General discussions on Wheelmen topics. / CT Wheelmen 10 Mile Tour #3 2018
« Last post by AlanPonder on September 12, 2018, 06:03:48 PM »
We're headed to Norwalk, CT for a 10 Mile Tour! This will be the 3rd for the year. These rides have been very enjoyable. We've ridden East Haven, and Milford so far. We usually have around 15 riders. All are invited. Drag that old bike out and come ride with us. This is the area longtime Wheelman member Jim Miller frequently rides. We will meet 9am Sunday Sept 30th 9am at 1 Fullin Rd., Norwalk, CT.

Sorry. I see you posted pictures and it is a Model C. The Chain guard is wood and metal.

The seats differ on the different models. Which model do you have?
It would be helpful to post a picture of the seat you have.

You lucky dog! What a great and beautiful bike. You'll come up with a seat to match if you are patient! :)

Here's a few pictures of the Hickory I picked up about a month ago.  I do not find any identifiers, it seems rideable, tires are hard rubber with a few flat spots.  I love how the chain works its way to the rear brake through the frame, the brake works.  I have a repo seat in route but the real deal would be great.

I'm not saying it's not a racing wheel, but I'm curious why you suspect that it is one.  A 32-spoke wheel with a wood rim and fixed hub is pretty standard for a TOC bike.  The sprocket does have some holes drilled for lightness, but still looks a bit chunky, and its 8 teeth would only indicate a moderately high gear for the period.  Most rear wheels may have had 36 or even 40 spokes, but 32 is not unusually few.  Even if the wheel did show extreme characteristics regarding weight, gearing, etc., remember that--then as now--American producers pushed "sporty" products on the general public.  Maria Ward, a popular TOC cycling author, reminded her readers in 1896 that American bicycles "evolved on the racetrack and for the conditions determined thereon."

I have never seen such an asymmetrical tangential lacing pattern.
Is it a clue to the origins of this example or was it the work of someone who wanted to try something different. The slotted cranks were used on some English HTS so maybe it is English? It almost looks like the cranks and pedals belong on an ordinary....
