    A Dutch Urban bicycle, 6 gear, exported to the SE Asian tropics (Penang). My bike never fails to attract positive attention!

    When cycling, one needs to sit upright, face forward and enjoy the view.

    And cycle for practical purpose - such as bringing back home veggies from the market. Hence the leek in the saddlebag! ;-)

    @mph323 yes the top tube is shorter than standard, the head tube is taller than on the photo (just got this image from their website) it is actually a bit odd looking but it works. It puts me on a more upright position. I don’t race so I don’t care. I should post a real photo of it.I tried other bikes that were close to my fit, but they were not all that much cheaper so I went for the custom frame. The only downside was the long wait, over 8 weeks... the bike rides smoothly with the steel frame and fork. I’d recommend it for anyone that has problem with fit. You want to go get fitted by a pro who knows these bikes. They also make Gunnar in the same factory. Just a bit different bikes.

    @suzjmac I can only post photos using a desktop, and I don't have the the icons everybody else has. However, I do have hollow squares on top of the text box I type my post in. If I hover my mouse over the squares, I eventually find one that shows a little popup message that says "attach file" and I can attach a file that way. Maybe yours is like mine?

    The bike fit and size does make a huge impact. I had a bike a size too big, and I could not handle it properly. Was all over the road. Now with my smaller size one, i do not have that problem anymore.

    Here's my baby, my first ever "real" bike (not from a department store.) It's a Liv Rove 3 Disc and my daily commuter to/from work. I didn't realize having a bike that was actually the right size for me would make such a huge difference, it is unbelievable. I'm still riding it in the snow right now but need to get set up with studded tires since I wiped out twice on slippery unplowed path today...

    That sound awesome. Enjoy!.
    This is my brand new baby, a Carrerra Vengeance mountain bike. It is my first bike in almost 10 years :open_mouth: There are miles of bike trails literally behind my house and I was getting envious of seeing all the cyclists from my back bedroom window. I used to cycle 20+ miles on saturdays and sundays and would love to reach that level of fitness again! Today I went for 4.8 miles and I plan to gradually build on that :smile:

    Nice climb. A slightly sketchy descent dodging sheep sh1t & cattle in the first 5-10km!

    I have one aluminum. I used it for racing, and it was all right. I tried to use it for long distance cycling and didn't like it ... too rough. So it's my trainer bicycle ... on my indoor trainer.

    The bicycle in the photo I posted a page or two back is titanium.
