Roadster in the Rain

My Co-Habitant never tires of tantalising me with photos of his Pashley Roadster, while I suffer here alone and bicycle-less in distant lands. Here are some close-up shots in the rain...

Oh how the raindrops do glisten on that chrome ding-dong bell...

and on the Sturmey Archer 5-speed hub...

and on the Brooks Glenbrook bag...

Brooks saddles come with this convenient rain cover. Don't know whether I think they look cool or perverse! Either way, I am completely envious.

  1. Is is tantalizing or is the cohabitant just taunting you? Ha! Ha! It is a great bike. I love the Brooks bag.

  2. Heh. Both! : ) The Brooks bags are beautiful, and I think the black-on-black is the perfect look for this Black Stallion of a bike.

  6. The saddle cover cracks me up-- very fancy!! I must admit that I use a plastic shipping bag to cover my Brooks seat, but a cute green polka-dotted one from Boden...

  7. I am not sure whether mine will come with the same cover. If not, a polka-dotted bag sounds nice. One could get creative even and hand-make a beautiful custom cover!...
