Thanks for the compliment - and the ideas.
The cages - and pedals - do in fact come off if I take part in a retro ride.
With ref to the tyres, I've not found any amber wall tyres with sufficient puncture protection for Danish roads! Closest I've managed is Continental 4 Seasons GP with amber (brown) sidewall protection but in fact, my experience is that the protectrion (a type of net?) parts company with the sidewall. So practicality currently takes precedence over looks and my preferred tyres currently are the black Schwalbe Ultremo ZX - as good a puncture protection as any but none are perfect.
Lovely bike, have you seen these tyres?
