Cannondale M1000:

Still love the summer commute on this. The first bicycle I purchased myself, after saving the pennies in my first job. Stood staring at it on my lunch breaks in Harry Halls at the old Corn Exchange, until I’d managed to scrape together the funds to finally buy it.

Full set of bags and a nice rack too.. Good times

Aero commuting down on those bars! Nothing like an old friend day in day out munching the miles whilst everyone else is burning the gas (although my Volvo 2.4 estate gets a run on the weekly shop...)

At a push I could probably get the weekly shop home on the bars with a case of beer on the rack. No impromptu cut price ironing board purchases though:-)
