Belt driven-lunch interrupting bike beauty
We were passing the deli in Lyall Bay over the weekend and couldn’t help but notice this bike and rider. She had apparently been asked about her bike several times before making it inside the deli and we were the second lot of people to ask her about it on her way out!

I think (hadn’t had a coffee yet so my memory may be wrong) she said a friend owned or worked at the German factory that makes these bikes, and sent one over for her. http://www.schindelhauerbikes.com/
They are very modern looking bikes but with the design aesthetic that I love about older style bikes. Lots of attention to detail, and very elegant. And functional of course!
I wanted to get more photos, but felt bad as her lunch was getting cold. Maybe next time!
