"English Racer" - an older category of bikes usually designed for adults with three internal gears and an upright riding position.

Racers were reasonably efficient, sturdy, utilitarian machines that were heavier than road bikes and were not really "racers." While the English company Raliegh (and related companies) made many of these bikes, not all "English racers" are English.

Eventually, the Stingray evolved into the BMX bike with somewhat shorter handlebars, a single saddle, and beefy rims.

BMX bikes are used for dirt racing, jumps and tricks.

Today, "beach cruisers" are the craze for both adults and kids creating a look and feel of the old balloon tire bikes of the 1930s through 1950s.

Modified cruisers were also used for the first Mountain bikes in the late 1970s.

Bicycles are wonderfully simple, eloquent and efficient machines.

A few of the bikes were purchased by me, or for me, new, including the brown 1971 Schwinn Super Sport, the Trek 750, the Univega 700FS, and the Trek 850 (for one of my sons).

The rest have been acquired used, primarily at garage sales.

Bike technology, of course, changes, but nowhere near as fast as computer technology.

Even more than with adult bikes, sometimes the looks and style of kids bikes take a back seat to functional design.
