Yes, I'm in Eastern Connecticut. It's rather hilly in my town, which is why I prefer multispeed bikes. Some hardcore cyclists I know bring their bikes out here just for the hills. I have a few English bikes aside from this one, a '61 Raleigh Dynohub Sports, a '65 Hercules with an S-5 hub, a beautiful '71 Triumph with a very tall frame (I can't ride it -5'6"- and will be selling it soon), a '64 Dunelt project, 2 '69 Raleigh Sports project one of which I just disassembled last night and a '69 5 speed Raleigh Sprite with an S-5 hub project. All original with the dual shifters. I have a dynhub for the Sprite, that bike will be the pride of the fleet. Thank you for the compliment and thank you folks for the fine bicycles!
