Heart rate ànd fasting

I've observed that my heart rate varies a lot even when I try to hold the work load rate in Watts and cadence constant. My heart rate will typically start out at around 100 bpm, and then creep up...

Kentucky

Beer and wine are very high carb content. Bourbon is health food? Brought to you by Wild Turkey and the Commonwealth of KY.

Silver socks

Silver drystat are my go to socks for camping, bicycling, or motorcycling. I still prefer wool for cool weather hiking. The drystat socks can be pricey, but I have bought them on closeout sales.

Nasalcrom

Nasalcrom works as a preventative. First take a hot shower and scrub face, neck and eyesockets well with a washcloth. Try to remove all allergens and dry with a fresh mildew few towel. Use...

The knee is so complicated and many things can inflame the bursa. For those of us just barely over fifty it may be wise to be careful in choosing a doctor. A number of procedures are available to...

I've had some fluid on the knee for months. The condition has improved a lot since an accident in June. For the first two months my knee was nearly twice the normal size. The fluid is barely...

I wonder if a longer pull starter cord routed through eyelets on the frame might work? You would need to be careful that the cord is routed so that it cannot tangle on the pedals, etc. Some petrol...

I would not need 700C wheels, but Sixer had linked to a set of 700C wheels with a 3 speed hub, so that's an option. The front wheel does not need to be touched. A 27 inch rear with 3 speed hub...

Thanks sixer:

What did your used 25 inch commuter sell for if you don't mind my asking? I had given up on finding a tall 3 speed, so I bought a used 24 inch Suburban ten speed. The bike is...

The spider approach seems like the ideal solution. I'm pretty sure that neither the front nor rear derailleurs would like the triple front chain ring much. When the rear and front derailleurs are...

Vintage Schwinn rocks as usual with a wealth of good info! I discovered that my bike has the GT120 rear derailleur already. Perhaps the bike already has the 32 tooth rear sprocket as well. I did...

Old Schwinn Continental, Suburban, Varsity Chainrings

I bought a 1975 Schwinn Suburban and took it for a ride today. I was having a blast until I came to a hill and immediately realized that I was either way out of shape, or the bike was geared much too...

Yep. I am finding my health food kick a bit inconvenient. My bike has a rack, so food does not get sweaty, but it is perishable just the same. I used to eat the food bars too, but as your list...

The only liquid I take is water, since most of the other options have sugar, or overly sweet artificial sweetener. I guess I could drink heavy whipping cream, but that seems disgusting. I've...

Portable Clyde Food?

I'm looking for suggestions for food to take while biking.

Some examples:

Canned salmon. High in omega 3 fats and protein. Looks kind of like what was swept off of the cannery floor, but...

The issue with aluminum alloys is that they do not have a clear elastic limit. One can make a spring out of steel or titanium, but you don't see aluminum springs. Good engineering design takes this...

Conversions

Tall ten or 5 speeds are much more plentiful than tall 3 speeds. One interesting bike is the Schwinn Le Tour tourist. These had large lugged brazed frames, aluminum bars and rims, and light...

Azor Jersey

I'm not stuck on Schwinn or any other brand. I've not found many Fuji or Panasonic 3 speeds. I did notice a Ross Eurospprt 3 on eBay. The brazed lug frame looked interesting, but it's a 23 inch...

Wow. Thanks for all the info. I really like Continentals because that was the bike my Scoutmaster had back in 1977. I had an AMF Scorcher at the time that was beat to death. We swapped bikes one...

Old fashioned sounds good to me. I think I know what you mean about short gearing. When I was young I seldom stopped pedaling. Downhill stretches were an opportunity to upshift and see how much...

That DL-1 looks wonderful. Does anyone know if the 28 inch wheels on the Raleigh Tourist are the same BSD as a 700C?

That looks like it just left the showroom. Not for sale? Does anyone have an opinion on the Columbia Tourist 3? I've located one, but I don't know the frame size yet.

Unfortunately I may need to wait a while before a 71 Suburban shows up on Craigslist, and the good riding weather is tempting me to get a bike right away.

Thanks for all the replies. Schwinn made the 3 speed 27 inch wheel Suburban in 1971 only according to the catalogs. I assume they did not sell well, and the 5 speeds are much more common. I have...

3 Speed for Tall Riders

I'm about 6' 5", returning to cycling, and looking for a bike. For various reasons (large frame, 27" tires, comfy seat), I've decided that a 1971 Schwinn Suburban might be a good choice, but 3 speeds...
