Soooo… Finally, after holding it semi-secret, in the box, under my bed for what seems like aaaaages – probably close to 2 years – after overcoming some technical difficulties connected to lack of tools and fear of brakes bleeding and in the end curing it by one week in the shed it is ALIVE 😀
Sleek, black, twitchy-nervous and plastic-fantastic Whyte Cornwall in size 57.
Officially the lightest, geared bike I ever had till this very day.
Probably on par with Stratos FG or even lighter.
First ride around local hills and yep, it goes like a stink…
Few PBs without even trying too hard xD
Not all rosy though :p Bars too narrow (Ritchey Venture MAX 460mm), feeling twitchy-nervous and all bumpy despite longer rear end (435mm vs 425mm in Plug).
But it is quick. And light. And apart of weird feeling of new bike feels very, very comfy…
Inevitable happening. Getting old and drifting towards Dark Side. Even started browsing roadie pedals and shoes. <gasp!!!>
Last but not least new-old bike and old-old bike, both resting in the back garden 😀
