1964 Monark El Camino Cruiser Bicycle

Check out this vintage bike, a 1964 Monark El Camino woman’s bicycle. Monark Silver King bicycles started in Chicago in 1934. In 1956 they were bought by Huffman (Huffy). So this particular bike was manufactured by Huffy. Quite a neat looking bike. A nice single speed bike with a coaster brake, really reliable. Also hasContinue reading “1964 Monark El Camino Cruiser Bicycle”

1973 Schwinn World Voyageur

After posting about the World Traveler, I really wanted to find a World Voyageur to post about, and here it is.  The Traveler is a great bike, but this goes to the next level.  It has chrome in all the right places (fork end, head tube, dropouts).  The Shimano Crane GS rear derailleur is consideredContinue reading “1973 Schwinn World Voyageur”

1972 Schwinn World Traveler Opaque Green

Now this is a really neat bike.  I love the early Schwinn Le Tours, and this is its predecessor and a nice bicycle.  In 1972 Schwinn started importing bikes from Japan with the World Traveler and World Voyageur.  For some reason these bikes never even made the catalog.  I’m guessing they wanted to see howContinue reading “1972 Schwinn World Traveler Opaque Green”

2016 Trek Precaliber 24 Mountain Bike Girls

This is my younger daughter’s bike.  Trek never seems to disappoint, and this has been a great bike.  It was previously my nieces, so it has some miles on it between the two.  So far, no issues.  Only issue is that she’s almost too big for it.  Check it out: Color is black trek pearl. Continue reading “2016 Trek Precaliber 24 Mountain Bike Girls”

2017 Trek Verve 1 Woman’s Hybrid Bike Crystal White

My wife’s very nice hybrid bike.  We have taken this one on many a family bike ride and it has traveled with no issues so far.  This is the woman’s version of the bike in crystal white.  21 speeds with Shimano drivetrain.  Have a look at some pictures: Frame is Alpha Gold Aluminum and duoTrapContinue reading “2017 Trek Verve 1 Woman’s Hybrid Bike Crystal White”

1981 Schwinn Super Le Tour Summercloud White

Because I like my 1974 Le Tour so much, I decided to pick up a Super.  I like the combo of the white paint and red decals.  This one has some of the improvements I wondered about like downtube shifters, alloy rims, and 12 speeds.  It’s about 26lbs, so 5lbs lighter than my 74.  It’sContinue reading “1981 Schwinn Super Le Tour Summercloud White”

2005 Trek 4500 Mountain Bike

This is my friend Glen’s really nice 2005 Trek 4500 with blue/black paint.  We believe it to be all stock and it came with some nice components.  It is a 24 speed with 3 in the front and 8 in the rear.  Rear derailleur is a Shimano Deore and the front is Acera.  For suspensionContinue reading “2005 Trek 4500 Mountain Bike”

2021 Giant Talon 2 Mountain Bike Red Clay

I’ve been doing a lot of mountain biking lately, so I decided to upgrade my rather old mountain bike.  After shopping around for a few weeks, I landed this great looking 2021 Giant Talon 2 in Red Clay.  Really like the color, and it’s got most all the modern features I was looking for.  ItContinue reading “2021 Giant Talon 2 Mountain Bike Red Clay”
