    Very nice series! Those look like fun! I just got back into riding a 3-spd. I rebuilt. Now I really want to branch out in 8-spd. IGH bikes.

    Thanks for the pics!

    I like the colour of the Specialized live more than the Trek Belleville I like the price of the Belleville better.

    Nice pictures. Thanks for putting that post together, Norman. The first one really appeals to me. I think belt drive is cool, not sure why. The rubber on the top tube is a great idea for a bike that is frequently locked to street signs, parking meters, bike racks, etc. I guess it comes with the coffee mug, too!

    The Raleigh is a very nice looking bike, too, but I wish they had spec wooden fenders rather than "wood grain finish".

    Bendy top tube on the Raleigh looks horrible.

    Norman, even more interesting will be pictures of those bikes or similar bikes on display in any numbers on LBS' sales floors, illustrating that they are actually being promoted by LBS sales staff and available for immediate purchase.

    The steel fork would be to flexy under load? Alloy is stiffer and weighs less?
