Vivienne's Requirements

I wanted a bike for commuting, coffee rides, keeping fit and for exploring when away for weekends in the countryside. I'm not into mountain biking,  road racing or any form of competitive cycling but still wanted a quick and nimble bike. This Double Cross is a perfect multipurpose bike, I love it!
