Society Of Three Speeds

Well, I didn’t actually spot this beautiful CCM, as it’s in Edmonton, and owned by one of the Society’s members: Tuckamore Dew. Edmonton actually sees actual winter, unlike Portland, which sorta sees winter (like today, for instance.) I know the big trend is to get a “fat” bike for snow riding, but who says you can’t ride a three speed in the snow? No derailleurs to get gunked with snow, for one. Yeah, old three-speed caliper brakes and steel rims aren’t the best in these conditions, but that’s what lowered saddles and sturdy shoes are for! 😉
