New bike at last after 17 years!

  1. Finally traded in my aging 17 year old muddy fox "courier" for a nice new Marin "bear valley alp"
    hybrid, and the difference is amazing to say the least!

    I've never really considered the "hybrid" type of bike before, but as I hardly ever took my
    faithfull muddy fox off road (i'd put slicks on it) I thought that this type of hybrid bike would be
    a lot more comfortable to ride than a traditional "racer" (which I tried briefly about 15 years ago
    but never got on with so sold it on). It certainly has the "feel" of a racer (with the 23c stradius
    pros which I put on instead of the wider tyres that came with the bike), but with a much more
    comfortable riding position.

  2. It is *nice* to get a new bike. I remember when I had the pink peril - a pearly pink paintwork
    jobbie thing from Eastern Europe, made from the stuff of neutron stars it weighed so much. Then I
    got a much lighter hybrid & my mileages doubled overnight :)

    Enjoy the new bike.

    Cheers, helen s
