After 37 miles this morning I am fast approaching the 200 mile point with the Falcon Explorer.
Really enjoying the way this bike soaks up the miles .
And the butterfly bar’s are really comfortable to use .
This must rate as the bargain of 2018 .
Well another year is rapidly coming to a close .
And what a year .
I have covered over 5500 miles with a week to go .
I have discovered some new names .
And been reunited with some old friends .
All in all it hasn’t been that bad , how has your 2018 been ?
I reckon we would cover about 60 miles in our car on £12 of petrol at the current £1.16 per litre .
So far I have covered about the same amount of miles on my recent Falcon Explorer 12 acquisition .
Looking at the date stamps on the hubs it’s an early 90’s bike and which looks like it has led an easy life .
This bike will take on the role of my winter / wet weather bike until I get my Marin back on the road .
So far I have swapped the flat bar’s for a set of butterfly bar’s , adjusted the brakes , pumped up the tyres and wiped the dust off it .
This afternoon I have swapped the original tyres for some used Schwalbe Marathons and re greased the hubs .
