They don't build them like this any more. My own children had new models of this bike which I bought from Halfords. We gave the bikes away when they grew out of them long, long ago. I came across this one on ebay recently and had to have it for old time's sake as I now have a couple of grand-daughters. It was in a bit of a state. But it only cost ?4.99, so nothing lost there. I stripped it down and serviced the headset, bottom bracket and chain and fitted new 16in. Michelin tyres, rim tapes and tubes. I had the wheels trued as they were really badly buckled. The local bracksmith put a wee spot weld on the carrier where a brazing had come loose. Then all that was required as to put it together again and give it a wee polish. Looks pretty good for a 30-odd-year-old bike. The hubs are Sturmey-Archer, the freewheel, headset and bottom bracket are TDC and the brakes are a rod and cable combination. The rims are stainless steel Westwoods. They used really good components at Halfords then. In an age of throw-away kids' bikes this one is a wee gem and it's great to see it get a new lease of life and give more kids some fun.

Intended to be inexpensive for my beach riding every week with Jonathan. The used RB-2 frame came from a nice guy in Utah who had it since 1988 through a friendly eBay transaction. The rest of the parts were things laying around or stripped from my daughter's bike that just sat unused in the garage. Total cost. $280. YES! Alivio derailleurs and Shimano flat bar 4400 series 9 speed shifters worked better than the 105 derailleurs and 4400 front bottom-swings. Shifts are more positive and lighter at the levers. And it now has capacity to use a larger 12-34 cassette I intend to buy. But note the tight fit of the top swing derailers against the rear tire...and RB2 being a horizontal drop-out, I have to deflate the tires to remove the wheel. I can't win, can I? It weighs 26lbs. Gastly by today's standards for semi-road bikes. But it sure rides like an old steelie. Nice and easy. Anyone have a easy solution to a rear bicycle rack for these thin steel tube, road racer frames?
