full cromo frame and fork with sturmey archer 3 speed drum brake hub...
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.
This would be cool with straight or bully bars....

Whoa! Birdy with Sram Red X0 group and a Rotor chainring!
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!)
Wot's that then? For chain tension or handling the chain when folded?

Bruno makes a few steel bikes for touring or just general awesomeness.

Hot damn! ^^^^ Those frames are really works of art! I love that smoothed brazing.
Are those 451 or 406 wheels?
Bike Friday Silk with an Alfine 11 speed hub, Gates Carbon CenterTrack Belt Drive, FSA carbon crank arms, ControlTech Ti bars, stem, seatpost and carbon clamp.
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?
