Hi,

This may be one that doesn't crop up that often:

Model name: Viva Extranvaganza ART (08 model)
(Allegedly hand painted, limited edition?)
Frame/forks: Unidentified Taiwanese, single butted CrMo
Lugs: Surprisingly decorative!
Gear(s): 48 (46) x 18
Rims: Unidentified alloy
Hubs: Novatec
Spokes: Stainless
Brakes: Promax sidepull (levers Promax 2 finger, MTB style)
Saddle: Brooks Team Pro, copper rails
Bar: Flat bar w. Brooks handgrips
Weight: Too much in a headwind

But a nice ride to the baker's to pick up Danish pastries

Hmm :? Have very mixed emotions about that but there certainly is some nice detail unusual too so it gets my vote :)

Thanks, retro riders for the thumbs, mixed emotions and lug info.

I can add that the bike rides well - longish wheelbase, which is not amiss on wet, greasy Danish winter roads and corners - and most important, ensures that the pastries get home from the baker whole as opposed to crumbs :D
