    Very Versatile Bicycle Lights

    Do you think that , with the original strap , it could be tightly mounted on the coaster brake hub ? I like the idea of having a spinning tail light.

    Improving the Aldi bike stand

    I have not had that problem . I am thinking possibility of getting oils from your hands on the structural bar. I would try cleaning the bar and inside of clamp. If that fails, I would lightly sandpaper the inside of the plastic tube.

    Painting Rims?

    Then get plastic soda straws and make a cut on one side, lengthwise . Use them to cover the spokes . Cover the spoke nipple and end of straw with masking tape.

    Faux retro pedals

    Usually the threads on the ends of the bolts are peened after the nuts are installed. Were you able to remove the nuts without ruining the threads ? Then , after reassembly , how did you keep the nuts from coming off?

    Raleigh English Racer

    Cool add to the fleet. Back in the 50s' I rode one too. We called them English Racers. Today would be Distinguished Gentleman's Ride . Doubt that you would find any Tweed Rides in the New Abnormal ! If there is a date stamped on the rear hub shell, it could also date the bike.
