On yer bike, son!

Dale’s new bike (a ‘Solo’ by Kiwi brand Avanti) is a retro-style beauty.  I’m no bike expert but I do love the slim frame, the black and white detailing, the straight handlebars, the ‘Solo’ ribbon insignia, the bright white seat (which Dale’s new jeans were staining navy!). I was told that functionally, a large part of the bike’s appeal was the fixed wheel and brake gears options.  But I was too busy cooing over the white detail of the tyres.

If this bike were a shoe, it would be definitely be a 1930’s black and white men’s wingtip shoe. And it would be tapdancing à la Fred Astaire. Or cutting a fine rug through town à la Gene Kelly.
