New bike: Viva Bellissimo

20121211-212516.jpg

Christmas has come early at everyday cyclist towers, with this very red, steel single speed beauty. Full details and reaction to follow but it’s a Viva Bellissimo. Cromo frame and fork, polished alu everything, painted steel ‘guards. Flip flop hub, arc bars. Nothing spare. Rides sweetly. Bought for a silly low price of £259!!! A spiritual replacement for Resurrectio?

      Haha yes. A Union Jack, the RAF ‘target’ or perhaps the Red Baron iron cross? It’s a sensational bike the evokes the simplicity of childhood cycling. I’ve been stopped in the street by non cyclists and cyclists alike. In my workplace (Manchester velodrome) there was a stream of people ogling it in our bike store, which also houses the derny mopeds, with which bellissimo shares some visual similarities! Glad you like it. It will feature heavily in coming weeks.
