AVENUE AIRBASE XM CITY FLAT BAR ROAD CRUISER BIKE - STUNNING!

 

This is a large frame (58cm), in pristine condition ridden less than 50kms. It's a stunning looking bike, a real head turner. Rare in Australia and would look good anywhere (I considered simply hanging it on my wall as art). I bought it only a week ago off a bloke who had it from new and never really rode it. It's just not my thing, I'll stick to my fat tyres commuter bike. There's more info at http://avenuebicycles.co.uk/collections/airbase-xm/products/airbase-xm-wizzblue-mens as well as some great reviews of this amazing bike.

Here's the blurb from the bloke I bought it from;

Avenue Bikes are based in Denmark and are/were trying to get into the bike market in Australia. As part of their efforts the Danish Embassy had set up an Avenue Bike stand at an event held in Newcastle about 12 months ago. In walking past the stand I got talking to the Danish lady that was at the stand (as you do) about how cool the bikes looked and she tells me that I can enter a draw to win one of the bikes. So, I think this sounds a great idea and put an entry in the barrel. A few weeks later I get a call from the Danish Embassy congratulating me on winning the bike!!!! I had to go to the Danish embassy to pick up my prize in Circular Quay and had to meet with some of the Embassy punters and have a series of photos taken shaking hands in front of the bike etc. It was quite a funny morning. 

So Avenue Bikes have quite a history. The Christiansen family first began making bicycles in Denmark in 1903 under the name HF Christiansen. They are the oldest family-owned bicycle company in the world. In 1996 they created Avenue bikes. Big in Europe, not so big in Australia and I do not think they have a foot hold yet. I know the Embassy were giving away a green Avenue at the time I picked up mine so I know there are at least 2 in the country. 

The Airbase is a very nice bike. The frame is very solid and very stiff. It is one chain ring on the front and runs 9 speed Tiagra on the back. Brakes are way cool with "drum brakes". The one piece bar and stem is quite unique and the overall colours makes it a very cool and a very different piece. The frame is 58cm and broadly measures 530mm along the seat tube centre of crank to centre of top tube and 560mm along the top tube measured centre of heat set to centre of seat tube. 

The Avenue has sat in my shed for over 12 months and I have seriously put less than 100km on it. Might even be stretching to say I have even put 50km on it. I just have not ridden it as it is a bit big for me (I did not get the chance to choose a size) and I typically am out on something else when I do ride. 

The Avenue Airbase sells for the equivalent of about $1700 to $1800 AUD so grab yourself a bargain. You will certainly not be seeing too many of these about the streets that is for sure!
