Ready for Shopping – Åsa, Sweden


All these bikes… I hardly know how many bikes I have but still I have no bike for a regular trip to the shop for some groceries. So I start looking for a bike with fenders and some kind of rack to carry stuff and come across this beauty second hand:

It’s a Crescent in replica style. Crescent is the old Swedish brand originating just 30 minutes south of where I live and has a long history (1894). The model is called August but it’s not printed on the frame. It retails at around 600 € but I found it in mint condition second hand and paid 150 €. For another 20 € I get a San Marco copy saddle from Biltema and a wooden box from IKEA and it makes me even more happy:

So happy with this ride 🙂
