You also get powerful dual-pivot brakes, a chainguard to protect your pants and a double top tube on the frame that can carry a U-lock (sold separately), and opens bottles, too! Other noteworthy details include a supportive Earl seat, comfy grips, platform pedals, and you even get eyelets for adding fenders and a rack for more versatility (accessories sold separately).

Comments:

This is a good steel frame and fork with decent tire/fender clearance for a good price. I have the 61 and it fits like a glove with my 89 PBH (I ride a 60 cm surly LHT for reference). I wanted to get a steel SS frame with room for 32mm tires, fenders, and eyelets for a rear rack. This bike rides quite well and could probably fit my fenders and a 35 mm tire if I wanted to push it. There's not much else to add -- it's pretty basic and not flashy, which is what I was looking for in this bike. The original handlebars and seat post are steel and quite heavy. The saddle clamp is also the old style, but I replaced all of these right from the start. The brakes are also pretty cheap with low-end barrel adjusters and pads with nuts, but no biggie.

    I ride to school each and every day. I've had the Earl for about three weeks now and I am in love. It handles extremely well in foul weather and is a smooth ride. A surprising feature is that it is whisper quiet!
