The "Classic" that I bought off you is a great little bike. I love the eight speed internal gears, and am looking forward to using it to commute to work and riding it in the occasional Tweed Ride.
Just want to say thank you ... Love the bike, picked it up today from Fremantle. It's fantastic and better than I thought it would look... Just what I have been looking for.
I was impressed with the value of the frame. Crafted from lugged steel, it is built to last.
Perfect for mild to intermediate hills, the 3 Speed Shimano hub is a clean no-fuss gearing system. The gears are spaced well apart to make sure you still get plenty of assistance going up or down hills.
Ideal for more challenging commutes, the 8 Speed Shimano hub offers a wider range of gearing to handle more difficult inclines and for greater power on downhill and flat gradients.
