If you ever get a moment to see one of these things, spend a few minutes with it (even the Milwaukee Art Museum have one in their collection!) – this is a gorgeous throwback bike with some really nifty features. I’m talking about the shifter. A physical ratchet shifter in the middle of the frame; it actually switches pretty smoothly, but it’s daunting to reach down (and somewhat forward) to reach it to shift while riding – but man is it rewarding! And yes that’s a ‘parking break’ – because 1970s. The chain guard and Shimano Lack derailleur are pretty neat to look at too, and the upright seat post will fix any posture problems you might have!
