Bike of the Month – July 2022
This month’s ‘Bike of the Month’ is from the collection of Jaime Castellanos, who is originally from Spain but now is living in Dublin. Jaime spent some time getting this bike right and we think you will agree he has really ‘nailed it’!
We are hoping to see this bike at the ‘OldVelos Festival of Cycling’ at Curraghmore House in September. Maybe this is the bike to bring the ‘Longford Tractor Spares Trophy’ back to Dublin after spending two years in the hands of Fintan Foley in Kerry.
