Hyda Bike: Is this the one that started it all?
There is a lot of interest in Raleigh 20s lately. I'm starting to appreciate the lines of them. However, I really like the lines of the Hyda Bike. It looks pretty heavy, but I like the simple curves.
Are they any good? Which came first between the Hyda Bike and the Raleigh 20? What are your experiences with them?
I seem to remember that my grandpa brought one back from Europe in the 1970s, a turquoise three speed. It was well built, but very heavy. He had a cheap knock-off of it, a single speed one with coaster brake, and my brother and I always fought for that one. (9 year old kids can REALLY tell the difference in weight)
I'm going to keep my eye open for one at garage sales and flea markets.
