2010 Old CCM "Breaking Away" Bike

A old beater single speed bike to be used as a winter bike.

CCM womens frame, red in colour.

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
One piece forged crank set.

Newer plastic pedals replacing the original bikes pedals.


Original handlebars turned forward to get the same fit as my road and mountain bike.

Coaster Brake

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
26 by 1 3/8th tire/ steel rim

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
28 by 1.5" tire/ steel rim

Lights for making the bike a night cruiser.

More Info:
I got this bike for free from an older gentleman that is repairing old bikes and selling them. I traded some stuff for it. It is a work in progress as the front tire needs replacing or a 27" road bike rim/ tire needs to replace the current part. I call it the "Breaking Away" bike since it is a simple basic bike something like the one used at the end of the movie of the same name. It makes for a very simple communter machine. I changed over the front wheel, tire to a far better tire for riding on. The seat has been changed over to a far better one as well.

Current Stage Info:

The donor bike that supplied the nut for the found road bike also gave up it's handle bar on this bike. I am just experimenting to see how it feels. So far it is working OK.
