Thank you for the feedback. I have the same impression of the bike and the same guess about use of the name, though I've never heard of DIN. I will stay clear of this poor little step-child.

650b wheels on a 650c bike?

Hi,

Sorry this must be a very basic question, but I'm wondering if a 43cm junior bike from the nineties with 650c tires would be able to take 650b wheels.

Thank you.

Hi from a Newbie,

I have a chance to get a 1975 Raleigh Super Course MK II. The frame is a Reynolds 531, and it's in good shape for its age, but it does have what I would call rust pimples on the...
