Too many extra bikes around this place, and a good number of them are orange. I’m not sure how that happened. But if you like orange stuff, man, today is your lucky day ‘cuz these things are priced to sell…
First up, a 3 speed steel town bike, used for the San Diego show in 2008. It has an Igleheart fork, handmade (by me) rack, Nitto bars. New Sturmey-Archer 3 speed coaster brake hub, White Industries high flange front hub, DT rims, Sugino track crank. Brooks ‘aged’ saddle, Nitto seatpost and stem. The logos are painted on, and the rack and bars are painted to match each other.
This bike is built for comfort, with flex in all the right places, and cushy tires.
Frame measures 61cm x 61cm, standover is about 32″. If you are between 5’10” and 6’2″, you’re in the right range–the top tube is longer to make up for the swept back bar.
It’s in excellent condition, some minor scuffs/scratches, but just fine mechnically. 100 miles max on the odometer.
