Largest 'Alfie' ever for a local

This townie has the matching special edition Brooks B-17 and grips. The silver Jen Green badge is an extra request from the customer. The Alfine group has the 11 spd. rear hub this time , only the second one I have set up. I think that this parts group represents the best performance value out there.
The 700x35 Michelin tires should be very resistant to punctures. They roll amazingly fast , even though they are wire bead and not particularly lightweight. The pedals were later changed to some MKS flats that really hold onto the shoes well. I put the extra curved tube under the wishbone just to make sure that this bike would last as long as possible.
