I decided that I wanted to get some nice fat tires for her bike (the Peugeot) and my thinking is that this means I need to remove the canti's. So she'll need something for brakes. I settled on the Sturmey-Archer 3-speed hub with a coaster brake.
|I wished that it had come in blue to match the frame, but I can't argue with the price I paid.|
In the meantime I have reassembled both the bottom bracket and the headset. The bottom bracket is like butter but I am wondering if I have gotten some bearings in upside down on the headset. It feels a little tight. We'll see how it is on the road when I am "done" and make an adjustment after that I guess.
And about those fat tires. Doesn't seem like there are a whole lot of options for a 27" wheel. So far I've only managed to find tires that are 1 1/4" ... so not really fat at all. I'll keep looking of course.
My daughter has really caught the bug too. Even with the colder weather here, and soon possibly some snow (although not yet) she still wants to get on her "new" bike. Bless her!
