Small issue though is that the last bike I owned looked like this:
I am now 34 years old and have been reliably informed (by many friends) that I am a little to old for the new wave punk, skater boy look that I hold dear. Also that the music I think of as new wave; PennyWise, The Offspring, Terrorvision, Blink 182 and early Green Day is decidedly old wave and considered by some to be retro.
This means that I need to move on and buy a new bike and apparently I can't have this one either;
So how much should a grown man of a certain age now spend on a mountain bike? According to my colleagues and friends the answer is up to £2,000!!! I have since done a little independent research and found a few mountian bikes for both gents and ladies that are under £1,000. Some of the best can be found here Best Mountain Bikes under £1000
That only begs the question now of where to buy my shining new steed. I am as yet undecided to I go for price (buy online) or service my local bike dealership. I will be sure to let you know as I continue my apprenticeship in cycling.
"Seriously though who spends £2000 on a push bike?"
