Sparta Pallas - a decent city bike
Here is the Sparta bike that I will be riding (to raise funds/awareness for Cystic Fibrosis) from Sydney to Melbourne. It is a trendy and comfortable aluminium Dutch city-bike, complete with Shimano's NEXUS 7-Speed Internal Hub gears (designed for the the ideal coffee shop bike Shimano says!), front suspension, rollerbrakes,... In other words I will be pushing it to the limit riding it on forest roads and highways, through creeks and up and down the foothills of the Great Dividing range along the NSW and Vitorian Gippsland Coast. This Sparta bicycle will most likely be the first ever bike to see a Koala Bear in the wild.
If you havent already made a donation to CF Tasmania through the Everyday Hero website I urge you to do it now, I really want to reach the $4095 goal I set!
