On the Road with a 1958 Raleigh Four Speed Sports

A couple shots from the other night of the Raleigh Sports with the FW four speed hub:

The FW hub is really a lot of fun.  The gear ratio is a bit close, but the additional, bottom gear is really nice to have for uphill riding. The 24 tooth rear cog gives lots of help climbing as well.

I use this bike as my "hill climber" with that gearing. The weather was generally good this past week, but this weekend has been a mess: lots of rain.  I'm more than ready for the rainy weather to end so I can get back to some good, spring weather riding.
