Gouden Leeuw roadster bicycle (2011, Holland)
Tommy's Dutch bike, uma-style, came with 28" wheels (47-635).
We changed to 700c wheels (32-622) for a better fit,
and mounted Shimano roller brake on front wheel.
Above, original 28" bike. Below, modified 700c solution.
With original front wheel. No brake.
Below, with Shimano roller brake front wheel,
Freedom Ryder rims and Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires.
Above before. Below after with brake lever on left side. Later moved rightside.
Golden Lion bell and seat tube badge.
Enter the temple, inside understanding.
Under a Sella Italia saddle, Abus wheel lock fits both 28" and 700c.
Even with skirt guards!
Old-school Woods-Dunlop one-way two-part valve with alloy presta adaptor.
Now it's presta valves.
