After a minor seat adjustment, the seas parted, the fog lifted and the ride was like a dream! She simply wasn't mean to be an upright bike I guess.
Perhaps I'll add a rack and move the basket to the back? We'll see. While this look is odd I kind of like it....definitely unique! I'm still contemplating those fenders.
Out on a test ride to pick up a few essentials - beer, hard cider and, umm, eggs.
