My bikes and bikes I like
I have updated this page, but it is still not a complete listing of my bikes or the bikes I have reviewed on this blog. You can search the blog for full posts with more information about all the bikes listed below.
My 1936 Raleigh Sports. Giddy-up you old nag!
My 1996 Trek USPS Carbon Road Bike watching as Lance and the boys climb the Col d'Izoard, France. I bought this bike used, set up as a time trial bike. I restored it to a classic road racing bike. It weighs a tad over 18 lbs with nothing more than Dura-Ace stuff on it. It remains faster than I will ever be, so why upgrade.
- If I could only keep on bike this would be it. A true all-rounder modeled after the venerable Bridgestone XO-1. The bike is built up as a commuter in this photo. With Roadish geometry, a Rivendell fork crown and room for 26 inch mtb tires, I can go anywhere on this bike. It has been well used over the years, ridden hard and put away wet. The color is Pale Primrose, which is a vintage Jaguar color.
- Liz’s step-through- I built this frame. I carved hearts in all the lugs. Shimano 8spd Nexus hub with roller cam brakes and Mafacs in the front.
- Electra Amsterdam-This is my daughter Frankie riding across a frozen lagoon in Washington Park after we went ice skating.
1984 Trek 620 mods include generator hub, Lumotoec light, Planet Bike Cascadia Fenders, Nittio stem and Bar, 700c wheelset
Our 53cm Workcycles Oma. Everything a boy or girl could want in a city bike.
My 90s era lugged Schwinn Schwinn Super Sport- I added most of the features found on European commuter bikes to this Schwinn: AXA frame lock, Pletscher double kickstand, SON generator hub w/ Lumotec LED headlamp, full fenders, chainguard, upright stem and bars, rear rack, Batavus pannier and color coordinated coffee cup
The Vanmoof No.3 is a fastish, uprightish, stylish commuter bike from the Dutch.
Troy Courtney built all-lugged, silver-brazed single speed mountain bike. I asked Troy to paint the bike orange with the old Schwinn vibe. The colors are pear, and I think you will agree, Troy nailed it with this paint.
