Right. So there I am happily riding my bike in the woods now and again. Seemed a less dull way to keep fit than gym or running. I had a really nice bike from Halfords and everything. And then...
I discovered this site. I chuckled at the endless "what tyres" threads, which I took to be a sophisticated form of irony. My wife saw me on the site and bought me a subscription to the mag for Christmas. I started reading about all sorts of funny bike brands I had never heard of and had definitely never seen in my local Halfords. I started to think that maybe I needed a better bike.
This has now reached it's logical conclusion. I saw a Lapierre. I immediately wanted a Lapierre (I suspect they have that effect on a lot of people). And so I have a new bike. Bottom end of their range, but very much top end of mine. Can't believe I have spent that much on a bike, but Lordy it looks good and that just makes me want to ride it. Went out for a first ride last night and it was fab. I'm in love.
Anyway. Back to the post. It's all your fault as I would not have wanted one if I hadn't started hanging around on here. I hope you're all feeling sorry.
Anyone want to buy a Carrera Fury?
