    King Iris cage (want to swap for a one that will take a bigger bottle)

    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.

  • Excellent!
    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.
