Let's bring it down to earth with a comfortable town bike.

1986 Fuji: roller cams, Sugino AT, Suntour, Brooks.

Yep, spring has arrived here too.

And if I'm not completely mistaken this is a certain new yorker clearing a nice path for riding his FC, perhaps just a couple of days ago...?

I like it as well, but those leather grips bring a grimace to my face. Do they feel any better than they look? Black rubber/foam grips and it's an great townie :D

I admit that the leather overload is, how should I put it -- wide -- like a camel coat or brown suede shoes. But that's the point.

And if I went for black grips, I'd need a black seat post, and stem and saddle and brakes and headset and hubs and shifters and QRs. And then people would think my bike was anonymous and not vote for it.
