It's not new. It's, ah, 'vintage'. But it's a racing bike and it's a brand I've actually ever heard of, which are two advantages over my current beast. I was getting a bit sick of checking triathlons to see if they actually allowed mountain-style bikes, and of worrying if Meg was gonna get through the safety check.

Plus it's only £60. Always nice. Reading between the lines, I think I'm gonna have to replace tires and saddle, and I don't trust elderly inner-tubes not to disintegrate on me, but that's not bad going. It's only got 5 gears, but I only use 6 of the 18 on the one I've got, so that's not necessarily much difference.

On the down side, it's pink. Can't win 'em all.
