Push Bikes!

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...
