Um. I might have accidentally bought something
Sunday, May 12, 2019
I might have got accessories for it too.
This is a Genesis Croix de Fer gravel bike. It’s made of steel and goes like a train.
The photo was taken on the 25km test ride that I took it on.
I covered roads, concrete, grass banks - up and down them at a bit of a lick - mus, Sandy tracks, more mud, gravel track and more roads. I took it up hills and hooned down the other side and generally rode it like I stole it. My word, what a piece of engineering that is.
It was a lot of money and I could have got it on ‘Cycle to work’ but chose not to.
I raided my piggy bank and used my British Cycling 10% discount..
He now has road tyres and they are slimed, just in case. 2 bottle cages, proper SPD pedals. I have rolled th3 bars a little and put my favourite old saddle on him.
Here is my pal Rachel and I at just gone 7 this morning, off for a sponsored ride to raise funds for Lakenheath and Mildenhall food banks.
Here we are, just under 7 hours later.
GOS picture. Sorry about the mark over the figure 1. The dog got it.
That bike rocks.
