Skip tooth looks great on that frame, such a neat juxtaposition with the Nexus. Really nice beach shot. I'm soaking up that sun
Thanks Matti. Keep you warm mate with a few more pics soon. Its been quite toasty and humid over here this week. Have a good weekend.

Is that a "Pixie" chain ring? That's a nice touch. I've been wanting to do that to one of my bikes!
Thanks, it’s a Schwinn Stingray chainring 36t. I’ve found that 36t (with 20 t in back) is as big as this old man’s knees will handle for 20-30 mi on gravel with SS , and I don’t walk up hills.

I think I finally worked out how to gear a 3 speed correctly. I matched the gearing of 2nd gear to that of my favorite single speed bike. I now have 2 very usable gears in 1st and 2nd with 3rd being a long overdrive. The front sprocket I left at 44t but dropped 2 teeth on the rear sprocket to a 17t.
