I had a chance to ride Eliza one last time this morning. It was a short ride as I was nursing a migraine coupled with bouts of vertigo though.
After riding both and then after Deborah rode both (from Loop-Frame Love) I think I get the differences in the ride
- Eliza is more a relaxed seat pushed back kind of ride to me whereas the Sparta is a way more upright ride
- While I hate the modern step through frame because the handlebar to seat post seems too close and the Sparta is also shorter than Eliza its not like the modern bikes. Does that make sense?
Its hard to believe the Sparta is only a few years older than my son and still maintains a vintage feel. Though I have extracted a promise from Deborah that if in the end Eliza doesn't work for her then I get 1st rights to buy her back:)
Deborah looks so cute on her new DL-1. Her adorable son cajoled her into a second test ride:)
Au Revoir Eliza
Much Love & Happy Riding!!!
