My favorite would be my 1933 Mead Ranger Ace. It is fun to ride. What makes it a pleasure to drive is the manual 2 speed Bendix hub that I had installed. It beats a kick back hub any day of the week. Those hubs tend to change gears very easily even when braking. That is why I prefer manual hubs.

Some great riders out there guys! Glad to see everything from a lubed up rat, a frame built-up with modern drivetrain, to a full blown super deluxe original! Let's see some more! Gotta be a rider, no trailer queens here:eek:

I'll keep this girl for the rest of my life.
Nice solid rider and daily commuter.

But I just set this bike up (different saddle now) and am really enjoying the smooth ride and responsiveness of it. It's a 1934 Schwinn tall.
With Velocity p-35s laced to a Morrow rear hub, vintage German racing high flange front.
It's fun to be able to look over fences when you're cutting down the alley too.

Figured its about darn time we bump up this thread! Tho I still love my SamSco dearly and don't see us parting ways any time soon, my go-to bike for the past couple years has been my beloved '38-ish Monark built Hawthorne Twin Bar. Such a roomy and comfy ride, it's the one I rely on most.

I like the topic; I must of been riding my bike whenever this thread was bumped before....
I have had several favorites over the years and it is different depending on how long the ride is, what the path is like, and who I'm riding with...
if I'm going to ride 40 or 50 miles that day, with hills and headwinds, and there will be cyclone coasters there looking at the bikes; I often pick my black 36 Electric, 1 inch pitch gear ratio 22/10 and a ton of cool accessories

My favorite "style rider" is still my Elgin Tiki fenderless wartime Bike. Easy to load on the rack to take wherever I want to ride.

The bike in my collection I love the most is also a favorite rider of mine; and is the biggest transformation I got to do:
1940 Western Flyer heavy duty paper boy bike.

My favorite rider at any given time, is usually the latest bike, I’ve had the pleasure to experience.
At this time, it is my recently resurrected 1918 Excelsior, Auto-Bike.
Very smooth and quiet, and with the higher pressure tires, and that 12 tooth Morrow hub/cog, it requires very little effort to glide down the cycle path.
