    The Ride has Arrived - Sensational

    Hi All

    Well have just been in the US of A for work, so prime opportunity to bring The Ride back with me. Been quite the wait really.

    Have to say though, putting this bike together made it worth the wait.

    To purchase this bike was a purchase of total [SIZE="5"]extravagance[/SIZE], there is no way I can say it wasnt. So wanted to get that out of the way. And by no means justifying this purchase.

    So to the bike, this is a piece of art, it is glorious to look at, the lines are stunning. It is something that Alessi in Italy would produce. The carbon fibre forks, bars, front guard, seatpost, cranks & chain guard look rad. The white paint job is stunning. The wheels are amazing, the tires even look the shizzle. The seat is comfy, leather and very cool.

    It is great to ride, very laid back, as it should be.

    What more can I say, this is a purchase for no reason at all, a piece of art for my lounge, as all my friends know I love my bikes, this is the icing on the cake......

    The only thing that sucks about that bike is you better avoid the tendency to want to hop it up on curbs unless you pull the rear up with you... I'd probably scratch the hell out of the chainstays in the first 5 minutes.

    NICE, Whafe! Man, you're starting a high end bike museum. First the exo ML, then the Nicolai, now the Ride. Enjoy the neighborhood cruises. By the way, gorgeous neighborhood that you live in.
    IT'S NOT THE FALL THAT HURTS. IT'S WHEN YOU HIT THE GROUND.

    the guy i called seemed to think so...i did a little research i found one on ebay in worse shape for several hundred dollars, would make a nice project to restore one. i believe they are from the 1930's ??
