That's a shame about the Carrera. Don't toss it whatever you do, it might not be the ride it once was, but it'll still get a few envious looks if you get it back to looking like its old self.BlackMac wrote:Gave up on the idea of resurrecting the old Carerra, the bike shop reckoned the alloy frame weakens over time and 20 years in the shed might have done for it!!
Anyway just got myself a nice wee cyclocross from the Edinburgh Bicycle Warehouse. Bit embarrassing admitting you are starting again from scratch and also need about 250 quids worth of accessories!!
It's not easy buying a bike, and having to at the same time admit that you also need a helmet, shorts, a pump, a multi-tool, a water bottle... These days with pedals not coming standard with most bikes over a certain price tag too.
