Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Only the best looking part of my first geared bike for now. Not really ready for prime time yet.

Thanks! 70032, Pretty narrow and very hard touring tire. I have plans of nicer wider tires and drop bars eventually bc the factory bars are big and ridiculous and it feels like riding a harley davidson.

Don't know what I'm going to do with this one. Rides nice but it's obviously one size too small. Traded my Steamroller straight-up for it on a whim when I decided I needed a geared bike on the road. Might get replaced by a geared cross bike but on the other hand I don't want to maintain two cross bikes during the season either. Meh. Been a good bike to train on and build my base up this summer.

1974 Allegro that will probably be moving on -


1982 Mercian Colorado originally built as a team bike for the Harvest/Mercian/The Spoke team out of Denver that produced Marianne Martin, winner of the 1984 Tour de France Feminine.


1972 Liberia Grand Deluxe, exhibit A in the case for "The French Have A Way With Gaspipe."


1976 Puch Royal X, which I remain convinced is my original Puch purchased new in '78, foolishly sold, lost, and then magically surfaced on Facebook Marketplace. I need new pix of this now that I have replaced the Shimano 600EX rear mech with the appropriate SunTour Cyclone that has been hybridized with a not-so-catalog VXs cage.

New old bike...

This was a brown Schwinn World Tourist, until a couple weeks ago. Then I was on a shopping trip, heard a "clunk," and one of my fork ends was broken clean off. While walking the bike home, I remembered that my son had just finished with this frame, and it was hanging on a hook in the garage. I asked him if I could have it.

So it's a 1987 Schwinn Sprint frame, with all of the parts from the brown bike. Everything fit, save for the seatpost, but the Sprint frame had a post. I decided to splurge on a new chainguard -- it was on the pile of spares at the LBS, and I gave them 5 bucks for it.

Hub is a 1962 Sturmey Archer AW, possibly from my mom's Schwinn Breeze. The wheels are my first satisfactory build, and are about 15 years old now, still true.

It rides like a dream. Gearing is perfect for that universal lazy cruising speed, 12 mph or so, and I use the bike for commuting, shopping, etc. The World Tourist was a bit too big for me, so this is an improvement. It's not a super lightweight frame, but I'm hanging a bunch of stuff on the bike anyway.

Black chainguards do seem to go reasonably well with red bikes.

Yuck, fake bikes are so wrong. Without logos you could be fine but taking a cheap no-name frame and literally attempting to pass it off as something it is not is just dishonest. If you must have a Pinarello get one, if you just want a cheap carbon frame go for it but don't try and mix the two. If I have a cool bike just show it for what it is. Honesty is always the best policy

It is not a bad build, Ultegra is good solid componentry and the skinwall tires are excellent. If you didn't have fake logos on there you have the makings of an awesome bike.

Got many, but my '84 Gran Rally is my favorite. It's almost a geared twin to my Wabi. The Wabi will probably have a tubular wheelset this year. Paul hubs with Bicycle Wheel Warehouse's Pure tubular rims and DT Comp spokes is the plan.

The older you get the less you care what year it is. Half the time you can't remember anyway.
