145.99 ? pounds? not sure how to calculate that to US $

Why so high? Politics have anything to do with it? Just curious.

That seat looks awesome. Who makes it?
Not quite as bad! Fuel is £1.45 per litre here and rising. That's £6.58 per gallon,or in US dollars,roughly 9 dollars a gallon.

It's a worldwide thing,all energy costs have rocketed in the last few weeks,mostly due to crazy prices for gas. Stocks are depleted after Covid,also Putin is playing a big part in this supply scenario.

The seat is made by a French company Bagster.

Crazy, I know. The cost to fill my commuter has bout doubled since last year.

Thought maybe the pipeline had something to do with it. US Prez is unbelievably against anyone who objects to his madness. Not sure if how this will all play out. I try to stay unplugged from it all and ride as much as I can!

Great pics btw.

I almost bought a cold weather / rain jump suit heated gloves and water proof boots but was asking my self would I even enjoy the ride wearing all the gear? I dunno I may still buy the gear but maybe next year!
I was out early today,temps in single figures,but I had heated grips/gloves and gillet,so snug and warm! I don't ride when the salt goes down for icy roads,but up until then I like to steal the odd couple of hours.

50 degrees F is about 10 degrees C,so we're about the same at the moment. In the next few weeks it'll be well below that at times.
If it was just cold,that's no bother with all the gear,but once the roads turn slimey and icy,then there's no fun in that for me,plus road salt destroys bikes no matter how carefully you clean them.
