Just bought this on the 'bay for a bit of summer fun and to allow my lady a half chance of keeping up with me on rides :wink:

Having owned various SE Racing bikes and GT's it seemed like the perfect choice. It's a pretty rare bike too by all accounts as far as I know. It's very stiff and quick and seems strangely lighter than my old Floval :)

Nah, this baby is for me! She's got some Schwinn retro thing but the problem is I tend to leave her behind on the geared bikes :lol:

Thanks for the comments btw Bendycat :)

Sorry..just got around to updating this BC :oops:

Rides great, I've been using it a fair bit in the Spring sunshine ...as I said it seems very quick, the lovely stiff box section back end makes it accelerate like crazy! I probably need to add a slightly longer saddle just to stretch out my position a bit and up the gearing a tad, it's currently running 38:17 but I may switch freewheels for better erm..cruising 8)
