As the next chapter in my life seems to be organically developing there has been a few bikes passing through my work stand. The common theme is small bikes for ladies that do not have wacked out geometry angles, more on this later (just re-read that, it is the angles on the bikes, not the ladies). My wife is 5’3″ and in the quest for champagne on a beer budget I have managed to keep a list of the bikes from the past that can be refurbished to suit. The latest bike in the stand is a near NOS 91 Bridgestone RB-T size 50cm, this one is for a friend:
All this one still needs is a touch-up on the wheels and it is ready to go. That, and I may switch out the tires to some wider Pasela rubber. unfortunately the original Avocet tires were not serviceable. Yes, I know the garage is a mess, as always a work in progress.
On other notes, I am hoping to pull this
ride off this weekend, time and heat wave conditions will tell the tale. Either way there should be some good pictures next week
Have a fun and safe holiday weekend. Play outside and enjoy your family!
