Today I rode this, not very far mind, still having teething troubles with the model A rear hub, but great fun to ride something from your side of the pond on this side of the pond @Balloonoob.
Still, I've been working on this National for almost 21 months now, it's getting there, slowly!

I rode the Shelby "T" serial number bike yesterday for 41. (no pics) Today out for 40 on the Elgin tanker.

Compared to the super-stiff rigid Shelby I rode yesterday, this softy-pie is really a dreamy & forgiving ride. This fork is stiff laterally, but vertically,(actually, horizontal as it splays out increasing the wheelbase) it is soft, but not too soft. When I load this fork by standing up and sprinting, it is super damp and has a very progressive spring rate which ramps up quickly. There is bit of rebound between pedal strokes, but since the fork only goes through about 65% of its total travel while standing up, there is further travel left if any bumps are hit. Also, it is hard to explain in words, but the fork doesn't spring back too much, but just floats slightly in the middle of the travel stroke when standing up and hammering. The wheelbase lengthens so any hard or uneven hand pressure on the bars doesn't change the straight-line and forgiving feel of the bike. You can pull or push hard on the bars while standing up/sawing the bike back and forth but the bike still tracks straight and true. My full-rigid Shelby roadster is tricky when transitioning from sitting to standing. Any uneven pressure on the bars when standing up has an instant effect on steering. making it a real hand-full. Pics next time of the "T" serial number late 30's Shelby that has more of a true rigid road bike feel. To be continued.....

I actually arrived early for Longmont Bike Night on my Felt Bandit tonight. (Seen here waiting in the shade while people arrive.)

My friend Bob even stopped by before the ride. He has some really nice Schwinns(some purchased from me...) and is just a great guy.

Since he was a big part of the dumpster find from last week and I don't need more bikes right now, I gave him a great deal on an uncommon Schwinn Skipper with Bendix 2 speed in great, mostly original condition.

Then I went home to try a delicious frozen treat I've seen others enjoy after a ride here on the Cabe to see what the deal is.;)
