Classic Look ?

Hi All,

For the french guys. I know, it is only 10 years old, but i was happy to find it for my dad - he is 71 in a week or so - he took it for his first ride today. He likes it.



Will it become a classic ? Time will tell i guess. All I can say is its not a compact frame

I have been a little embarassed by him - the last bike I found him, his first ever road bike - was compact framed and a triple. I'll be happy to be seen with him now I think.

He started with a flat bar "hybrid" at 65-66. Late to the sport but better late than never. It really has been booming in Melbourne, Australia in the past decade. Not so sure about the other large cities.
