Rumor has it the Raleigh Glorie is actually built in Asia, so I'm reevaluating my bike options. Granted, it's significantly more expensive than the Raleigh, but it's stunning, which is no surprise since it's designed in Denmark and built in Germany. I can't stop looking at it! It's got a Brooks saddle, hand grips, and mudflaps, built in dynamo lights, a lugged steel frame, and drum brakes. Love!!!
I was quite smitten with Velorbis Victoria Classic, but it's the most expensive bike I've considered, so I dismissed it as too boutique for daily riding. However, the Danish website has it for about $700 cheaper than the US. That's after the 25% VAT! So is it really
too boutique for daily riding?
Since I'm leaving both of my cars behind, I could always buy a red Raleigh Glorie or that delicious VIVA juliett, to ride on perfect days. It could be my TT for a new continent...
