It finally got sunny and warm enough for me to list this bike on Craigslist and it went fairly quickly.
I did love this bike, I loved the fit and the ride and the quirky Frenchness, and I did do a complete tear down and rebuild in 2018. I only rode it about 2 or 3 times a year on short rides and so I figured I should find it a home where it could get some more love.
With a 5 speed freewheel, friction shifting and center pull brakes this was my most old school vintage ride but when it only gets ridden a few blocks to the French bakery once in a blue moon its tough to justify keeping it.
And then there were two. A few years ago I would have never dreamed the stable would fit on one bike rack lol. I reserve the right for more bikes to filter in but I think I will try to "survive" with just the Handsome devil and the Nishiki. If I do end up moving in 2022 it will be much easier to do with 2 bikes than with 6.
