The more I look at that the more I like it, bike brake that works in the rain! :) I just love the solid quality of the Euro model "everyman's" bikes, they are serrious means of transportation, meant to be depended on. My Dad has an early '70's Schwinn Suburban 5 speed hanging in his garage, been up there 40 yrs...leather seat with springs, tires are disentigrated and the last time I was up there looking at it the fork was almost bound solid from disuse, but the paint shines as new, it has a scratch on the rear fender and being he is who he is he has a brand new one still in the plastic that he never got around to replacing. He says I can have the bike if I want it, and I will take him up on that, I have to sell a few mopeds first, i have only a small apartment and would need the room. I hope someday to visit your country, looks beautiful from the photo's you have posted. Seems much less stressful than the US, I love it here, my city is pretty mellow, but much of the rest of this country is super fast paced "type A" kind of a thing, I'm more of a laid back B- kind of guy. :) I will get flamed for this but I don't care, I think your mode of government promotes a much better outlook for it's citizens, I don't think it would work here for a number of reasons, mainly the shear size of the country, but for a smaller nation, it seems to do really well. I digress, I need to get back on a bicycle, too much motorized stuff in my life, need to get back to healthier and slower. My best to you, and keep the cool bikes coming!
