The best bike is the bike you ride!

My overwhelming philosophy since I started in the retail cycling business is that a bike is only as good as the amount it gets ridden. Whether an issue of fit or practicality, a bike needs to make its owner want to get out and use it.

In the shop now

Veloswap gave me some good opportunites to add to my inventory.  I added a Miyata 210, and a Peugeot, model TBD, but with the carbolite 103 tubing.   A picture is below.  I'm trying to determine the best bet for fixing it up.  My thinking is a nice VO Model 3 saddle, plus some elkhide leather handlebar covers, maybe in brown, maybe in black.    That would set it up as a nice rando bike or classic town bike.  Whatever color the saddle and grips are, I plan to make the toe clip straps matching VO leather.

It's a large, and will be for sale shortly.  Notice the slick internal brake cable routing, too!

Any opinions are welcome!
