Le Tour Luxe

Don’t get me wrong, I love my weather bike, my aluminum Bottecchia and my carbon fiber Fuji but nothing gets me stoked like riding one of my old steel Schwinns.  Yes I have 3 of them and this little mid-80s beauty needs a new rear derailleur but as I was cleaning the basement (full of bikes) it occurred to me that maybe the problem isn’t too many bikes – it’s not enough time to ride them!

  1. My regular bike is all steel and then I have a 1980 Raleigh Record (Back in the days when they were still made in England) that I converted to a single speed…..freewheel, not fixie. Love riding them both!
