I believe I have one, but are you looking for one from a specific era? And what do you have to trade? Feel free to email me: lerner.n at gmail.

A 1/8” chain will work fine on a chainring designed for a 3/32 chain. You just can’t go in the other direction (i.e., can’t run a 3/32” chain on a Raleigh Heron crankset).

Of the rides I tracked in July, I was at 286 miles. Add another 25 for at least one I didn’t track and 30 for commuting and errand running, and I’m at around 340. That puts me at around 2,200 for the...

I acquired a 1938 Raleigh Sports some time back that came with a swan’s neck stem. I wasn’t sure if it was original, but I did see in the Raleigh catalog of that era that such a stem was an option.

Ah, the soft focus of the magic bus. And are you really that much taller than I am? Shrinkage happens!

Beautiful bike, but that headset reflector bracket needs to go--get a spacer in there instead!

Rob, those all sound like reasonable fixes to me in order to get the bike on the road--well, except for those Schwinn grips: sacrilege!

I live only 2.5 miles from my job, so the commute is usually fast. Often, such as today, I’ll take a long way home, getting in about 20 miles total. I did that today in regular clothes and shoes on a...

I agree that if your goal is to run 42mm 650B tires (or wider as there are quite a few wider options now), your conversion possibilities are far more limited than if you want to run 38mm max tires....

Nice retro ride! Yeah, those components kind of sucked back in the day, and still suck 45 years later. I can see your setting us up for quite a contrast with the Gugificazione to come.
