Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

There was Royal Castle too, preceding White Castle.

one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.

We had Royal Castle in New Orleans BITD. I always thought it was the knock off, not the original. But who knows? And weren’t their burgers square?

Really? WC is suuuuper old school. They've been around since forever. I don't think that anyone here is old enough to have been around before WC, not even Robert.

Edit: I see that WC was founded in 1921, so maybe I was wrong about the Robert not being around.

Also, this is cool - the photo on the WC wiki page is that of a building a couple miles away from me -



Wiki indicates that it was WC #8 . I obviously knew that it was old, but I hadn't realized that it was that old.

Few did, and that's the way he liked it. Making pals wasn't his thing.

When I was growing up in New Jersey, we had a WC in the town next to us, but it was a "treat" not a regular thing, to go there. Loads of delicious little square burgers by the bag full 😋

Meet me on Decatur Street in New Orleans and we will put the lie to that claim at the Central Grocery.

I'm still a little shocked when I spend more than 6 bucks there. When I was a kid, if one of my friends or I got our grubby little hands on a few dollars, we could buy enough food to share among us.
