1979 was a good year for Detto's, TA, Suntour &...

Pflueger Medalist reels. If Pflueger made a crank set I am pretty sure that I would put one on my tangerine orange 49' Schwinn DX. I have a feeling that Grant Peterson probably pedals around with a couple of Pflueger fly reels in his bags. This 18 dollar baby showed up on the doorstep only needing a little Phil Wood lube and some novice fisherman love. It reminds me of a trusty Suntour bar end shifter - leaves you wondering what roads or rivers it has seen. I have to find a reason to pedal around with this thing in my mussete bag.

For the record: I think Paul Willerton would appreciate this photo
