My SpecialBike

I picked up my custom recycled bike from the guys at Specialbike last night. Unfortunately the gods decided to unleash one of the biggest thunderstorms in the universe immediately after picking it up so we got soaked. But I still love it!

It’s got hub gears, so the chain doesn’t bounce. And you can change gears while your standing still without that horrible crunchy thing you get with other bikes.

And it’s got a twist grip shifter to keep it all nice and neat.

And if you look at the frame you can see it’s history, just a bit. It’s got classic old school lugs and you can see the vintage pump holder along the top tube. Which I like.

Sophie got a very different, but equally awesome bike too…
