She couldn't find anything wrong with it, but she wasn't enthusiastic either. "It feels heavy", she said.

When we got home and I wheeled the bike inside, I noticed that the front brake was rubbing. And not just a little bit. I remembered it being a little loose and tightening it, but apparently I forgot to properly check the result.

That scrubbed up well .
That is quite a different frame from the earlier ( I think? ) Roadwinner I am faffing about with at the moment
Seems a better quality of lugs etc to mine .
All good fun !
Thank you for sharing.
Lucky you having a better half who rides also !
