A vintage bike is a little like George Clooney: as they get older, they get easier to fall for. Others may disapprove of the age gap, but rest assured, the bike shop will make sure your new-to-you vintage model is in a thoroughly modern condition. Vintage bikes are sturdy, dependable, and high quality – it really is true that they don’t make ‘em like they used to! The upright design encourages good posture, so you can ride as elegantly as Audrey Hepburn on a Roman holiday, even if you suffer from back problems. Most models have a low crossbar and a basket, so you can hop on and run errands at the drop of a hat.
