This is my wife's bike. She always told me not to buy her a bike. I couldn't help myself when this was offered up for sale on . Low miles, perfect parts build. Amazing paint! So I was able to work out the details and get it shipped in time for Christmas.

Luckily, it has been a hit! My wife has gone through a lot of bikes trying to get one to fit her. She gave up several years ago and was content to ride our tandem with me. With this Glorius, she is finally able to get the bars close enough that her torso isn't stretched out and neck strained by the ride. On previous bikes, she would get a terrible head and shoulder ache almost immediately!

The build is amazing, and the custom paint is fantastic. In the Rivendell hierarchy, the paint job is somewhere between the Toyo painted bikes and a Joe Bell Custom. Simply beautiful.

The kickstand mounting plate is my favorite feature. A very thoughful addition.
