Around October-November is when the new season bikes start to arrive. We’ve now got a good range of new models built up for test ride.
Andy’s been shooting some great photos of some of these new bikes.
Since then, there’s a stack of other new arrivals including the Kona Dr Fine, some Surly models, Gazelle Cabby with a red box, and more Globe models.
Check it out. A stylish hub gear city bike combining practical features like chain guard and kick stand but still agile and fast around the streets.
This is the Onya 8. And this example we’ve decked out with swept back bars for comfortable riding as well as a RackTime rack and bag combination.

So, I spent quite a few months choosing the right parts. Here’s a summary of what’s been done:
