Villo, with the winter trade, is coming. In all the recent rain, I have been adding oil to the chain and gears, cleaning the frame and brake surfaces, trying to keep the bike roadworthy as winter comes. And then I think about Villo bikes. Exposed to the elements 24 hours a day – unless some cycling Samaritan actually brings their rented wheels inside on their errands.
