Just found out that my employer does that whole Cycle to Work Scheme… so I’m thinking, why ride my pride and joy custom bike to work when I get a new (but classically styled) bike through work, and pay for it at discount over the space of 12 months? Hmm, but what to have?
Giant Via 1 – 3 speed
All a bit of a tricky one. The Schwinn and the Pashley are nice – especially the Pashley – but something about the Giant, despite being the most basic yet most expensive of the three speaks to me most. Maybe it’s because it’s so stripped back to a classic style frame, with the mixte style top tube, I don’t know. Then again, I’ve never liked Aluminium frames. They’re too unforgiving and brittle. I like the flex of a steel frame – the other two have this.
What to do gentle reader? What to do?
