No running this week...

...but I've been riding to work every day. On this...



The bike rides really well. It's light, fast but most of all - simple. Almost nothing can go wrong with it. No gears, one brake, no cables, clamps, etc. I really enjoy riding it.

It weighs about 7kg.

That's a really good looking piece you put together!

Maybe one day you can show me the ropes in cycling. Apart from riding to work my Cannodale has never experienced a real treatment.

I'm running 46 x 16. I might even go for 46 x 17 - I prefer spinning.

Ingo, you should be on a German bike - German bikes are the best in the world.

Was running 46x16 myself but found it a bit too much (especially on the knees). Dropped to 46x18 and it's spinny but Tokyo is suddenly a lot more fun to ride fixed.
