Before and after my bike got fixed!

So glad, my bike has been fixed now and had a full service!

Here is what he looked like, before it got fixed! Sorry my bike is male, why would I want to ride a female! LOL!

Here is what, he looks like now! Just like having a new bike again! 🙂

Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 bike is back on the road!

Happy days! At long, long last, I’ve got my Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 bike fixed and fully serviced! I broke one of the cranks, way back in July of last year! So just need to put a new pedal on him and he’s good to go!!

It also needed, two new break pads, bottom bracket and a very good wash!

My 17 year bike, just had only it’s second full service

Believe it or not. The bike that I have had for 17 years has just had, what I believe is only it’s second ever full service. It only cost £92.99, which I am very happy with indeed. Feels so nice having a fully working bike again. It’s even got fully working back and back breaks for the first time in god knows how long! Big thanks to Terry Wright Cycles for keeping it on the road. So who knows, maybe for another 17 years :).

I give it a quick test cycle tonight. I did a whole 12.1 miles on it. Which is also the first cycle, I have done since Wednesday 23rd October, which is a long time ago for me.

First cycle after getting bike serviced

Happy days, that’s me got my bike after it went to Terry Wright Cycles last Thursday (8th March 2012) for a much needed service. It’s so nice having fully working front and back breaks again. I just need to watch, since for the last 3 months or so, only the front one was doing anything at all. If I used them now, I would be straight over the handlebars which would not be a good thing. They also renewed the gears, which had been jumping like mad. The service came to total of £111.98.

I will now leave you with statistics from today’s short bike ride.

Route statistics:-

  • Distance: 20.71 miles.
  • Time: 1:36:13 (h:m:s).
  • Avg Speed: 12.9 mph.
  • Max Speed: 30.6 mph.
  • Elevation Gain: 245 meters.

Bike gone in for a service

At long last my bike has gone to Terry Wright Cycles for a much needed service. Turns out he’s not had a service since Monday – 20th December 2010. Just really hope it’s does not cost anywhere near as much, as last time. when it set me back £277.69. I am hoping more around to £100 to £150 this time. It will be great to have fully working breaks and gears again. It had gotten to the stage where my back break did not work at all. And my front break was getting ready to also give up :(.

Oh and in other news, at long last I have sent off my passport application form. Since I am going to my big brothers wedding in Cyprus during September.
