Anyone seen any nice listings for a London commuterish bike? My rather non-bike savvy friend was about to drop £700 on a BLB 3sp and i told him I'd find him something much nicer. Everything else is open, single speed or geared, he's pretty stylish (ideally black) and prefers a slightly more relaxed position/geometry.
Any thoughts on this genesis I saw, £300 only downside is it's running an atlus derailleur which seems subpar for the pricetag.
Interested in a nice vintage stuff or must be a modern type?
I've got a 2017 Cube Hyde with 8sp nexus hub, shimano hydraulic disc brakes, 29x2.2 Schwalbe Big Apple tyres, full fenders, think it's a size large but can measure.
Yeah definitely, although anything too fancy might be lost on him
No worries. This is not too fancy, can be build as 5/10 speed or ss, drop bars/flat bars/moustache bars etc etc. Have mudguards to go with. https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/358578/#comment15758905
On another note, if he went for that BLB bike at first, maybe this is not for him 🤔
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
