@ Papa... I concur the fat bike tires are a lot of fun. They are very popular and 90% of local Ebike sales have 4 inch wide tires. Been there with those effen goat heads. We spent two months in Mesa Az. I was riding on the sidewalk due to construction. I decided to take the grass around a group of pedestrians. Big mistake...eight goat heads in the front tire and two in the back...Those things are insanely sharp.

@ Bas...I had a homebuilt cargo bike with a huge basket up front. Steering got really sketchy with a 24 of beer up front. Two big pannier bags on the rear rack worked much better...

@ Saabsonnetguy... I don't see a problem here. I would love to have a very early bike with a skip tooth chain ring. There's a few in the city running on the original wooden rims. Love your collection and your first bike is my clear favorite. If you still have a Saab Sonnet feel free to post a pic. I haven't seen one in person for at least 25 years...

Here's some vintage bikes that I picked up and all of them went to collectors. Unfortunately my buddy who owned a demolition business passed away in May and I lost my main source of old bikes. Cleaning out his yard took weeks. He also left behind a collection of thirty thousand vinyl records...
