  1. Love those old Raleighs. But you have to love any bicycle with brakes designed like something you’d normally find in an orchestra pit.

    • They’re not as efficient as modern brakes but they do look cool.

  2. I was looking at another rod-brake-equipped machine last year: a two-speed Italian military folding bike from 1914. The front brake caliper looks surprisingly modern.
