When the kids were young I bought a used Trek 830 so that I
could go cycling with them. Turns out I got a bargain,
21 gears, centre pull brakes, classy frame, what more could I want.
Well some 19 years on the bike now feels,er, hard!
The bike is a 1997 vintage and doing well.
The lack of anything springy in the frame means I get a traditional
off road ride, but it's still a good bike.
The weight isn't bad and the handling OK, I can even keep up with my
better half's electric bike,
well on short hills and the flat anyway. I just need to get fit...
