New bike to commute

Postby uksoundz » Sat Mar 24, 2012 9:01 pm

Just thought I'd post a pic of my new commute.
This should save some money, 22 mile each way, once a week is the plan.

Lovely looking ride. Love the black white. How much if you don't mind me asking?

£375, absolute bargain, took it to bits today to make sure everything is working ok, and it is!
It was second hand but hardly used.

You jammy bugger!

My Merlin is getting in for 10 years old so I'm tempted with a proper road bike. It an eBay purchase?

I wish I had one Ian.

My malt has got the worlds longest stem and it means I'll reaching right over.

I'll be on my bike weds if the weather turns out as promised. Maybe even tomorrow if I manage to get up in time.
