    As daft as it sounds that would sell, vintage, ‘sit up and beg’ bars...

    Go on then, what do you ride? No one on here says what bike they ride other than Keith with his blacked out Cannondale with 370 gears.

    Serious question, what bikes do people ride on here?

    I’ve got a good idea anyway but still, it would be interesting to know.

    Very old but well worn Marin for off road and a Giant, can't for the life of me remember what it is for road.

    I'm sure I've mentioned both machines before

    Commuter - Dawes Audax Supreme alloy, 105 group set, Mavic Aksium Endurance wheelset, oem small form touring drops

    Ride - Cannondale CAAD 10 aluminium, Ultegra group set, Mavic Krysium Elite wheelset, Fizik Cyrano R3 drops

    Probably not mentioned and gathering dust-n-rust: Dawes 305 Hybrid, Cube Haartz MTB

    I’ve also listed my fleet before, but here you are:



    Cube Carbon/Ultegra cyclocross monster - this thing is awesome.



    Marin East Peak, 20-years old and a thing of beauty.



    Gary Fisher Supercaliber (when it ran as a single-speed; it currently has an XT groupset on it though).



    Univega Roadie, the old workhorse/commuter.

    How old do you have to be to live in those retirement bungalows? You’re doing well to be riding bicycles at your age.

    And what’s with the barbed wire? Some of the old dears been trying to escape?

    Oh FFS.

    Nice, all terrain covered there!

    I put cyclocross tyres on the Eclipse and use that on light trails. Considering actually buying something new next year and maybe Hybrid.

    Ones with Motors in them

    I had a Carrera from Halfords that I gave away and bought the white thing I posted on here a year or two ago. Only use it now and then on the short trip into work and back.

    Fancy pushbiking a lot more but it never seems to go well, I go to hard to early and end up in pain and not wanting to go out again.

    I'd love a cyclocross, think I'd have a go at riding it the 60 mile to work everyday as well

    You might have enough clearance on your existing bikes fork and frame to fit 30mm Schwalbe CX tyres.
    I know technically speaking there are other differences with a CX bike but it would give you the opportunity to go more off road.

    There ain't the clearance mate I've already checked, plus I'd want to have a bigger cassette on the back and that would involve changing the rear derailler... by time I've fucked about I might as well get a brand new bike.

    I’ve got to be honest, I hardly ever wear Lycra but it does make a difference when you do, especially the padding on the shorts.

    It certainly makes a difference.

    It's based on their 520 road bike, just with gravel related tyres on it and a few tweaks to the finishing kit.

    Thing is though, keeping a car at that price point is never going to be cheap or free, is it?

    Chuck in insurance, road tax, running repairs and fuel and your £850 bargain is actually a big waste of money.
