Well I have done it and finally given in to temptation and bought myself a bike.
I a bid to keep fit I decided that it was time to get back in the saddle and after chatting to a friend who is a little more up to date than me I have bought a carrera fury.
Having not had a bike for a little while I have been amazed to find how much has changed with regards to the technology. When I was last into bikes disk brakes were coming in and grip shifters (yuck) were the norm. Hydraulic brakes, rock shocks as standard it is all a little scary.
Buying a bike has also meant that I have had to buy a few things that go with it, namely a helmet. In my experience it was always a choice between the cheaper end of the market that made you look like Toad from Mario or the pro ranges that just didn’t look right unless you were wearing skin tight Lycra (not gonna happen) but this gap seems to have shortened dramatically and the range of helmets is a lot easier to choose from.
All in all I am a little excited about the new bike and cant wait till it arrives.
