'Enthusiast cyclists' didn't exist when I was growing up in the '60s and early '70s. At least there weren't any that I ever saw in the far-outer 'country' suburbs of Cleveland..

Simply gorgeous! I couldn't bring myself to actually ride such a pretty steed -- It'd have to hang on a wall as art!!!

Oh, and keep a lookout for a early Cyclone GT rear derailleur. The VGT Luxe is a bit more 'robust', but the early Cyclone is next to perfection...

Keep perusing the Classifieds here in the C&V section of BF for a spare freewheel. Personally, I like the SunTour Winner Ultra series that fit the six cogs in the same total spacing as the original...

They handle triples just fine, as others have mentioned above. No difference front- or rear. They're both the same. I've had mine on this bike since November of '76! I changed from double- to...

Back in '80, I was nearing the middle of my OH- to WI- and back ride on the leg from Kenosha to Madison. I had stopped at a small town diner about 2pm for a late lunch/early supper because I didn't...

I rode Hilly Hundred a looong time ago - when my bike only had 2x5 gearing, with a 14-28 five-speed freewheel and 51/39 chainrings. I survived.

I can't find my '77 patch, but still have the one...

Had a pedal bearing let go halfway through a Century. Well, at mile 65. Too far gone for a roadside repair, so I had to take the Ride of Shame in the SAG wagon. Oh, I took crap from the guys in my...

If you were to put the same wheelset on each bike, that would eliminate that variable. With a properly-tuned and properly-tensioned wheelset, just about ANY frameset feels more 'sprightly',...

I rarely use the big ring on any of my bikes since I can get most of the gear range I prefer with either the middle chainring on my triples, or the inner ring of my doubles. All of my road-ridden...

My Old Man built many of his audio sets because to get the latest/greatest, you had to build your own. Including the HH Scott kit 350 tuner and LK-72 amplifier combo that was passed down to me when...
