I have resisted temptation to own more than one bike… Vita (my Pashley SP) serves me down to a tee! But the bike bug I caught pushes me to dreaming of a fast/light bike… a 3 speed or joy oh joy a single speed!
I’d love a single speed, although I have not road tested one yet… so maybe a bit too hasty for me to think it would be a perfect bike to complete Pashley’s sturdy heaviness?
But I cannot not wish right?! I mean… you just need to come across bikes like the ones by Fast Boy Cycles eh?!!! I even got the colour scheme for my custom made sorted out in my head!
Next on the list is a Brompton! I am hoping PB (my other half) will be ever so kind to let me test ride his (properly) for a couple of days, for my commute and perhaps to go to some meetings with the train combo…
First though I need to sell my Vespa… if anyone would like a beautiful Vespa “S” 125 (2008 reg) then let me know!
I still would love a mixte, and I am now not sure if a mixte three speed would be more suitable for me than a single speed… I am going to over to the GBH guys when I have a free Saturday and ask them if I could try some!
Do you remember the Peugeout bikes I was admiring few days ago? The diamond frame is actually owned by one of my friends! He’s turned it into a fixie! How cool uh?! Him and PB are planning to do the Manchester-Blackpool on their fixie next month! 60+ miles : ) I have been invited to take part too with Pashley but I am a little overwhelmed about the 60 miles… although I ride everyday, 20 miles max is what I have covered over one bike ride so far… although they tell me once you get over the first 30 miles then it’s not too bad… has anyone with no great training done it? Any advice/suggestions?
