I bought a new bike

Posted <2017-01-21 Sat 20:55> by Aaron S. Jackson.

As mentioned in my previous post, I got hit by a car. I ordered a replacement fork and new wheel, but unfortunately I am an idiot and bought 26inch parts instead of 28inch. I returned them for a refund and didn't do anything for a couple of weeks while I was having a busy time in work. Long(ish) story short, the replacement parts were too expensive so I decided to upgrade instead.

I am still getting used to a few things, such as the lower handle bars and the peddle clips, but it should only take a short amount of time to get used to. One of the main advantages is that it is 10kg instead of 16kg. Quite a bit lighter but not as light as those fancy bikes.

Here's a pic of my new bike!
