How far can you go on £12 ?

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 .
