Around the block
With its wheels coming in at an estimated 24 or 26 inches this little bike either just squeezes into the (rather elastic) LBB criteria, or just misses out. But hey, it’s not all about the wheels, check out the frame…
Snugged up to this (also rather attractive) full size Raleigh it’s clear that this little Hallmark had a past life as a kid’s bike (which has been around the block quite a few times according to its beautifully worn paint work – love that patina).
Any anyway, what little bike blogger could resist it? The mudguards, the new tyres and the funky lock are telling me that there is some big love going on for this charmingly customised bike, and in the end that’s the point of the whole exercise.
