I have a Gazelle Fuente touring bike with 'butterfly' handlebars - my son rolls his eyes about this.
Anyhow it was THE bike that fitted all aspects of what I wanted: it is comfortable (can ride with skirts), fast (i like to go fast at times), can handle some weight, eg. shopping, is good for touring (for our weekend trips) - all in one. Love it.
What is the best thing about riding?
The freedom, independence - really experiencing a place when you are touring through.
A few words about yourself. (This bit is entirely optional!)
Adventurous, artistic and entirely out of the box.
