Since jumping back on to a bicycle in 2009, I have had three new bikes.
The original Merida flat bar hybrid. Bought on the 23 July 2009, got me back into cycling. Sadly, I found it gave me sore wrists riding it, so I sold it after 5000kms and got this.
Bought on the 6th May 2011, this bike was a fantastic buy. It got me around the bay, from Adelaide to Geelong and many other adventures. I blogged about how much I loved this bike a while back. About a week after that blog post, I found a crack in the frame. Bugger. After some chit chat with Sheppard Cycles, the Avanti distributors in Australia, I ended up with this. A big thank you to Cam and Ainslee for their help in the process.
What a beast. A fair bit more aggressive than the old Avanti, and lighter. With my mass on top of it, it certainly goes down hills fast. Lets hope I can get as much fun out of this one as the last one.
