This week, I became , No longer a roadie.
WHY you all ask ?
MTB’ing has boosted my weight loss numbers and I feel SOOOO Much fitter than I have for a while too, that and cycling home , with my Magicshine , on the PITCH Black Canal, was the most fun I have EVER had on a Commute.
I disposed of my Cube this week, The Insurance Company of the van driver that hit me, have now settled (On the cost of the bike)
So, Where does that leave me ?
Well….Im not clear in my head where it leaves me yet TBH LOL
First off I am “On-One” now 😀
What a bike it proved to be on Friday too, I took the road route to work, with 70Mph gusting winds I wasn’t gonna risk going for a swim !!!
Its a SERIOUS Down Hiller/Off Road bike, Its a little on the smaller side for me, due to the Geometric set up , Actually, its not small, its just different to the normal XC MTB’s I ride, but when off road, it performs like nothing else I have EVER rode, the flip side is, when on road, it was at times, not suited, that said, I got home just 3 mins more than I would on my roadie…. (Im sure Clive and Red, will appreciate just how much of a monster this bike is)
Question now is….Do I buy another Cube…….. I don’t want to step foot in Halfords but have always wanted a Boardman (Maybe second hand is the way to go ?) for the days when I am forced to go On road over winter ?
PS…C2W will bring me a roadie next Summer, so fear not 🙂
