I've done it on 39 x 25, but I did need the odd break!
It would depend on how fit you are, but I think 30 x 26 would be fine, but once you're riding it you'll wish you had a lower gear.  If I was you I would get an 11 x 28 casette.

It's one of grfs bikes..


Elle Macpherson was in the paper today on one, tres chic, Electra cycles..



Image?

Is there some other reason one should buy anything?

No, don't tell me, because it's old and made of seasoned wood.

That's just disgusting, why build nice flared sides to sit on if 'they' then go all toilet postion, it just looks so wrong. I shall not do it, rather toodle along at the back than demean myself in the name of glory..

Ahh but I know you do.. what you really don't care about is being 'found out' in a world where folk still think it's perfectly O.K. to squat their backside in an 'over the toilet like manner' in order to make their favorite pursuit somehow more painful. So it doesn't matter.

Well it used to not matter, but now I'm here, and calling you on it and deep down the guilt is nagging at you, I know this and find it strangely comforting, which worries me.

Oh and that bike? If it were an illness it would be Aids.
