New year, new bike

Condor Baracchi Cross

Rule #12 / The correct number of bikes to own is n+1

While the minimum number of bikes one should own is three, the correct number is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

Got to follow the rules and moving to a new country helps. For about an hour now I’ve been an over excited owner of a new lover bike. I had a suspicion back in November when I found out that Condor shop is just around the corner from my office, that one day I might end up giving them chunck of my money. That gut feeling, as always, ended up being being correct.

This being a 2008 model has probably a lot to do with the fact that it had been marked down £400 from its original price but I’ve always bought “old” models and saved a ton. That pic is just a placeholder until I take a better one.

It’s a cyclo cross bike so I might have to take up a new version of my favorite sports…

    Meeldimine on nii… subjektiivne :) Muidugi meeldib, aga kas rohkem, raske öelda. Pigem meeldib, sest aeg ja koht lubavad iga päev sõita ja see on ju põhiline miks ratas meeldib – temaga on võimalik sõita.

    Kindlasti meeldib rohkem ses mõttes, et brändil on lugu rohkem sees, sellega ka kuidagi hinge ja mulle taolised asjad on ikka südamelähedasemad.

    Kaalu, sõidumugavuse, kiirenduste jne osas on küll rattad väga võrdsed, mis siis, et Condor on cyclocrossi mudel.Ma miskipärast arvasin, et need natuke raskemad, aga carbonit on mu Condoris rohkem kui Meridas.

    Campa käiguvahetajad vajavad veel veidi harjumist, piisavalt Shimanost erinev. Kogu kupatus on meeldivalt vaikne, õhtuses linnas vaid kummide sahisedes vuhistada on ikka mõnus tunne. Lisaks kuuled ära, et esiporikas käib hästi-hästi õrnalt nurgaga vastu rehvi :)
