    You do what you gotta do, you know? i learnt to ride a bike on a way too large frame bike, my father screwed on wooden blocks to the pedals so I could reach the controls better lol so, you know ....

    I ride a 2008 Schwinn Coffee. Bought it new online for only $150 then had it assembled and set-up at a local bike shop. Single speed comfort and fun. Not sure if they make 'em anymore.

    Classic, you know the more I think of early 70s impoverished Britain, the more I think we were really just a 3rd world nation. - As my dad would say:

    "Its all Hitlers fault"
    and
    "Eat that food, there's people starving in India"

    Here is my 1986 Peugeot PH501 Ventoux. I just had a nice ride this morning.

    All City has brought that look back in a modern bike but I'm not always a fan of some of those retro look actions and I really dislike bringing back tan sidewalls.

    You also brought back 1970s memories of not just getting used to metric, but the English and French threads in machining.

    157 super boost is stupid imho... pure marketing hype...

    197 is pretty much the fat bike standard now days... fad ?? not if you live in snowcountry... now we can ride year round...

    Admittedly, my bike is pretty flashy with the stripes and orange bar tape, but the first thing that caught my eye was the blue sidewalls. Other cyclists seem to like them, too.
