Does it still love portland if it doesn't have fenders?

I can't fit fenders under the 700C's! I might have to get some strap ons. What are those called raceblades?

I thought bdiddy rolled with 22 ouncers?

Blogger sda said...

I have ridden this bike to get coffe about four times now. It is a purdy fun bike and it fits all my needs its parked outside of work and ready to roll at break time. I was looking for a cheap bike to leave at work an I bought it at the thrift store for $4. It had stem mounted friction shifters, and caliper brakes, with 10 speeds. I cleaned it up and tuned it and ran it the way it was set up to check it out. The setup was just more trouble than it was worth. Rob suggested trying to squeeze 700C's in the bike. It worked so I got hooked up with a new shimano coaster brake hub and a pair of alex adventurer 29er rims from the barn and laced a cheap set of wheels up. I have less than $100 into it. I would like to change out the stem and bars but the stem is an oddball size. The triangle section of the bullmoose bars makes for an ok coffee cup holder for short trips.

Thanks poncho!

Its not really anything that special. Its purdy fun to ride and it seemed like the easiest way to turn a $4 into a $100 bike.

I do like all kinds of bikes though. Even the cheap ones.
