Not so Specialized...

I was really looking forward to swanning around on my Pashley bike - I had visions of drifting along with French bread in my front basket and generally looking very sophisticated. These hopes were dashed when I returned to Evans Cycles. Apparently, the 'helpful' assistant on the phone was not so helpful - in fact, he was misinformed. No child seat can be fitted to a Pashley bike (something to do with the position of the frame. I stopped paying attention at that point).

So, no Princess Sovereign bike for me. Instead, it looks like I'm going for a Specialized:

I'll have to lower the saddle so I'm reaching up for the handle bars and sitting upright, rather than leaning forward. Also, I'm going to put a wicker basket on the front (I will have that French bread) and add some mudguards to customise it up a bit. I am gutted - but naturally, H comes before the bike - just :o)

  1. Oh, that's a shame, but I'm sure you'll still enjoy your new bike. Children can be a bit of a hindrance when it comes to style can't they?
