I have been searching for the perfect wheel for some time now.  While I love my Raleigh, Daisy Belle, it really doesn't fit me.  My problem is that I am too short for most step over ladies bikes and…Continue

There is some great film of people riding rare early bicycles in the first 20 minutes of this 1992 film.https://youtu.be/Cut_sYkNcIM

Great bicycling outfit.

Oh and I found out I can put my 2.5 inch tires on the same rims as my 1.75 inch tires. Saved me about $200 so I don't have to have the Nuvincci hub laced onto another rim.

So the "Bird" frame is at the welders, getting the pieces welded on so I can have real back breaks.  I have a brand new front fork already set up for front breaks and I have purchased the cantilever breaks. I am going to fetch some new inner tubes and put the new 2.5 inch tires on the rims either today or tomorrow.  Things are moving apace as they say.

Lady Naomi, That is a nice kit for the bicycle.  It does have a bit more class than my holding the bottle in my left hand while bicycling.

I promised you my bicycle but instead I bring you this old Raleigh converted into a bar! (Owned by Alegro Music Bar, Trikala, Thessaly.)

This video is a little hokey and the bikes are uncomfortable...don't get me started on the helmets...but if you are looking for good information about riding in traffic, this is the best I have come across in a long time.  Many scorchers and mountain climbers seem to have forgotten about folks who ride upright and slow.https://youtu.be/5s5hJhLBUec

I have JUST found out that a chain of auto parts stores in my area will be selling customs-mixed car paints IN SPRAY CANS starting in a couple weeks.
SO, if you are restoring an old bike, or want a custom paint color, these folks can do it.

The Taunton MA store is already doing it, and my local Plymouth MA store will be doing it as of the 30th IIRC.
