Bike Review: Lovely Bicycle! I Never Asked for a Honeymoon

December 3, 2012

in Press

Velouria of Lovely Bicycle! wrote an update about her Seven.  She continues to be very positive about the bike.  She’s the greatest.

Velouria’s one of a kind decals

Here are a few of her words:

[…]  it has thrown me for a loop to realise that maybe, just maybe I am in a prolonged honeymoon phase with my Seven roadbike, which I’ve owned since Spring of this year. The symptoms are there: Everything about it feels “perfect.”  […]

The fact that it’s welded and has a carbon fork somehow only accentuates its charm, even as I wax lyrical about lugs. And more disturbingly, I have lost interest in other bikes in its category. This last part is a problem! I would like, in theory to keep trying other roadbikes and comparing them, thereby learning more about the feel of different frame materials and different handling characteristics. But in practice, I don’t really want to ride bikes other than my own just yet.  […]

It’s as if I haven’t had enough of it yet, even after 2,000 miles. […]  I hope to get over this soon. Until then, you are unlikely to see much in the way of roadbike test-rides here.

I hope Velouria doesn’t get over the honeymoon too soon, if ever.  I do fear that soon enough she won’t be riding any bike but her own.  Keep up on all of the great work happening at Lovely Bicycle!
