Well, the trade in value for the mountain bike is 200 pounds, which is slightly lower than I’d have liked, but about what I expected. The problem is that it’s part exchange on a new bike and you know (and if you don’t, I’m about to tell you) that there’s no way I could settle for a two hundred quid bike. After flicking through the bike porn that is the Marin and Trek catalogues I think I’d like one of these, or possibly one of these. I still hanker after my old Bruiser too.
The nice people at Bike Doctor will do a staggered cheque payment scheme. I’d just have to have the faith in my income to use it.
