I just bought this gal from a nice Israeli man in a parking lot, for giant bike day ride from downtown to beach Sunday. She’s a beautiful vintage Schwinn. But! I was dumb and didn’t test her on hills. She’s good on flat road but on any incline or decrease, which I guess is to say, hill, she’s creaky and stiff. Now I have to get her fixed. I officially need to stop doing things in parking lots that are not parking.
