Ffs. They really are taking the pish when you compare the spec to other bikes in the range.
Bike to work scheme?
It's nice to see the old style but I would not be in the queue to buy one whatever the price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I must be the only one that thinks that it looks Firkin' ugly then!
If I won it in a raffle I'd sell it immediately (anonomously).
Each to their own though, I guess.
If was paid to do so, I would cycle it to the beach, before going into a stripey changing cubicle on wheels, and emerging with brylcreemed hair and curly 'tache in a stripey one piece swimsuit, before patting a maid on the bottom and saying "lawks!". Then I'd dip my foot into the water and pull it out with a crab attached to my big toe, and say "cripes!".
Otherwise, not at all.
Its got something about it but cant help thinking they are trying to cash in on the snobbery of cyclists at that price.
Toffs in Kensington will cycle around on a summer's evening wearing a short-sleeved rugby shirt, stopping off at a bar to quaff Pimms and go "hwa hwa, Jemima". Then they'll leave it in their hallway when they go off to Tanzania to help set up mobile phone masts in the middle of nowhere, and Mummy will give it away to cousin Freddie.
That geometry is so relaxed it looks like it's on triazapan
Makes me think of Eugene 'Cri-Cri' Christophe and his busted fork antics in 1913 and 1919. I have a b&w photo somewhere of him on a bike very like that, looking exhausted near top of the Tourmalet or some vertical goat track.
Fnaar: you're inspired!
Why thang yew! I call it 1% inspiration, 99% work avoidance
Want one!!! Complete with Brylcreemed 'tache and shouts of "Tally Ho!"
I reckon the £££s are for the 531 tubeset. It's special order only these days.
Just saw this.
C'est formidable! Mais quel prix!!
