UPDATE – New wheels!
It’s very easy to get caught up in the ‘need’ for the latest, shiniest thing, but I’ve always been able to resist. I’m the same with cycles. I could never buy a bike without sitting on it. What it feels like is everything. It really is. Get a bike that ‘fits’ you and the world is yours to explore. Get one that isn’t and it’ll never quite feel right. Revolution cycles fit me. They feel both comfortable and familiar. They’re well made and work extremely well. Comfortable and reliable, that’s all I need.
After all, it’s about the cycling, not the bike.
That said, I’m also a big fan of Edinburgh Cycle Cooperative shops too. I like their brand values.
