Lets cast a critical eye over some rarely seen bike riders.
Trek (American) brand, check. Flatbar. Triple crankset. Both rim and disk brakes. Huge filth prophylactic (aka fender, mudguard) befitting leader of free world. Back tyre needs some air.
Glebe park chic
Jonathon leans into corner. Offspring enchanted by the blatent salmoning. Bike incorporates PHBCT (padded handle-bar cross-tube). Lime green rims. Front and pedal reflector. Training wheels.
The fab four. Jeans and loafers. Sweptback flatbars, chainguards. Sturmey Archer gears. A different world.
Wait a minute, I think that’s me on the right with Malcolm, Jon & James on the little known ’62 epic.
