This bike is awesome.

Turn around point of the lunchtime workday bike ride route. One day I may bring a fly rod and do a little fishing, probably be late getting back to work if I ever do.
(Edited to swap image, forgot I already posted that one, probably already posted this one too, oh well)

That's OK, @treebound. Old Raleigh's like that are special, and yours is a fine example of the breed.

Have you seen this thread yet: "For the Love of English 3-Speeds"?

My Marin I bought last month.

I've extended the goose neck since the photo was taken.

I use the water bottle holder for a large can of wasp spray incase I get into trouble. Our public officials changed our city into a sanctuary city against our wishes and there's all kinds of trouble now!!

I transport it with el Camino..

Old people ride old bikes, right? Here's mine:



1984 Trek 660, with some OG Look pedals. No adventures yet, just a few trail rides, but it'll do until I can afford something new.

Planet Bike flashers with clamps, I think they came from the local bike shop, available on Amazon and other places. I don't recall the model name of them. I wrapped some black electrical tape around the quick release clips on them so they wouldn't release when I didn't want them to.

2013 Culprit Croz Blade. The best bike nobody ever heard of. All carbon, Di2, TRP cable disc, a great ride. I ride vintage, too, but sometimes modern is fun too. This is out in Somis, CA yesterday with Moorpark Ride Group. I'm 68 yrs old. This is my newest bike and the '64 Legnano, had since new is my oldest.
