the eagle has landed




As the UPS guy struggled through the gate with MY NEW BIKE he WAS heard to mutter "I'm guessing this isn't a racing bike" Ziva thinks that stuff from Amsterdam smells pretty good and set about trying to break her way into the box.




And look whats inside! My new Workcycles Secret Service bike. She is a big buxom beauty. I have been riding her all week. In my SKIRT! And cardigans. And nice shoes. No lycra. She is just too much fun. Pa Duck Herder has been in hospital all week, and I have been riding up there twice a day. Parking at the hospital is crazy but I can ride right on up and park just outside the door. I rode her to a business meeting yesterday. She is awesome.

She has a big rack at the front too. More photos to follow. Too much fun.

What a smart Dutch beauty, if the Amsterdamers don't know about bikes no-one does.Looking forward to seeing more of her.So glad you gave up the lycra.

Gawd that is a good looking bike.

I hope you have a proper woven cane basket for it.

I agree with Grand Purl Baa...you need a proper woven can basket. :)

Looks nice Mrs D. You need a pair cloggs now! You'll probably have a craving for some pickled herring next. Do you know how much it weights??

heehee. She is a big heavy hottie!

Am on the lookout for a suitable basket, in the mean time, am using an old upcycled woolies basket (gasp!)

Mr BVVF she weighs a LOT - I am too scared to check.......probably 20kg!

Which means she is great fun on the flats and downhills, but feels like I am carrying a tonne of bricks on the hills.....! I am going to have buns of steel soon!

She is a beauty! I don't think I've seen a swoop frame Secret Service before.
