When it comes to bargains, she makes me look like a rank amateur, her other bike is a 91 Palisades Trail that she got for £22!

She's only 5' 4" tall, but she rides with a very slow cadence, exactly the reverse of my son and I. She does need the flat bars though, as she prefers a more forward position. I'll take care of that tomorrow and fit some Kore bars I have.... until she gets the originals :wink:

So come on how much was it! Oh and by the way what a great day for a ride today...it was almost bordering on dusty rather than gloopy!!!

(Snagged my Plus 4's on the chainring tho! :lol: )

Bahahahaha! I still can't stop laughing at her in her slippers! I can't wait to try and get her out on a ride! She'll probably rinse me though :(

You'll notice she's riding up our road..... in the big ring!

(Sorry guys, that's a family joke)

Well thats about a third of what I have just spent on my latest Marin Eldridge thats just the one model up! And about a tenth of what my Team cost me after all my fiddling! Go girl! My missus is hankering after a Marin herself after years of riding a tank of a Giant that was all of £150 10 years ago. I will find her something Zolatone and Marin as soon as I stop buying for myself!

She's got too much pride to ride in any other gear.
