Got bumped by a grand am today while riding my Puch . I was passing a gas station on a sidewalk when some young guy nose into me while getting set to enter the stopped traffic near the intersection. I was going slow and so was he and my pedal took most of the contact. The guy said "my bad", wasn't paying attention. I saw no damage so I rode off. No injury or wipeout but a block later I noticed my rear rim got a little tweeked . At least I had a spoke wrench in my little cargo pouch to true it up enough to ride back to my car.

That bites. But could have been worse!

As reported further up the thread, I put my bike computer on the Pirate Bike (or Green Pearl - haven't decided yet) on Sunday, after having estimated that I was riding about 45 km a week. Well, with 1 day to go before the reset, I've already passed 90 km. I had no idea I was riding that far. No big rides, just lots of little trips, most of which I'd say are under 4 km one-way.

I'll report back if it does.
No, I have something else in mind.

Metro, I would try putting grease on the bottom bracket, the inside of the crank arm, and the bolt. That might work. or look on www.bikeforums.net I know the answer is in that site.

Here's a pic of my OLD (1988) Brike. Very rare up here, I don't know about other areas. She's just a single speed, but I've got a 3-speed rim I'm putting on it. I'll probably end up selling her as she's a bit small for me now.

Nice. I really like the simplicity of it without a bunch cables running everywhere and less than the 100' of chain typical of rear wheel driven recumbents. How do you like the handling of it?

1973 Paris Sport in the trunk of the Blue Box



It's not a commuter bike. I mainly ride on my lunch hours, evenings, and weekends for fun and fitness.

Although it has the same gearing as when I bought it during high school, plenty of parts have been replaced over the years.

Since you turn by leaning, it can be a bit of a hassle in tight confines, and she can be a bit unstable over 30 mph. Other than that, very comfy to ride! Not to mention all the looks and questions I get when I ride it around!
