Big Red

Here's my bike again - 1981 Raleigh (see 1st posting...bottom of the page: older posts).


  1. love the single chain ring up front, gives it a nice clean look.

  2. Yeah, realistically, I only want 3 gears: 1)get moving 2)go faster, and 3)go fastest. I like to be able zip off the mark and brake really hard, which is why the fix thing isn't for me. But I envy the simplicity of the single speed (visually). I'm going to investigate 3 speed hubs; still involves a cable, but no clutter around the back wheel. Also, I'm not sure what sort of ratios are available.
    I'm really keen to find out about the possibilities of concealed cabling.
