… bought 3rd hand and featuring 26″ wheels, drop bars, old skool calliper brakes, Mavic rims front and back (totally bomber front wheel with Son hub built by Rob of Hardy Cycles in Exeter!), Marathon tyres currently in residence over the original, ever puncturing Continental which were on in 2015, Brooks C17 saddle (love it!) and Tubus back rack with nameless front rack.   Basically Tilly is not an expensive top of the (current) range machine but is none the less a totally bombproof piece of kit which has propelled me over 15 000km (so far), traveresed 5000m passes in China, been up and down rocky, dirt tracks to make your eyes water and knees wish for front suss and managed everything in between.
