My Mesicek. Newish, but very much in a retro style.

I know where there's one of those 'new' Dursley frames for sale.

If anyone's interested I could put you in touch.

Roller brakes and 8 speed hub gears. It's over geared really, but I like the look of the Alfine chainset which has a 45T ring. I put a 23T on the back which is a s big as I can go, but still over geared bearing in mind it settles very nicely at 10-12mph.

Look a bit like a drum but has rollers instead of shoes. One of those things that has to be dismantled to be understood.

They're not particularly powerful, ideal for a town bike. Zero maintenance and they last forever.
