    The Guv'nor. Saw one of these in the flesh last week - super sweet. I'd just need a flat cap to go with it.

    Reminds me of the one Julian Sands rode in Room with a view.

    Get your flat cap red tom. Put it on backwards, grow a handlebar moustache and you'll look just like Maurice Garin! :blush:

    Personally I love it. If I had unlimited funds I would go and buy one today. As it is I could only ever see it as a luxury item and would probably rarely ride it.

    +1 - it'll definitely be in the stable should I have a large, and unexpected windfall though....

    I have a small yearning for a Cannondale Bad Boy Singlespeed and have been using the no money excuse for not buying one. I've now discovered that a dealer not too far away does interest free credit! The thread title is becoming increasingly apt for me!!

    Just wait until May when we'll be launching our range of retro bikes and re-launching an historic bicycle brand, too.;)

    See it first at Mickle's Get Cycling show in Nottingham (spit,spit,spit (That's for mentioning the N town and not Mickle or the show))

    no, but i find a normal bike less than 23.5 is too small. if they say so, i'm sure it'd extend up and be adequate, but still be not be quite right whilst looking silly, IMO


    if you look at old photos, there's not huge amounts of seatpost exposed

    i know that this sort of set up is fashionable nowadays, but we don't all follow fashion;)
