Mountain Bikes. I believe the Trek 1100 had "Oval" front chain rings.

My Trek 7.1 FX. It's my secondary ride. When the Trek Marlin is in the shop usually. It's faster but not as comfortable.

2012 Windsor TimeLine from BikesDirect that I had my local shop convert to three speeds with a Sturmey-Archer SRF3. Such a fun bike to ride! Itís running 46x18, so 52/69/92 GI. Itís ideal for NYC.

I am always wondering how to create a good chain-line with such conversions. I've got a Trek 650 I'd like to convert to Sturmey Archer 3-speed.
