I think the only thing I will change is the tyres for paths and roads use.
I was thinking of putting "Michelin Country Rock" road tyres on as I have seen some good reviews of them.
I start a new job Saturday and wanted a better way to commute than driving as its only couple of miles away by using a road then a nice smooth cycle path.
It will save petrol money and hopefully keep me fit, I have turned into a couch potato since getting a car
Also I did pick up some wind up LED rechargeable bike lights from Tesco and they are great, no batteries to buy they were about £9 on offer at the moment.
And if they do run out of power you just detach the headlight and give it a quick wind up.
I can some pics of the lights if anyone is interested?
Yes I am v happy with the condition I gave £62 for it, a bargain really as its pretty light for an old bike too, much lighter than the last Raleigh MTB I had.
I just thought that an old quality bike may be a better deal than a cheapo brand £99 modern one.
I did a trial run tonight and was knackered and sweating like a pig as I just aint fit, but once I do the run twice a day 5 times a week I should get fitter.
Thanks for the interest I will post some more pics with the new tyres in daylight.
