Elgin, JC Higgins, J.C. Higgins, They're All Sears bikes, and all freaking awesome!!  I love that the Firestone bikes are all the same frames too... It's too bad there isn't more information out there about these bikes as they totally kick ass.  Yes, they're not quite as good quality as a Schwinn, but they're absolutely serviceable and personally I find they fit taller riders a bit better.  One really could ask why AREN'T these bikes ruling the world about now?!?

Spring Is Here!

Weather is a fickle beast around here, but we've been blessed with some damn good stuff lately!

Rides 'o the last few weeks...

The south side of Vancouver has been seeing a lot of action lately... 45th across Cambie kicks butt - 54th is the lower limit on that side to still have a route out, at least so far.  Looks like there's going to be a lot more exploring on that side of the ridge in the not too distant future!  Ravine Park between 33rd and 36th has been a feature of a few runs lately too - definitely a good time.

Got a JC Higgins I'm building up now, it's going to get the wheel set of my Manhattan (Sturmey Archer SRC3 rear 3 speed coaster hub, and my SRAM VT-5000 front drum brake), plus the Sun Race shifter I've still got in the package from way back... I think I'm going to have fun with this one!

Lost my case for my camera, d'oh... That means I can't take it out till I get another one, don't want any smashy smashy... But soon it will be replaced and the images will flow!!

That's it... Just a quicky... See you at Rod's Ride this Wednesday!!
