We used to ride push bikes a lot when we were teens. All us kids had them and there were about 6 guys in our group that would go on long rides together. You can't do that sort of thing anymore in Sydney because it's too dangerous with all the traffic. Ordinary roads have been converted into super highways which are unsuitable for bikes. This is my bike now which is still quite similar to the bikes we used to ride 48 yeas ago. I only ride around the block these days for a bit of fun and exercise.
My bike is a Mongoose 2010 Kaldi 13. It's awesome. It has drum brakes , aluminium frame, Shimano hub gears, and a special comfort seat. It's super easy to ride and the build quality is extremely excellent. It only cost me $500.
