The bike is fully assembled. The gears and brakes have been tuned and appear to be working fine. I’ve taken the bike out on two 20+ milers and I’m absolutely delighted with how it rides. Extremely light, comfortable and responsive. Joyful.
The bike is also very beautiful. I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out. It’s a classic manufacturer and a classic looking bike. I intend the keep the bike for a very long time and I expect it to date gracefully (hoping the rider does too).
Given that I’ve fully assembled the bike myself I will take great pleasure in keeping it serviced/maintained from home. I’ve already taken to cleaning it after every ride, but that can’t continue… can it?
Thanks for reading.
