Retro bikes for girls
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.Posted 6 years ago
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.Posted 6 years ago
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:
Straw shopping pannier:
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

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 positionPosted 6 years ago
