    Tad, petritl, got his wife into it by letting her run the ebay parts-out hobby business. When she saw the money coming in side, she let go of the money going out side.

    62? Raleigh Sports with 'Lenton' Dual Drive

    https://www.sheldonbrown.com/retroraleighs/catalogs/Raleigh-Catalog-1962.pdf here's the catalog listing the hybid drive on a '62 Lenton Convertible (Raleigh's trade name for the hybrid drive). It's little effort to put this drive on any 115mm OLD, 3/8" axle Raleigh which includes every bike...

    62? Raleigh Sports with 'Lenton' Dual Drive

    great acquisition - a tour-worthy tourist I believe you have the '61/62 factory hybrid drive - definitely wouldn't trust Raleigh catalogs to list all paint offered

    What bike did you ride today?

    Great ride yesterday on the Alamodome sprint with my '57 Raleigh. Didn't take any photos, and didn't even go for coffee - everybody was visiting out of town relatives. Got out today with Stevo and MA, riding the lower Salado Creek greenway - the best and most remote-feeling bike trail our city...

    Raleigh Record Shifting Woes

    the "click" rear is called indexing, c. late '80s. I can get my bike perfectly tuned on the bike stand, get out on the road, and it won't reach a gear I had just adjusted it to shift (all friction). My recommendation is open the adjusting screw wider so the FD is moving the chain farther in...

    Pre-war French road bike L'Eroica project -- need advice on parts

    the shifter with detentes has the disadvantage compared to basic friction that you can't over-shift and adjust back. That might be worth a try - go beyond the notch, finish the shift, and go back to the notch. One thing I always do when I'm adjusting my derailleur cables is, on the slack side...

    My time has been taxed, busy with work, ending another year with my main conservation commitment https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/brown-trout-graduate-hs-as.152492/ And I have nothing to post that can rival those great Yosemite photos on the last few pages. But a noteworthy ride today, a new...

    Lambert identification

    It's the dumbest design ever - taking the part of the bike that functions more as a shock absorber than any other part, and making it out of a material with no endurance limit and with inherent manufacturing flaws. With continued use, they are guaranteed to crack at some point in time. Even...
