nice one Mark. Cheap, but they do the job
get rid of those tyres though...
ps. i weighed my front wheel recently, as i was doing a tyre change, and was shocked that it was around 1.2kg, from this i estimated the rear to be at least 1.6kg, thats darn nearly 3kg on the wheels. If you can spare the cash, it would be worth changing the wheels for something like planet x model B's, which weigh around 1.6kg for the pair.

Im looking to buy a bike for commuting through london - about 11 miles each way (22 miles a day). I went down to Decathalon today and saw both the B'Twin Triban 3 and the flat bar B'twin Fitness 3. Both are 300 pounds and seem quite good bikes. And so Im having a difficulty chosing one.
Any ideas? I have no road bike experience, so toe clips and drops are new to me - are they safe in busy traffic through london. Or should I just stick to a flat bar.
Thanks a lot
Just bought mine on the back of the magazine article, primarily for commuting 15 miles each way on instead of my mountain bike or hybrid - the prevailing wind is a killer sat upright.
£1 delivery and unexpectedly it came with a lovely quick release lighting set - highly delighted!
Now wondering how a couple of plastic mudguards can cost 10% of what I paid for all that lovely metal - doesn't make sense!
