M-mm- nice piece Brett.
Funnily enough, for all the hours I spend in it's saddle, my roadie that carries me so many kilometres a year is just another bike in the end. I'm not that emotionally attached..
On the other hand for the joy of simply being on the pedals I can't go past this rusty piece of junk. Whether because it's a 'cool' fixie? Or because 'steel is real'? Or maybe because I rescued it from the grave with my very own spanners?
At heart it still just a bog standard '70's frame, with a mish-mash of parts, chinese wheels and funny coloured tyres, but jeez it's fun to ride...
Nice. I was thinking about this I scrolled down the thread but you beat me too it. I gather he likes Dad taking photos!
Glad he didn't use the middle finger LOL!
Nice idea. Focus Cayo 1.
This is my Sierra - made in Adelaide in the early 1980s and owned by a well know elder of the cycling community Margaret Day. I love it just as much. Read the story of it here.
