    Podium!!!11!! Ok, I hope I’m the last person to ever do that here. I think flat bars are wrong only if the bike has sidepull calipers (and isn’t a BMX bike). Cantis, centerpulls, discs exempt a bike from drop-bar tenspeedsnobbery (TM).

    Jimmy you get the podium for the entire site! and yes I hope you are the LAST person do that too:).

    I like your flat bar class exemptions, but my flat bar issues dig deep. I’m planning a post to explain it all, so stay tuned.

    Thanks for de-flowering my comment section!

    I still have mine that I purchased new those many years ago, only I think I purchased mine in 1973 could have been 1972. Same color and decals. Original handlebars, misplaced the pump that came with it, still have the leather saddle but have modernized for comfort. A number of components have been replaced through the years. Finally had to replace the real derailluer and just recently a couple spokes have broken.
