in Snippets

🚲 My bike went for a full service on Tuesday but I am told that it is “beyond economical repair.” After eight years and 31,000km it looks like our adventures are over. I’m planning to ride it on the indoor trainer until it gives up completely. We’ve had such great times.

  1. @Miraz I paid £799 for it in 2014 but it will cost more than that to repair. It needs a new cassette, chain, chainring, bottom bracket, headset, wheels, bar tape, pedals, cables and brake calipers. The frame will wear out eventually too. When you add in the cost of the labour it makes more sense to invest in something new.
