Yes the virus hit hard. I was assisted by the 1000 allowance on the Cycle to Work Scheme and sold my Cadenza 8

She is a beauty. Stiff frame, lovely riding posture. Certainly not over-specced, everything is well thought out. First impressions are a great ride. I love the look.

Now for this at Christmas lol:

Maybe black less bling?

Ever since I put a Son 20 hub and Bush & Mullers front & rear on my Brommie I'm hooked!

That bike is The Business, the Real Deal. Yes, that's what I'd be riding if, er, I didn't have other financial commitments. i.e. if I wasn't skint.

I figured Mulleady for bling first, function second ... those red rims had to leave a lasting impression on those sleepless nights trying to decide which road to go down...

Nice bike Mulleady!! how about a ride report? also, remember to check the spoke tension early on

Is that a Jetstream? Looks like it's ready to take on anything thrown in it's way! Love the red wheels, and accents.

Enjoy!

I'd be very interested to hear your feelings about this bike relative to your brompton once you've had enough time to become fully acquainted with it.

Well sir you had me fooled. I thought you were interested in the IF Reach. You surprised me.
But very nice bike with the red and all. If the hub and lites match real close in red(not all anodized colors match that well i see) i think it would look super good. But black be less conspicuous for sure. Congrats.

Oh I want the Pacific Reach IF too but don't fancy a crime spree to finance it lol! The virus cravings have been satiated for now but there are so many lovely bikes out there from the Tikit to the IF Reach, The Speedone Taiwan folders...........................#

Did I say satiated lol?

Ah, so that's how the Brits afford their pricey Bromptons! Can we get such a "scheme" in the US too?

Yes, the red rims are striking - well done, Mulleady! I second the call for a ride report.
