Finally riding a big boys bike
Thanks to the generosity of another CABEer (and a bit of cash on my part), I am thrilled to have this beautiful example of a Tribune as part of my collection. Serial #43241. Also want to thank Blue Streak for his generous responses to my questions and for sharing a PDF of the 1899 Tribune catalog with me. (He will be the next owner of the bike if I ever decide to sell it....which I have NO plans to do.) Side note: Some bikes have a little "extra" emotional attachment. i.e. I am a 7th generation Pennsylvanian. I lived on the family farm as a child and spent many summers there when my grandparents owned it. My aunt and uncle own it now and I still visit regularly. The farm has been in the family since 1789. This bike was made in Erie, PA...about 60 miles from the family farm.

Stunning bicycle Ron! Congratulations. I was very close to buying it. On a trip a cross country trip back in November I wanted to visit the bike in person; anyway I never got the call back I was promised. The mad money end up getting spent on the Knoll spring frame so it all worked out the way it should have. I am very glad to hear it went to you.

Thanks for the kind response. For what it’s worth, we’d been talking about this one for quite a long time. Thank you again Brant!
