Why buy new

A couple of weekends ago I did a 32 mile return journey to pick up another bike .

The bike I was going to look at had been described as In good condition with no use for the last 18 months . The bike I saw upon arrival looked as it had only seen minimal useage at all .

I just don’t understand why people go and buy a new bike and then never use them and then sell them for a lot less than they paid for them in the first place . I can only presume they have money to throw away .

So if anyone fancies a very lightly if used at all Dolan Preffisio then you know who to get in touch with .

Fitted with SRAM rival 2 X 10 gearing and matching calipers with a SRAM red crankset , Shimano rs10 wheel set all of which look like they have done little miles if any at all .

Look kg231

I have often looked at Look branded bikes but up until a couple of weeks ago I had never owned one .

This one previous owner from new specimen turned up recently and I thought that it looked like a nice example so placed a fairly low bid in to see what happened.

A couple of days later and I was the only bidder so it ended up belonging to me .

It’s a full carbon frame that has been very well looked after. In the last couple of years it has been used as a single speed around town and general hack bike .

I would like to get it back to having some extra gears and a set of drop bars again , but first I need to find or adapt a front derailleur hanger to mount in the original position .

This is the nearest I have come across so far , just needs a bit of fine adjustment to the mounting holes .

So far I have used it on a few commutes and it feels very nice.
