BCU's Globe column #3 out today, topic: 3-speeds and tweed
Well, one dark horse candidate is gaining a small, growing and intensely loyal constituency. Some owners call it a “tank,” but for the more refined it’s commonly referred to as a 3-speed. The bike itself has been a common enough sight for over a century—big burly fenders with built-in reflectors and lights, chain guards, and internally-geared hubs, all on a super solid and heavy steel frame. All in all they generally weigh 10 to 25 pounds more than a common road bike.
