    I almost like that Elektrokatze, but not with a headtube top way below the top of the seattube.

    The Wren is pretty and understated, a bit plain, but nearly a perfect urban bike for a lot of people. 590.00 is slightly steep for a non-folder, but not compared to a Moulton/Pashley.
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    I love it too... and as much as I'm infatuated with Aerospoke wheels, there's a number of lighter-weight wheel combinations available these days with traditional rims/spokes.

    If I had the spare cash though, I would still probably get a set of Aerospokes, simply because I love the look! (ALSO... consider never having to check spoke tension before and after long rides!)

    Hopefully that will make it easier to purchase one and have it shipped to the US! I'm currently obsessed with the Tyrell FX and FSX models!

    Nice looking bikes! Apparently, the London model is separable too! I wish I could find more details on the full specs of these bikes, like weight and other info. Do you know if these are prototypes, or are they currently available?

    Wow absolute wow. Is that steel? What finish is that, chrome?

    I'll have that above the Swift any day. I am putting enquiries for that out.

    Hot damn! ^^^^ Those frames are really works of art! I love that smoothed brazing.

    Are those 451 or 406 wheels?

    Cannot see any advantage of the kink in the top of that seatpost over a zero setback, straight one ,
    given the way the rail clamp is made so much longer.. and you still have to get to the front Bolt.

    You must be referring to this layback detail on the ControlTech seatpost (pictured below and in my previous post)?

    I do agree, it does seem unnecessary; however, if you imagine the post was completely straight with a 0 offset, you wouldn't be able to slide the seat back as far as you can with this slight setback. It's a minimal difference though, maybe a difference of 10mm? ...15mm?
