your probably right about the cleats..but if you want to you can take it and practice this week.. so if you change your mind it is no problem at all.. its not a new bike so doesn't matter if anything happens..only thing I forgot to mention is that it is PINK
oh sorry I would be no help on the spec of getting a new bike.. one of the lads would probably be able to give you better advice on the frames groupsets etc...
If you look at the picture of the chain ring & chain on the Trek it is very rusty, so my guess is that the bike hasn't been very well maintained so I would steer clear, as you would probably have to put a good few quid in to it, the other bike looks like it has been well kept, so if the size is right it would be a better option.
Thanks Michael, sadly I used my bike to work scheme to buy my hybrid 3 years ago so I have two more years before I can go again
Gill, so kind of you, but think the only day I would get to practice the cycling this week would be Friday which might be a bit late. Very envious of the pink bike. I am such a pink girl
Colm, yes I had noticed the rust and was thinking the same thing about it not being well cared for. No word on the size of the other bike yet. I wonder if I am better off paying that bit more and getting a new bike and tapping into the knowledge of the shop as to what I should get as I have no idea - although that could make me an easy target for them to sell me something that far exceeds what I need right now or something that I will only end up upgrading sooner rather than later! I'm open to any advice people have on bikes as I really know nothing!
Hi Veronica, it's too late for this weekend but if you are interested in a second hand bike (Felt) which is a small fit I'm off loading mine...it would be a good starter bike and I'm not looking for much for it. You'll need to leave it in to a bike shop just to get a few bits done but I can talk to you about that if you're interested. It's a shimano 105 groupset...well a good bit of it Anyway if you want to get a look at it let me know & no worries if you don't.
