Two towns over to the farmers market in Collinsville, CT for produce, meat, and brunch. Farthest I’ve gone on the ‘55 Vette. Stock 18T cog on the Sturmey, 35 lbs on the rack, and another 85 tied to the axle (10 less on the way there). I was running 55lbs in the tires, and rear felt like it was deflating. I won’t say it was a walk in the park, but we made it, and I’m a better person because of it.

The verdict is in: As I suspected, an old middleweight Schwinn is really all the bike I need.

Didn't ride it far. Looks like the sweetheart sprocket has to go. The extra washer needed for the chain ring to clear the frame causes chain misalignment with the rear cog. I do have another smaller chain ring - just had my '' heart " set on the sweetheart sprocket. Boooooo.

Rode the Northern Rail Trail today,on the '48 Western Flyer. Beautiful scenery, this bike rides very well with the new tires. Through the tunnel into another dimension. Checked out an excavator. Stopped at Potter Place Railway station and General store. Then hit a covered bridge. Then out of tunnel and back to reality. Awesome afternoon for a ride.

Goat head got my front tire. I could hear it tapping against the concrete. When the steering started to feel “weird” I knew something was up. I stopped under a light, pulled out the goat head and heard the rest of the air come rushing out. Didn’t take long to get it rolling again with a spare tube and tools under good light. Good spot to stop.

Fun rolling home on my semi-flaccid hand pumped front tire, getting pushed by a tail wind.
