I've found a well maintained 2010 Tricross advertised locally for £350 in my size with mudguards, rack and panniers. I think I'll give that a go and see how I get on. That'll give me a cheap base to discover what I actually want/need from a bike before spending money on a newer bike.
Do I Need A Road Bike?
Managed to tuck in behind an old burger van with trailer
That made me smile - my dad tells the tale of his apprentice days. Every day he'd commute to work on his bike. He'd slipstream the bus - the old ones, open rear step with conductor in attendance.
One morning, attention diverted, he'd not seen the brake lights go on until a little too late....
Cue dad in a heap, front wheel all over the place and a wry comment form the conductor 'oh dear, son, you'll not do that again in a hurry, will you!'
