Here’s my PUCH Austro Daimler “Alpina” weekend cruiser geared for
the mostly flat Silicon Valley. This was originally a 10 speed with
drop bars. I fell in love with the frame and set about converting
it into a single-speed, using the frame, original Dia-Comp side
pull brakes, and the original Zefal frame pump. It now sports a
new Tange headset, Sugino 48t crankset with matching bottom bracket,
Surly 18t cassette cog, Surly spacer kit, and Continental Gatorskin
700 x 25c tires mounted on a Shimano WH-R500 wheelset. Aluminum
handlebars are generic mounted on a “Custom” stem with Shimano mtb
levers. I love the look with the shellac’d cork grips, VO leather
chainstay protector, VO Baguette bag and Crane brass bell.
this site! Thanks for the inspiration.
