Finally riding a big boys bike
Hello All,

Here are a couple of pictures of a 1899 Model 44 Tribune Blue Streak Light Roadster . This was similar to Charles "Mile - a - Minute" Murphy's Blue Streak although his cycle was the track racer , I believe. The serial number of this bike is 45929 . Someone was collecting theses at one point. The Tribune color , Robin's Egg Blue, is very similar to Bianchi's Celeste .

The tires are actually tubes only. I would love to find narrow single tube 30 inch tires - unlikely .

You can heat up some Robert Dean 28” smooth tread white single tube tires and stretch them over 30” rims.
I’m doing this on my 30” Stutzman rims.

Actually Glenn, my dad made some 30" tires. The trick would be to figure out which ones they are. The difference was the absence of the nylon cord inside so they could stretch. Next time I'm down at my parents, I'll poke around and see what I can find.
