My New Bike…

Recommended Posts

Collected the new winter/commuting/training bike yesterday and just come back from its first Sunday morning ride. I’m well impressed with it, just need to get a few miles in the legs now….:blushing:

Nice bike John . Liking the saddle . How many miles you gonna plan on doing ?

 

Are you into cycling as much as Mick S was ?

 

Mick is a legend mate! I used to be well into it but had a winter lay-off because my knees are giving up the ghost. I’ll be cycling into work, which is a round trip of about 30 miles. On a Sunday I’ll go out and knock-up about 40 or so.

 

I’ve been a roadie, done all the ball-breaking training in the past – now I just enjoy it. :001_smile:

cool. did you have to pay extra to have your favourite pop group printed on the handlebars?

 

I had to Google that to get the joke mate! Must be my age, or is it your rather un-healthy interest in teen music…?

Tidy. Im riding a fixed wheel bike at the moment but not getting out on it enough. I wish I could cycle to work but I think it would kill me cycling home after climbing all day.

 

Nice Chris king headset. I always wanted a Chris king rear hub.

as a kid i lived on my bike, like most of us i guess, i used to have a cracking mountain bike but sold it to pay a bill when i was younger, i do have another mountain bike but i never liked it, its got the suspension and stuff and its a small frame. Its a muddy fox, was £400 8 years ago, but i just dot like it. i was in a bike shop yesterday and soooo wanted to buy a new bike, it was made by the gods i reckon, it was £2500 down to £1500. It looked amazing, i could actually just sit it in my living room and look at it all day, so my rambling point is, does a really good bike make much diference in the enjoyment of riding it?? i know i THINK it looks great, but would it be a pleasure to ride?:001_smile:
