We're both Dutch so she rides it almost daily. Though a little bit less now with Covid-19. She makes me do all of the groceries.

The only downside is that when you ride it in the rain the whitewalls get dirty quickly and are impossible to clean due to rim wear. I'll figure something out for that some time. It was fun building it in secret as she spent 6 months in the US for her PhD, gave me the time and space to go all out.

Thanks! There are some great examples of lightweight lugged steel bikes from the mid 90's and they are easy to work on.
