Riding home up Oxford Street last night when a driver decided my lane was better than the other three that he could be driving in. I know I'm nice, but I'd prefer a little more personal space,…Continue

Just got told to get off the road by a man in a sporty black car driving up Bathurst Street. He had two lanes in which he could have overtaken me. TWO FREAKING SPARE LANES!!! But no, it's much better…Continue

"Nice one. Nothing quite like a custom bike for pride of ownership. When I climb out of Bondi these days, I need 25 GI to be comfortable. And when I venture to Bondi on the scooter, I am reminded of your unfortunate experience. Enjoy"

"As MarkySharky says, the 5-speed is the problem, 3 is good. Alas Cooper bikes installed a 5-speed on this bike. Wooleys were able to keep the down tube shifter and the drop bars."

What to do with this lovely 10-speed?

Posted on October 8, 2011 at 4:00pm 4 Comments

Would love some advice on what to do with this old thing that I've inherited from my mother.

 

I'm not entirely sure what the frame is, maybe a Fuji? Stem and handlebars are Sakae.
