up for newbs.
New addition to the herd: Ross Compact camelback circa 1980. Seat tube 17". Tires 26 X 1-3/8. Shimano 3-speed hub. All stock except for adding longer seat post and swapping out drop handlebars for riser MTB bars. Love the red paint. I haven't ridden a 3-speed in a while and have to remember to stop pedaling to shift but all works well for a pleasant ride.

For skinny tires I like these Kendas 26 x 1.50. They come in gumwall and black too but these were all that was available. And I can go back to 2.125 on the same rims.
