Superb. That will result in one happy lady.

Did you replace any of the componentry with your own choices?

What shifters are those? (They seem rotated forward quite a bit so the indicators are hard to see?)

love the details on this bike. the fork crown lug is so sweet.



when you do finally decide to upgrade parts (i know you will), please consider going with a vintage classic groupset like...



that would look amazing...

Exellent idea SW. My Arabesque is collecting dust becouse i do not use that size chainrings on big wheel bikes. I must look for a minivelo frame for it.

It has classic beauty. The color would look right at home in Miami or the Caribbean.
I like the old-school chrome/polished aluminum look. Nicely done!

ha Jur I was thinking the same...lol But in all reality they should give you some free stuff. This bike is so classic sweetness awesomness whatever u call it. As a manufacturer I would be delighted to see my products on such a nice built. I would even ask to be able to use the pics on my website, catalog etc ...
You are doing a very fine job ABU

Just have to say I LOVE your bike. Most minivelo bikes are diamond frame and I prefer step through at my old age. Plus, I think they look more proportional to the smaller tires. And, I love the color with the brown trim. The whole thing is definitely drool-worthy. If they were easily available in the US, I'd probably break my rule of one bike at a time and get one!!!

Why do you use Brooks? I thought you hated anything elitist from London or thereabouts.

Actually if you read back it is you who is always busy hammering forumers about their enthusiasm for Brompton and BF. You start by questioning their enthusiasm for those bikes and when an explanation is given, you give your ridiculous response.

It matters not that some actually like Bromptons plus the fact that they are built in London. You like other bikes and are enthusiastic that they are built in SEA. Fine. It remains that there is something special about a folder that is NOT mass produced in China. And so it remains also special that one of the best loved non-racing saddles is not made in SEA. So much comes out of SEA that the exceptions are special. And it matters not that some like that. Silly of you to not realise that.
