… The scheme that is.
My plan is up soon and the Bianchi road bike I got off the scheme last year is almost paid off so it is time to look for something else to spend ( save ) money on in 2010 and not because I have to but because I end up paying so little for a great bicycle and while I can I may as well take advantage.
I thought “another road bike” but no because spending up to a grand on another road bike will only get me the same one again with 010 hardware and what would be the point in that?
“How about another track bike?” I say to myself. Answer – No. I already have two and three would be just greedy!
Perfect for cycling to work on a day like today when it is minus 2 degrees and all I want to do is coast and then slow down using a mechanically operated braking system. Comes complete with guards and a rack too which has bonus points on so many levels I can’t even explain!
This is also great for the lady in my life because with the saddle down she too could use this. During the summer her trips to and from the market / park and other things that girls like to do like collect flowers for flower arranging would be just that little bit more… well, more lovely.
So having an option for Amy to use this ‘cycle to work bike’ also means we can do away with her Colnago ( Fauxnago ) thus not adding to the pile of bikes that litter our dining room. This will keep ‘her indoors’ happy no end as it means the bike stash won’t get bigger thus enabling her new sewing machine to remain out and ready to utilise at any given moment.
So there it is. My cycle to work choice for 2010 is the great Specialized Globe Live, because it’s a do everything, for everyone kind of bike and right now that is what I need ( want ).
