Introducing Our Old Man Line: Meet Milton


Milton the Raleigh Mixte is a vintage step through lugged steel road bike, fully rebuilt with many new parts. Lightweight and reliable, built for many, many, many rides before needing maintenance. Only test ridden since rebuild, and the ride was wonderful. 

New parts include: rear wheel, tires, brake cables, bar tape (harlequin wrap, cloth bar tape wrapped in two different directions with two colors, and braided, and then shellacked to prevent it from getting dirty), chain, and single speed freewheel.

Vintage parts include: bars, brake levers, crankset, pedals, and a Brooks saddle that has been broken in nicely and has plenty of use left. Bottom bracket rebuilt with fresh grease and bearings, and headset perfectly adjusted.

  1. Sold! Milton is ready to hit the streets with its new owner. :)

  2. It's actually a drop-frame, not a step through. At 79 years old, I really know the difference!

New Year

It's been awhile since I have been able to post anything here. Brian and I are looking forward to the 2019 bike season. This year we hope to find a storefront and once we do, we hope you'll come visit us!

In the meantime, check out some of our past builds:

New Photos of Natalia the Nishiki Century

Yep, Natalia is still here. We recently found a new wall to photograph against and it really brings out the best in Natalia's natural beauty. Hopefully these photos will pique someone's interest to take this lovely bike home. 
Email us at friends@cogcycleschicago.com to come check out this bike. We can always arrange custom builds if this one isn't the right fit.
