This is my new bike, complete with Brookes saddle, disc brakes, 21 gears, fenders and rear pannier rack, only one problem, had her for a few weeks now, but haven’t managed a meaningful ride on her.
Up and down the street doesn’t count. Didn’t want to ride her on my commute, partly that, ” oh I can’t get it dirty”, because it’s new and shiny, but mostly because I need to get used to the new set up, i.e., the new Brookes saddle, and the 7 extra gears compared to my trusty Subway 1. Sice then it began snowing, and we’ve ended up with 4 inches of the stuff, that’s been hanging around ever since in the form of ice, which after last year’s fall I’ve got a very natural aversion to. So the poor girl’s been locked up in the shed, all this time.
