Well the venerable ol' Rockadile is retiring from active service after 17 years of reliable service. It is now the tag-a-log puller and caravan park bike. It will still see a fair bit of use as the tag-a-long gets out and about lots.
Off road duties will now be conducted on.....
The guys at Anaconda were very nice about it. Let me test ride it around the car park while they adjusted it bit by bit and swapped the pedals (I have a spare pair of egg beaters) for a computer.
There was only 2 dualies in this price bracket that I liked. The Giant Trance 2 or this one. Since I couldn't find a 20" Trance to try out (will any
Giant dealers let you ride them outside
? Ivanhoe Cycles were the only ones who encouraged me to take a 18" for a ride) it came down to this one. The other problem was finding a bike that didn't scream "middle aged try hard".
They also let me have the 15% off now instead of waiting for the sale tomorrow. That was nice of them.
Loved it when I rode it - very comfortable.
So now it is waiting for me to pick it up for my 40th birthday!
Look out Lysterfield!
