    What bike did you ride today?

    CCM = Canadian Cycle and Motor. A sort of Western Auto for our northerly neighbors. While they still do some of both, their big claim to fame is hockey gear, which you used to buy at the hardware store up there...

    Downtube shifter adapter

    I'm overhauling an 80 LeTour and thinking about ditching the twin sticks for downtube shifters. As there are no braze-ons, I wondered if an adapter would be worth it (and if size matters). Thoughts please?

    What bike did you ride today?

    Was able to get out the '78 Traveller III for about 15 miles or so. It's the first time above 40° in a while- good to blow the cobwebs out and I was even able to get it into the big ring for a bit.

    What bike did you ride today?

    This is Zielony (the Polish word for green, which, as she's a Chicago Schwinn and I live here, I figure someone has called her that before).

    Le Tour (1980?)

    Aloha! Picked up a Le Tour on Monday and have been unable to locate straight info regarding country of origin of this one. I've got stone conflicting info on the serial and wondered if anyone can spot the odd with what I have. Also, I dont see the Japanese disclaimer on the frame and wonder if...

    Varsity kick-stand question

    Due to unfortunate circumstances, the kick on my 74 Varsity snapped off, leaving the empty barrel, still welded (if slightly ajar). Question: if I hacksawed or Dremmeled it off, would the integrity of the chain stays be compromised or should I just leave it on? I kinda want it gone, but still...
