Check out Halo brand headbands. I love mine.
Yeah I just order one last night, funny I did not need it as much in the summer but is mandatory for the winter..:huh
Bridgestone XO-3. I bought it new in 1994 when Bridgestone bit the dust. I still have it.
Alex Moulton Jubilee. I bought it used in the mid 80s. I still have this one too.
McLean. I bought the frame in the mid 80s and traded it last summer.
My Rivendell Sam Hilborne. It wears studded Nokian Hakkapeliitta tires when the roads are snow and ice covered:
Three more still to come.
Had a Bridgestone RB-0 back 20 years ago....Never should have let it go
Edit: To add- I recall their catalogs. They were beautiful, on rag, recycled paper. Works done by someone who was proud of their work (like their bikes). Perhaps too much quality at a time when they had to compete with mass chinese production
We added a 7 speed internal hub to it to help get us up the hills.
I rode in shorts yesterday.. It was the first cold day we have had in weeks, low 40's.
That guy - Grant Petersen - is still in business... http://www.rivbike.com/
A nice collection, I never knew Bridgestone made bicycles, they stopped making motorcycles in about 1970.
On a sad note Alex Moulton died yesterday http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-wiltshire-20691388
that's truly sad.
the guy who owned 2WTA (Paul) when i worked there had a Moulton bike we'd set up using every Campy Record part we could fit on it, just for giggles. seemed to be a very nice-riding bike; quite a few private pilots bought one to stow in the back of their planes.
Now that's a sexy bike.
Did you watch that video tape? Don't answer the phone...
I bought this Chinese cheapie when I arrived in Phuket over 9 years ago, and have used it most days since. It cost 3,200 Thai baht. Add the basket and lights for another 700 baht, and I had a great commuter. The campus where I teach is just 1 km from my apartment, and I use the bicycle for most trips within a 10 km radius, sometimes a bit more. Beyond that I use my motorcycle; I don't have a car.
Nothing fancy, it has a steel frame, no suspension and just six gears, however the rims are aluminium, and it has good cantilever brakes. It is well used; I am on my fourth set of tyres, and have replaced the chain and sprockets twice.
What's the joke?
Half a foot thick of snow, kind of hard to ride but far from impossible and so much fun even if you are going super slow..
I am thinking of getting a new bike and this time trying an IGH. What say the asylum? Leaning towards a NuVinci 360. Anybody riding one and can "Show us" and tell us? Not trying to hijack but if you got one please show and tell.
