You have done a very nice job with that bike which I understand was built up by you from the frame. All the bits go together so well. If it rides and works as well as it is pretty you really (or your wife, 'cause it is hers, isn't it) have a jewel. Almost a shame to ride it and allow its pulchritudinous to be marred by the inevitable dirts, scrapes and dings all well used bikes seem to inevitably collect.

Thanks. It was actually rebuilt from a complete bike. Intact from the original bike are the seatpost, bottom bracket, pedals, chain, cogset, derailleur, wheels, fork, headset, steerer spacers, cables and of course, the frame. It rides very nice. Smooth and quiet. It only sees the street on dry days.

No Way Abu...

You make them too pretty to ride... Beat that thing up a little so you aren't scared to throw a leg over it...

Grin

Nice looking ride.

Another nice build!

I am more appreciative that you went down from Bali to Singapore to pick this "unknown" brand and built it up so nicely.
There is just a lack of appreciation of bikes beyond the mainstream over here.
As long as its not the 'branded' Bromptons, Dahon, Tern, etc, folks here just seldom see beyond the badge on a bike to just appreciate them for what they are (or can be).

Thumbs up to you.

A little Bannard therapy

...apropos a couple of changes. Replaced the stock tires whose sidewalks were beginning to crack with Duranos (and subsequently to 37-451 Maxxis Torch), and installed a leather-lined Zefal cage.

Shore is pristine. Does it get ridden a lot? If so you are doing a great job keeping it new looking.

Pristine is about right. It doesn't get ridden a lot, no. Just around town on café-touring duty on dry days only. The Dahon Dash is the scarred daily driver. Eventually, as soon as I can locate suitable brackets, the Sunny will get mounted on a living room wall, to be ridden only sporadically.
