    It's been a while...

    While I didn't post very often, I used to be quite active on the forums here. I hope to come back on a more regular basis.

    Mini Velo (ALTON)

    I saw one online that had a chromoly frame. Aluminum frames make we weary. I am probably over thinking the whole idea as materials are usually very good quality. I'm just old school I guess.

    Mini Velo (ALTON)

    I love me a mini velo. But at my large size, I am afraid I would look like a bear on a tricycle. :(

    Bicycle Helmets ????

    I think it is also important to note, that the United States has more cars per capita than almost any other country on Earth. And, most of those are giant SUV's and not some little Peugeot. The fact of the matter is helmets prevent injuries, period. Athletes, construction workers, race car...

    I bet you can't ride my bike!

    That was you? I was there and saw you. Too bad I didn't know it was a fellow RRBer.

    Black Crown Tattoo WHER R U ANSWR yur PMs!

    This is why requesting funds as a "gift" should always raise a flag. I will gladly pay a few extra bucks to cover Paypal fees to have accountability built into the transaction. I will NEVER purchase from someone who demands payment as a gift. Mark up your asking price a few bucks if you are...

    I like the design, but not the font. Too surfy (is that even a word?) and not enough old school. Looks like it belongs on a Paul Frank girls bike. Most of the headbadges and stuff from our old bikes have more traditional fonts with serifs and some ornamentation. I'm just a big design nerd though...

    Tote Cycle Folding Bike?

    I have one of these! I love this bike. It is definitely worth cleaning up. Do a three piece crank conversion and put lightweight wheels on it and rock and roll!

    What's your favorite pedal?

    That's funny, I was looking at that last night. I can't seem to find anything that screams "cruiser". I like the old block pedals, but nice originals are expensive and hard to find and I don't want to run BMX stuff on my old bike if I can avoid it. I may have to start making my own... :D

    What's your favorite pedal?

    My buddy and I were talking about old school pedals and we really couldn't think of any "cool" pedals. Were they all just basic ones that came with the bike? Was there any kind of aftermarket for pedals?

    Teach The Children, Well ?

    I wouldn't even touch on maintenance, except not to ride on flat tires. I would focus on basic safety, like helmets, riding on the correct side of the road, lights and reflectors, and how to cross safely. Engage them on their level. Bring in a really cool bike for display. Take a kids bike and...
