Spins beautifully and the upright position is fantastic. Its a nice easy gear for the hills and if i run out of gear, i can just look at the scenery as it really was a bike built to take the slow pace. I'm 6.3 so getting my bars up the same height as my saddle has always been difficult . Yes , it'll be crap in a headwind but I can grab the lower section of bars near the stem.
Very very nice
Really great job! Looks super comfy
fantastic bike. great color choices.
Agree with @MisterMikkel regards the pizza rack, but better to use what you've got already.
This looks rad!
Very good! Creamy colour & zingy stance.
Really really nice !
Drive side photo pls
The romance in me is strong. Either that or I'm just a fool, as a pal of mine kindly pointed out.
Gonna swap out the perfectly fine Vs for Canti brakes - because why not. I used to quite like them years ago but then, I used to like a boiled egg. Cannot stand one now.
Picking up tomorrow
Nice wee spin to the local cider tap.
