    Some of my friends got really messed up from those things, they bend out so just keep your eye on them. I know a guy who has some 4130 forks....wink wink.

    I just got my Kona Humuhumu, very nice riding bike. The only problem is, one gear just isn't enough. What would be the best way to add some gears to this bike? Thanks for your help with this, Dave.

    A two speed kick back hub would leave you sans cables, otherwise a 3-8 speed internal geared hub would do the trick.

    A bit of threadjack, but then again, many people reading this thread will have a frame with no fork....

    What readily available fork could you recommend?

    What's your gear combo? What type of terrain would you like to ride? Try SS for awhile. Hang out in the SS forum. Go out and hammer it.

    Probably. Some Shimano Alfine internal geared hubs are disk brake compatible.

    Sturmey archer is worth looking into, not sure if they make a disc brake two speed though.

    Something else..

    Can anyone identify this cruiser frame? It came into our shop (non-profit bike recycler) as a donation. I don't think it's actually a GT, despite the decals. There are no other markings on the frame.

    It had some silly parts, which I replaced with other silly parts. The rear hub is a Spot Brand, and there's a scrap of a Bianchi sticker on the headtube that could just be stuck on for flair.

    Looks like a Bianchi SASS with BMX risers.

    Yep, that's it - thanks! You should have seen the before pics. It had tiny little messenger style risers that would have not been out of place on a toddlers bike. We try to turn bikes around with what's on hand in the parts bins, so the makeover was not quite as in-depth as I'd like.

    Please help with ID

    I went to look at an old Cannondale, which turned out to be garbage, but saw this sitting in a pile of frames, I dig the looks and thought it might be a fun project so I picked it up $60. Maybe it's obvious but I don't know much about these old cruisers so I'm trying to figure out what it is.

    It has a Morrow skip tooth hub that dates to 1939, which may or may not be original. It's stamped E.P.D. on the bottom, but I think that might just be from the local police department.

    The seat binder bolt is stamped "AS" and it has a Mesinger saddle, which again may or may not be original. No other markings as far as I can tell.

    Any info/ideas appreciated. Thanks!

    The AS bolt is Arnold Schwinn. The bike isn't.
    Glad I could help.

    Cool bike! They do share a lot of similarities but the dropouts appear to be slightly different. Your wheel slides directly back while mine goes up then back. Also, there's an arc on the inside corner of my dropout.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    The bike is difinately not a Schwinn, but the AS on the seat binder stands for "Arnold Schwinn"
    I don't know what it is, but it's pretty cool

    Very nice. Here are some pics of a Columbia. It is the 80's repop of the classic five-star. The old Columbia I had had similar features but not the cross mounted kick stand. The seat collar on both sucked and I can see why there's a Schwinn one on there instead. I'll probably keep an eye out for one to replace the original.

    Did you try posting pics on the CABE? That's more likely to yield a result.

    is that a negative rise stem to help negate the headtube angle?

    The bar in the middle of the frame works great as a handle when huffing up steep inclines.
