Twin Raleighs


Good morning from Atlanta. Below is a pic of my 74 Raleigh Sports. Next to it is the same exact bike. I just happened to park next to this bike while visiting this downtown office building for a sales call. 3-speeds are becoming more and more popular in Atlanta. Four or five years ago, bicycle racks would be flooded with fixies. Not true anymore. People are steady trading in their fixed cogs for bicycles with more character and comfort.

Sadly it does seem that three speed mania has come to town. I used to see them for sale everywhere for $20, now they're over $100.
