Saw a Downtube in Newcastle outside Sainsburys
Saw my first Downtube in the 'flesh' today. I'm not sure how many there are in the UK, but there it was, standing next to my Merc and chained to the bike stand outside Sainsbury's in Newcastle this Sunday morning. It was a nice black cycle with Shimano gears. Looking at the Downtube site now in retrospect, it could have been the 2007 IX with a rack. It looked great. I wonder if the owner reads this forum. He /she probably lives within a mile of me. I wonder if Dr Yan has an importer here now. I'd be quite interested in one, but for the cost of the importing across the ocean.
If the Newcastle upon Tyne owner of a black Downtube that was parked outside Sainsbuy's next to my Merc does read this forum, I'd like to have a chat about how he feels about the bike and how he got it...
