I’ve only used it for rides down to the café on the weekend—and to go to church on Sunday (just playing!) I’ve taken it on the road for a couple 80 and 90 mile rides and its been sweet.
Phil,owner of Pima Street Bicycle will let me keep it at the shop for a few months until a buyer arrives. The thing about this bike is that it’s a 69 cm frame. It is Enormous, huge, gigantic—even a bit too big for me to ride. My hope is that some one out there will find this bike and it will be the steel machine they’ve been dreaming of.
I recently paid a small fortune to have that Schwinn Twin I brought back from Tulsa made ready to ride. That old tandem takes up a lot of room in the garage, Gentle Reader, I must say!
Finally, I’ve no emotional attachment to this bike. It’s a good bike and if it was all I had, then I’d be happy—but my hope is that the right man or woman will find this old Raleigh and put in the miles it was made for.
