I've just trawled all through this thread and not seen one picture of an Odyssey even though they've been talked about a lot.
Here's a shot of mine in the guise of Mrs Ned's cruising machine but it was transformed last year into a more conventional bike and can be seen in action during last years Peaks ride complete with matching period jersey.
I can take a better shot of it in its conventional format if anyone's interested!
Hang you head in shame Ned.. That is a dredful thing to do to an Odssey..what were ya smoking when you put those bars on? and the mud guard?
Yeh, I know, but that was before I'd joined this lot and realised what a classic I'd got. And Mrs Ned needs comfort not speed - and I'd bought it for her (allegedly) in the first place. I'd have hoped that it's a lot more acceptable in its current incarnation.
The mudguards date back to when it was my 'winter MTB'. I got fed up with a wet muddy streak up my back and a wet *rs*. The front one only came off to make it easier to fit into the back of the car.
I now need to build another bike for Mrs Ned still using the (very comfortable) bars and saddle. They are an integral part of any bike I build for her.
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
