"cool! Interesting that Schwinn put the word "Automatic" on the coaster brake arm marketing text. The kickback 2 speeds are not actually automatic, as the name implies and Robot Gabe tells us, the rider has to pedal backward a bit to get it…"

"Kickback 2-Speed Hubs rule! If your even remotely interested in that, this is perfect. You could port the whee alone to another 26" compatible ride. Make sure you get the classic S-6 Tires, these are your not your typical 26" rims."

"Its all in the rear hub. You kick the pedals back and it shift to the other gear...hence the name kick back 2 speed. Its awesome. It has a coaster brake so you don't need any cables to brake or shift gears."

"It might also help if someone with a video camera could tape them doing these things. The purpose is two-fold: 1. - You could use it to show the "bosses" what their employees are doing. 2. - You could give it to a news outlet (Channel 2 or…"

Our friend Bryan Rautenberg passed away in his sleep Tuesday morning. Some of us will be meeting tonight, Wednesday 5/12, around 9pm at Bernice's Tavern, 3238 S. Halsted. Wednesday is Bingo night at Bernice's, and the games tonight will be in Bryan's honor. Please join us if you'd like; there will be hugs and Malort shots for all.
