- I am a very, very lucky man (new bike)
Short story is I had a firesale to fund deposit for my first house, which all being well completes this Thursday.
This involved selling all my bikes, including my immaculate RC200 which I swore I would never sell….and then sold. I was so, so annoyed at myself for that, like really annoyed, but I convinced myself I had to get some perspective.
However, today I picked up my ‘new’ bike from a very nice young chap, who works at a big chain bike shop and has clearly maintained this thing to a stupidly high standard. Somehow, I always seem to land on my feet when buying bikes.
I don’t know what planet he lives on to sell me it for the price he did, but thank you Martin for going to a 29er and giving me my own wheels again.
I think it’s bloody lovely.

Tell me about it. Perfect bike, truly immaculate and kitted out in top stuff too. However, it went to a guy that had been searching for an immaculate RC200 for some years, so I’m slightly appeased by the fact it has gone to a good home…..but only slightly!
I’m not an overly emotional guy, but I was genuinely upset at selling that bike.
However, this new one has dragged me out of my retro-issues, with its tapered head-tube, poplock forks and frankly, I do think it is quite a looker!Posted 4 years agosmcicrMember
Not read the latest STW bike picture review technique memo but am surprised nobody has pulled the OP up for what appears to be a yellow rubber ducky on the floor yet. Equally, it may look fast but it’s going nowhere without pedals.
Congrats BTW – on the bike and the house 😉Posted 4 years ago
