    Excellent choice of brand, though not sure its my CoT! Luckily I can park my bike inside at work so security is more by dint of invisibility than security add ones (best way!).

    Is that an innovate new bike airbag on the front? :lol:

    God, how low is that saddle and how high are those bars! She must be sat bolt upright!

    Have you tried getting the pet to ride the bike and placing your wife in the basket?

    I'm guessing the saddles not been adjusted as its right down on the top of the tube

    no she likes them low.... bare in mind no SCR for her, purely transport and very low distance, and flat, the steepest grade is kingston bridge...

    though it looks more from the ange + closeness i took the photo.

    I am a big fan of the low ride look on girls bikes.
