I can't give any good advice on that one...
I purchased a bike last Sept. used it Sept, Oct and
then the pedal fell off
The bolt on the pedal keeps falling off, brand new bike
very frustrating
Arghghhg
The has to be a way to fix it, but not sure how
YOu'g think the new bikes would be better
My bike from Palmyra, N.Y.
A Wester Flyer lasted me 30 years
Wish they'd make em like they use to

Yes, I do remember the Raleigh bikes
I googled Raleigh Shopper
They look really sturdy
Mine looked like a mountain bike
The Raleigh bike is similar to the bike
my mom used in Florida, her's folded up

I think if you've ridden a bike since you're a kid,
it's easy to get it back, only problem as one gets
older the weight distribution is not the same
I feel a difference this year after eating too much
sweets during the winter, I justified that

"I needed the extra insulation for winter, but it is
so much harder as you get older to work
it off."

I don't think a bicycle comes with BOTH UPRIGHTS and DROP. The drop handlebars are what you see on all Road bicycles (very thin tires) and the uprights are the common handlebars that you see on Mountain bikes.

so which one is it?
