Little Vintage Commuters

My girls love to ride their bikes. They have developed the same love as I posses for vintage bikes.

Alyssa owns an mid 80’s Univega with 700c tires. I installed some planet bike fenders, jelly grips and some Kenda tires. I had to cut down her bars about 3 inches total to make it more comfy for her. Breanna is riding the 30 year old Freespirit Brittany. It’s a sweet bike! Everything is original on this bike. Which means I’ve got my work cut out for me in getting this one fully restored. She’ll need new cables, housing, and brake pads.

Here’s a closer look of the bikes.

    You should convert that Univega into a fixed-gear machine! “Mixte” frames are the hot thing among hipster fixed-gear riders…

    It’s cool that your kids like to ride bikes and appreciate the bikes they have, even if they’re not the newest, flashiest bikes on the block.
