    How do you warn/notify walkers on a bike trail/ride?

    I see them on a Sundays sometimes in very large groups hog the road, hold up traffic, and go as far as holding a traffic light for the group which is illegal. Don’t dare say something to them cuz it will get ugly so I avoid them completely. I pull over and let them go by on their way.

    New Departure "D" coaster brake help

    Yea sounds like maybe the hub is internally damaged? I just got thru cleaning and lubing the model D in my 41Columbia and is running smooth as silk. I freaked when I had the hub apart and saw these ugly drag marks running along the center of the hub but turned out to be a thin layer of dried...

    New Departure D lubrication

    Done. Rides super smooth and stops quietly on a dime. Greased the bearings and used 30w automotive oil on the discs and rest of the parts.

    Stumbled on this year old thread. Wonder what happened to the bike. I would have kept it in the family for sentimental reasons. The OP hasn’t been back since.

    What bike did you ride today?

    Hope all you dads out there are having a great time on this Fathers Day. Went this late morning for a short ride on my 80 Suburban but had to cut the ride short cuz the heat felt like in the triple digits. Great time spent with the family.

    New Departure D lubrication

    Got my ND model D clean and ready for assembly and lubrication. I read to use grease on the bearings and 30w oil on the discs. Then once assembled to add the oil thru the filler cup which I’m guessing will lubricate the inside shell walls and the rest of the parts or do I add a very thin layer...

    Crank removal help, please...

    Glad you got it off. I use an adjustable wrench and position it in close relation to the crank arm which I use for leverage grabbing both the wrench and crank arm at the same time.
