Hi folks- here is a recent city bike I've recently finished up, to be delivered tomorrow.

This will be a daily rider in a college town up the way and will see equal parts commuting, errand running and recreational riding. It features an internally geared hub, nice dynamo lighting system and a TA crank for a touch of French flair.

The paint scheme was one I had in my head for a few years, and it found the perfect project. Bright blue with a black head tube accent and gold lettering with a black drop shadow, all set off by the black and chrome components. Simple, but striking.
