    52 Schwinn Makeover

    Just wanted to start a thread to hopefully offer (and receive), some inspiration on rebuilding my 1952 Schwinn. The first time I rebuilt this bike was back in 2012 and it was completed as it looked here. Since then, life happened and let's say bikes were neglected and most of my other hobbies...

    Tour De Fat '12 / Ft. Collins, CO

    I realize its a ways out still, but I live in Denver and was wondering if any of you out-of-towners (or locals), plan on riding? Even though I grew up here, I've never participated. Should be fun!

    First timer...

    I've never modified much of anything, so this is all new to me...but a lot of fun! You all seem like a good group, and I appreciate the help that's already been tossed my way up to this point. I really liked the way the frame looked on this bike, and want to really make it my "own". I realize...

    Bike carriers (trunk/SUV)...

    Anyone have any recommendation on bike carriers worth checking out? I'm going to be hauling a couple of old bikes back from another state, if that helps. I've been thinking about maybe just getting a hitched installed, but the price difference in trunk vs. hitch carriers is making me nervous...
