Puts my £100 Toys 'R' Us special that I use to shame, both of them.

I'm due to get a new bike soon through the cycle to work scheme as I am racking up some serious miles and it's wearing out quickly!

I do have a Specialized that I use as well but not often as that is in Sheffield and most of my time is in Hull.

I had an Orange 223, Giant AC and a Base SJ26 a few years ago and then I got my car, sold everything and I now work in a bike shop and couldn't resist another bike so here are a few of mine.......

My Orange when I had it a few years ago....


and all 3 bikes (all now sold)



My Lapierre Froggy 518 which I own now.




Still looks like new as ive barely had a chance to use it and I may have also fell off a few weeks ago on my 1st proper time out on it and fractured my ribs.

**In future I need to remember I havn't been on a bike in a few years and not pull on the brakes before a jump and then not get stopped in time and hit it anyway and end up with a saddle stuck in my chest**

The bike will get used sometime and I will be hitting big jumps again soon!

I've just got back into the whole MTB scene after a good number of years away.

Bought one of these before Xmas as it seemed like the best spec for the £.
Not quite upto the standards set above but it's perfect for what I want it for

As said before, this is my £100 Toys 'R' Us special. It's creaking and groaning more and more and the oil just isn't working as good as it used to! But it has done 375 miles since the beginning of February so not too bad. I did upgrade the headset and bars as the others just rusted to death!

I've also got a Specialized Hard Tail. Not sure of the exact model but I bought some Megura Julie, is that the name? Still very new to MTB, hydraulic disc brakes but my fitness isn't up to much off roading yet.
