Today I give my new Trek 8.3 DS Hybrid Bike it’s first real test. Mainly since I did the longest cycle it’s done so far since getting it. Also it’s the first time I have used it off road. I used it, while cycling along the Grantham Canal towpath. I also used the bike’s bike front suspension. I normal have it locked. Since I just find, all I do is bounce up and down. So it’s nice to have suspension, but can’t see me using it that often.
I will now leave you with the route map, elevation graph and route statistics.
I am so happy. Today I drove down to Rutland Cycling to get Trek 8.3 DS Hybrid Bike bike. So far I am very pleased with it. So far only done a very short 5 mile cycle on it. I was hoping to do a longer cycle. But it took me a good 30 minutes. Just to take the pedals off. So I could put my clipless pedals on it. But I am sure the bike and my bum, will soon get to know each other very well indeed!!
I am sure most of you will have read that my Marin Muirwoods 29ER ’09 bike is no more. Due to fixing a big crack in the frame. So I have ordered myself a new bike from Rutland Cycling. Which all going well, I should get at some point this week. I am getting a “Trek 8.3 DS Hybrid Bike – 2013” at a cost of £525. Which I am paying £150 for. My Mum and Dad are paying the rest! Since they know, I could not life without a bike. So big thanks to them for helping to pay for it!!
