not much difference between this and the Gary Fisher bike. The
hubs are the same great ultra-rare Union drum brakes. The bars
are Triumph T-100/Tiger models from the 60s. This build is based
on one of my bikes I had in 1977 and at that time I still wasn't
liking triple chainwheels - same as now. The brakes work really
good on this bike, even with the little levers.
are French Nervar arms - interchangeable with TA but a little
beefier - used on Schwinn touring bikes in the 70s, Shimano spindle
adapter, MKS pedals from '79 as are the Ukai 2.125 alloy rims.
The whole bike must weight 50 pounds but that's what we rode up
all the hills in sight.
in a 50s Schwinn and the thumbshifters NOS Stingray 5-speed items.
are Suntour Cyclone, Brooks B-72 saddle.
half a dozen bikes like this for friends and customers back in
the 70s. A few can be seen on Charlie
Kelly's website there's a link on my History
page under the photo of a blue DX. That's the original bike this
is based on - I just couldn't go with the steel crankset on this
one (or the white feathers).
