I won't be doing any super-technical ride reporting as it pertains to bike
performance. I simply don't have the vernacular for it. I have no idea
what 'tunr-in' is. I don't know what 'staid', 'tame', 'reluctant',
'nervous', 'willing', mean in any objective sense. I feel like
descriptions like that tell me a lot more about the person writing them
than the machine they are on. If I'm going to talk about me, I'll do it
Anyway, here is Bike #3.
This is my 1985 Schwinn Tempo, converted to 650B and Rinko. I call it
"Tinko". I want to get the 200 in on this bike early, so I can get it out
to Ed Litton for some frame mods. The 200 miles will confirm my final
decision that I want to make the mods. Of all my bikes, this one looks the
most like a classic road bike and fits like a classic road bike.
