  1. My dad bought me a BSA bike with Sturmy Archer gears when I passed my 11plus

    I’ve toyed with the idea of a Rohloff but nervous about spares. Also I’ve been brought up by a Yorkshire man. A £1000 for gears? He’d turn in his grave!


  2. Both the gear shift and the handle bar grip,takes me back to my Mums Bike ,which i used to use on my paper round back in the 60,s…..happy days….
