Sturmey Archer Duomatic

Hipsters who ride bicycles do have one good idea. You don’t always need more gears.

Sturmey Archer Duomatic 2 speed Kick Shift with Coaster

It is a Sturmey Archer S2C, two-speed kick shift hub with coaster brake. I picked red because it would look hot.

I’m waiting for a rim to arrive so I can lace it up. This is going on my ’70 Hercules. Rim is a silver Sun CR-18 in the standard 26″ x 1 3/8″ (BSD 590mm) size.

Dress Up

How does that saying go? Dress for the job you want, not the job you have?

All dressed up

Of course, I don’t normally wear a tie. I have to consider that on any given day, the likely hood of me crawling underneath a desk to pull cables is pretty high, I don’t want my nice clothes to get all dusty.
