Out on the 1933 Colson Flyer today. I went for a longer ride to see how things held together and to see how it rode with the original wheels finally dialed in.
When I found this bike, the wheels had blown-out spokes, were badly bent and totally un-rideable. I put a few hours into straightening up the seldom seen 45mm wide original Lobdell clinchers that were laced to an early ND hubset sans oiler or front hub markings. Very rare wheelset. After getting the two rims round and straight again, (not easy) I laced them up with NOS butted spokes, original nips and the original hubs with re-surfaced races and new cones. Straight and smooth running now! :D This bike still needs a correct straight crank and a Colson stand but I am in no rush to do so. Really fun to ride this thing today. Around 34 miles up and down the coast and got some dirt in too!!

I have been wondering for some time, just how tall are you Pete?

@piercer_99 Thank you kindly sir Piercer...I am 6'-4" 190lbs. .:rolleyes: And Pierce-yes a sweet ride and it is single speed! I was thinking about your single-ringers (and @dnc1 ) while riding this one today. Loved it! The long 3/4 " L-7 seat-post I had to make custom because of my height. The original one I do have is about 4" tall. (Edit: I was thinking while riding that dnc1 if anyone would enjoy riding this old 26" machine as it is so different than his older 1-spd rigids. An American fat bike would be fun for him me thinks. Does anyone else here(while riding) think about a specific Caber who would love to own or ride the bike you are on? I think about it all the time..

I really need to replace the streched chain, it lashes and groans. Certainly cannot be good for the chain wheel and sprocket. At any given position on the chain wheel, 2 links will sit properly, then they start climbing up the leading edge of the next tooth and by the half way point of the wheel they are over the tooth.

Well, have to swap the rear tire, so I will replace the chain then also. Supposed to warm up to the 50s again tomorrow, maybe if I get out of work early I can do it.

ca. 1918 Pierce

I might could get used to the reflective tape on the tire, it sure is shiny in the low light.

I went to the Anza Borrego State Desert Park and checked out some of the crazy metal sculptures out there on my 2015 Surly Pugsley fat bike.

The Surly Pugsely is destined to be a classic. It was the 1st mass produced expedition fat bike.

This bike will take you places that was once unimaginable for riding a bicycle.

@piercer_99 good to see the new saddle and tire rolling down the road.

@West is the Best That park looks really sweet!

Afternoon ride on the new route. Glad to have some daylight this time. :) My bike was running smooth today with a working transfer spring in the rear hub and new nuts on the front hub.

Roadrunner ran across the path and the dry canal in font of me. Mee-Meep Zip Dang!!

Here’s the nasty trax I tried to ride up the other night. Looks so unassuming in the daylight. That’s how I got lulled into it's grip last time... :p

These are some of the “shortcuts” I’ve found that take me through quiet residential back streets...

...back to the canal, that takes me to the other canal, that takes me home. 16 miles on my 1941 Schwinn New World Coaster.

Up and down the cali coast today for 35m. I ran into two Cartel members Ron and Marty who were also out riding so I stopped and visited for quite some time. We could talk for hours but had to eventually move on. Another fine day here on earth.

Nice!
I used to do a lot of riding out in ABDSP.
My ride back then, was a Hannebrink Extreme Terrain.
Another bicycle design, destined to become a classic.
