Love those handlebars! Is it a new bike? Sure looks clean. The reason i ask is that it looks like it's made the old way and not all fancy tig welding or carbon fibre. Maybe they still make them that way?

I wish the rain would go away so i could get out on my bike......

I got it on an auction for the equivalent of US$90. I've seen new bikes like this, with the "Retro" look, but with new-fangled brakes and gizmos, and for much more. Yes, it's very clean and looks almost new, but I bet it's got quite a few years on it. Probably spent most of its life in someone's garage in Holland or Denmark. The Wife loves it! Says the 22km-oneway commute to work will be easier with the skinny tires, compared to the mountain bike. Plus it's lighter than it looks.

Don't complain, my Wife is counting the days to April, when it'll be warm enough to ditch public transport and bike again. Just like me I hate winter in the city, it's so dirty and ugly. But then, hiking and camping in the montains is sooo much more fun with snow

Aww, she doesn't want us to see her pretty face? I've always loved Pug bikes, but I'm not in position to grab one any time...my wife thinks the three bikes I have now are plenty. :P
