Thank you cotterpin price is secondary to getting what I want I forgot to mention that I want a bike with strait handlebars
not drop.And preferably twist grip gear change.
Last year I bought a Dawes Giro and absolutely hated the gear change which were in with the brakes.And I found that drop
handlebars were not suitable for me (Pity) So I soon got rid of it.
I have seen two bikes that would suit what I am looking for they are.
Viva Bellissimo 8 with Nexus rear hub but the only firm that I can find that had them (Evens Bikes) now states that they are out of stock.
The other bike,a Charge mixer or 8 with Shimano Alfine 8 speed hub again the firm (Winstanly Bikes say they have none in my size).I am 5! 9" tall
with an inside leg of 33". Re derailleur gears, I am ignorant of facts about these gears but what I would like if I cannot get a hub geared bike would be a bike with two chainrings and five or six rear sprockets with a wide range between gears, and twist grip changers,I do not know if this is possible or where to order it from.
As said I want a bike that is lighter than the one I now have which I will keep for mainly winter riding this bike would be without a carrier,mudguards.
and a lightrer frame than the steel one I now have. But I still love steel framed bikes.
Could you advise me as to what sort of weight I could expect to get on the cycle I am aiming for.
Thanks for what you have informed me of so far.
Regards cyclepop
