Back Bay Gazelle

July 28th, 2010

Walking recently I was nearly blinded by the chrome on this sturdy vintage Gazelle.

It’s a “touren” model, so I guess it makes sense it’s so far from home.

The saddle was most remarkable, I suppose it must be comfortable with all that suspension, but it looks a bit like a torture device to those of us who haven’t tried it!

All in all I think there may be 8 springs supporting this saddle!
