    Dutch bikes are about as upright and traditional as you can get

    They’re all the right sort of thing, thank you.

    It makes me a bit suspicious that none of them tell you the weight! Get what you pay for I suppose.

    future retro Paper Bike, a bike you don’t have to dress up like a cyclist to ride



    Laid back

    Or for the full retro number you can have the rod-braked step through bike I found in a hedge

    I’ve got the Gentleman’s Globe Daily 1 (yes I know, I know) that CFH has mentioned…

    It’s ace, and you can get a bottle of wine and a takeaway in the basket – which is more than I can say for some of the carbon monstrosities I’ve pottered around on in the past.

    The wife has expressed a preference for a bicycle along these lines from the olden days.

    I fear it may weigh a ton. It wouldn’t see anything more strenuous than a towpath, but can anyone suggest anything else along those lines?

    Requirements are that it isn’t complicated (“I can’t work gears”) and preferably a basket.

    This is not a piss take either.

    Spesh/Globe do a nice one. Daily is the name, I think.

    Daily One is a very nice bike – looked at one for my mum – in the end bought her an Ridgeback Avenida 3 Womens..

    Specialized/Globe is a nicer looking bike but got a better deal on the Ridgeback and the riding position is more upright which my mum liked

    also got her one of these:

    there is also the Charge Hob – single speed last year of 3 speed this year – but a bit over priced and no rack mounts etc

    also options on here:

    Buy an old heavy one. They will be alot cheaper. We found this one on the side of the road with a note saying free to a good home. Couple of new tubes and a service and its good as new:

    Note: Its not mine i was just test riding… my other half let me.

    rootes1: What bars are those? I have a need for some similar 🙂

    This is a little confusing, as the spec regarding gears (or not) doesn’t seem to tally up with the pictures. Or am I being dull?

    it is def a 3 speed Nexus hub gear – when researching for my mum I email big S.. there is also one in the Concept store near me

    you can also flip flop the stem to get a more upright riding position
