speed Peugeot "townie" bike.
me to the grocery store and the library. Also great fun to ride
with my 6-year old when she's on her own little single speed. Swooping
around parking lots, paved trails, and sidewalks.
a low end Peugeot from about 1985, originally a 12-speed. Bought
her new and held onto her for all these years as I've upgraded my
taste in bikes a couple of times. Lugged cromoloy w/ a cool flat
fork crown. This one got abandoned in the back of the garage for
a while until getting a new life a few years ago as an SS cruiser.
low for Seattle hills, 42/20 or something like that. Stand and stomp
the uphills, coast the downs, and spin spin spin the flats. Pretty
eclectic parts mix, nothing high end but some old friendly type
bits. Suntour XC Expert brake levers mated to the original Shimano
brakes. Campy Mirage triple cranks w/ of course 2 rings removed.
ACS freewheel. Awesome MKS touring pedals w/o any straps to get
in the way. Albatross bars w/ cork grips. Other than that, mostly
original. Don't know why, but sometimes It's just fun to ride a
bike with only one gear!
