Here is a picture of my lovely old Raleigh DL roadster vintage bicycle. I picked her up for a steal at a local secondhand store. The bike is in very good condition for its age! It rides like a dream. The gearing is most certainly not suited to the hills and mountains of Somerset West! It is best on a long flat road. Because of the high gearing it takes a little bit of time and energy to get upto speed. But once it is going it just cruises along. I rode it to the skateboard ramp with my kids this weekend. The young 'hipsters' thought my bike was awesome! A real, classic, singlespeed... In South Africa these were (and in some areas still are!) the standard issue bicyles for postal workers. They have very low maintenance and just go, and go, and go!
