I love my Crested Butte! Yes, the reach is looooong. This is the era (early-mid 80s) when mountain bike geometry was still based on pre-war Schwinn cruisers. Good swept-back handlebars will alleviate...

Correct, that is a Tektro 559 brake caliper. My Superbe is from 1968, no worries about braze-ons for me.

Thanks for the clarification. It's just that "hipster" is a loaded term these days. It's usually used in a derogatory sense, i.e. no one positively calls someone/something a "hipster". So it's pretty...

I hate talking on the phone. Hate. Didn't like it much before cell phones and the like, either, and yes, I am old enough to grow up using a rotary dial phone.

FYI: Schwalbe is now making their Delta Cruisers in "whitewall" which is really more the cream color they use for the all-cream tires. Still looks good. I put a pair on my Superbe. Now if they only...
