technical advise and encouragement from my brothers, who know about
these things, I decided to build a bike.
3 speed bike is so comfortable, I used the same upright design for
a commuter project. This 1970"s Raleigh Competition frame is very
light. Albatross bars take mountain bike brake levers, and bar-end
shifters. The ride to work is not far, but there is one tough hill,
therefore, a triple crank with mountain bike gearing is used. Tektro
long reach brakes are good for safety. I built the wheels myself.
I just need to find a good way to mount a rear rack. Fenders are
comments/suggestions are welcome, thanks
