A bicycle I like

When I first started this blog my intention was to mostly write about bicycles I like. Just simple bikes that people used and I thought were worth sharing. What has suprised me is how few of these I actually find here in Sweden. Although perhaps there are the same number of 'intersting' bikes, they are so watered down with the sheer number of beaters that maybe they're just harder to spot. I'll write a post about this another time looking at the differences in cycling culture between Britain and Sweden.

For now though here's a bike. I like the colour, the sense of it being looked after and even the dorky flip out reflector on the left.
But the best bit?
Well that's got to be the usual sick vintage Monark graphics! Seriously! Who used to do their design work? For the higher level readers, note also the tasteful pinstriping on the fender. Lovely.
