|The Terry Burlington - going, going, gone? Unfortunately, I have yet|
to see this model around town.
|The frame's paint job is lovely, including "burlington" written next to the logo.|
How many cities can lay claim to their own bike model?
I like a lot of the Burlington's features: Altus big wheeled derailleur (recently touted as big bang for your buck on Rivendell's blog), step through style, sealed bearings, Terry saddle, dual front fork eyelets, 8 speeds (plenty for Burlington's hills), Kenda Kwest white tires, double chainring guard, fenders, rack, and built using 26" wheels - what I consider the cat's meow size for easy replacement and capable of handling mini off road adventures.
It's beautiful (see close up above), basic, functional and a steal for 450.00, especially since it's shipped free to a local Performance bike store. Also available on BikesDirect.com. And will become a collector's item in, say 20 years. At least in Burlington, Vermont. Maybe.
|And the fact that Terry's Burlington visually resembles my |
Ross, or vice versa, er, has nothing to do with anything.
