Must say I really like your new wheels. This is precisely the sort of bike I would have liked. Rather than the 48 speed contraptions that litter our stores with a steel fist for a seat and handlebars that put you in a position far too prone. Looks like a beauty for just cruising.
Finally figured out how to reply here - quick reply was giving me access denied errors.
I partly chose this style of bike because it is unfashionable and therefore less a target for thieves! Also I think as you get older you worry less about fashion and are more concerned with function and this bike seems well built and should last a lifetime if I look after it. Got to admit though I take no pleasure in riding up hills. Once I've reached the top and can get my breath back I'm glad I did it, but at the time... I guess my body will thank me for it in the long run.
