I guess the question is whether there's anything you'd like to change from your Shift 2.

If not -- if you've tried all the options and decided that the Shift 2 was perfect for your needs -- the...

My grandfather gave this Zodiac to my father for his college graduation in 1970, and he gave it to me for mine in 1996. I'm looking forward to passing it on to my daughter for hers (somewhere around...

We've been perfectly happy with a cheap Retrospec trailer, starting at 18 months. It's definitely heavier than a Burley, and it doesn't turn into a stroller. But for daylong tours and daily...

I work in Chicago sometimes, and when I'm there, I always use Divvy to get around (though I've only ridden a cargo bike there once, when I test-rode a Bullitt at 4-Star). Coming from North Carolina,...

The Larry vs. Harry Bullitt is 46cm wide and 243cm long (https://www.larryvsharry.com/en/bullitt) (18" x 96"), and the electric version weighs 61.7 lbs. I don't know of too many front-loaders that...

I'm somewhat old and very crotchety. I don't believe in index shifters or cassette hubs and currently I don't even have a smartphone. I use a wind-up watch and a fountain pen. I wouldn't use the...

I use Planet Bike cork grips on all my bikes with North Road bars. They're by far the best option for a hot, humid, sweaty climate -- but they do start to look grungy really fast. I don't mind...

I've only ridden in Copenhagen and Aarhus, but it really was a great time. Aarhus has more hills than you'd expect in Denmark. Even if you're set on touring the whole country, you should set aside...

OP: That is definitely an awesome Humber bike. Have fun with it!

Everybody else: this is a great reminder of what the rest of the world sees when they look at our bikes.

Weird. I remember Nature Valley granola bars from at least the early '80s (and can still sing you the TV ad jingle). I was thinking the opposite: in 30 years, granola bars have changed much more...

Sweet! I loved my '80 Tourist. Those bikes feel like nothing else (except maybe a 12' longboard on a glassy, shoulder-height tube).

The rod brakes work just fine unless it's raining, in which...

I don't get the disdain for p-clamps on the seatstays here -- they work just fine. You can get them, with a nice rubber covering, at any hardware store.

No, not too hard, and I'd definitely recommend that you put the shifters in a more convenient place for city riding. I lost track of which kind of handlebars you think you'll finally end up with,...

That is an utterly sweet ride, agmetal!

So, it sounds like the lateral position of the chainring is pretty important (and not adjustable on the Superbe, without a new BB and cranks)...oy. It's...

Wow -- I was just about to sigh petulantly that it's "Sports," not "Sport," but in this case it really is a "Sport"!

That looks very much like the model in the 1986 Raleigh [Cycle Company of...

OK, here's the situation:

My wife and I have both been commuting to work by bike for more than a decade. We both work on a college campus, an easy 1-mile ride from our house.

Now, we've got a...

For regular maintenance, I use SnoSeal rather than Proofide. After buffing it really thoroughly, I haven't had any problems.

For rejuvenating old Brookses, I use Lexol. It does leave a bit of a...
