Pub/shopping bike

   Having pruned the number of bikes I then realised that popping into town on a £2,000 Ti bike and locking to a drainpipe outside the Post Office was not clever -  I needed a bike that was of little value (and could be kept in the garage at home without locking it up)

A large-framed Raleigh Banana replica ToB frame/forks was acquired from the Cyclists fighting Cancer Charity Bike Shop where I volunteer (all components, wheels, paintwork etc were shot and it was destined for the metal recycler!), given a cheap powder coat and assembled into a single-speed bike from parts I had in the workshop - just had to buy some mudguard stays and an 18T s/s freewheel . . . the chainring is a triple spider with the one ring bolted on the inside to get the chainline correct!
