Rejoice - I have a new bike. Here's the story... I picked up an old Bobbin last summer (see here), and even though it was incredibly handsome and felt very safe, it was also big, heavy and hulking - not an easy ride up and down the hills of north London. So, I traded him (her?) in for a racer. A beautiful, slick racer from Schwinn. It's as light as a feather! Also, I love the slate grey colour and matching brown wheels, handlebars and saddle. It's taking a bit of getting used to (it feels quite strange after years of riding gigantic, clumsy Dutch bikes), but I think it'll be worth it in the long run. Much less work and a lot easier to carry up a flight of steps. Here's to riding off into sunny new horizons...
