AGE / VALUE:   Storage Question posted by: Bryan on 2/21/2006 at 11:09:41 PM
I'm trying to save storage space. Is it safe to hang a bike by the wheels or not? What about hanging it by one wheel near a wall so that the front wheel is engaged by a low ceiling hook while the rear wheel stays on the ground (both wheels against the wall as if it was riding up the wall)?

I've mostly hung them by both wheels.....but as the number of bikes increased - I started hanging many of them by one wheel. I haven't noticed any problems with any of the bikes by hanging them this way. That is, no damage to the wheels, etc.

    Storage Question posted by John E on 2/23/2006 at 3:03:08 PM
Hanging by one or both wheels is my standard method of bicycle storage. Since the spokes operate in tension, I cannot see how supporting the weight of the bicycle on one or both rims could cause any damage. In fact, I would argue that hanging by the rims is better for the tires (and infinitesimally better for the rims) than simply parking a bicycle with its tires on the ground. Hanging also greatly reduces the chances of accidentally damaging your bicycles.

MISC:   Vintage Lightweigt Catalog Scans posted by: Bob Hufford on 2/20/2006 at 10:19:42 PM
I recently finished scanning a 1939 Rudge catalog that came in a pile of "Schwinn manuals and stuff" that a former '70s era Schwinn dealer sent me for my Schwinn Lightweight website. I thought you all might be interested. Feel free to use the images from it if you like, but give me credit for the scans (don't go printing up copies and selling them on eBay or anything). It's hosted on a GeoCities free site, so may have bandwidth issues. Keep trying. (I'll probably be sending the images to www.bulgier.net/pics/bike/catalogs/ soon to remedy the bandwidth problem)

Thanks from me too Bob- the SLDB is as useful a site as there is.
I have something you may be able to help with- (also Morgan G if he's looking in-) Morgan gave me most of a ladies' New World that may be a year or two older than the one in the 39 catalog. His is interesting because it had three-piece cranks (which I think went to Morgan's restored Superior). Do you have any data on when New Worlds went to Ashtabula cranks, or if they were made both ways? It also has a locking front fork. I have some pictures, and would be glad to send them to anyone interested.

Ken,

It seems like the New World name was used on a balloon series of models in the 30s, but I could be remembering wrong. I'm pretty sure the Lightweight models started in 1940 (according to a Pridmore and Hurd book). Send the pics! I'd love to see it.

VINTAGE LIGHTWEIGHTS:   BIANCHI MODELS posted by: George on 2/20/2006 at 5:31:31 PM
Hi all, I am trying to identify an old Bianchi bike that I found. It has a rattlecan paint job and NO decals. Could anyone tell me which (if any) models made between 1962 and 1965 might meet the following criteria:
1) Celeste color (traces found INSIDE the tubing lead me to believe that was the original color)
2)No head badge or holes for one
3) Campy dropouts
4) Bianchi signed bottom bracket and chromed steel cottered crankset with the Bianchi in script and the blue dot "B" on the axle ends. (crankset has triangle and circles as seen on earlier era models, likely Magistroni)
5) Chrome lugs including the integrated headset AND THE SEAT LUG
6) A factory installed "sleeve" inside the seat lug which makes the seat tube diameter 25.0 (actually 24.8 on the chrome steel pin installed)

Thanks

With Campag. dropouts and that much chrome, it sounds as though the frame is the same as that of the top-of-the-line Specialissima, which would have had cottered steel cranks in 1959 or 1960, but 151 BCD Campag. cranks by 1963 or 1964.

Yes, I think much of the Bianchi-labeled hardware is Magistroni / Ofmega.
