I admit that I may have just lost my way with my ‘Wellswheels’ site. However I AM still feeling passionate about cycling and have recently added a new steed to the stable: The SPA Cycles ‘Audax’.
My main reason for this choice was probably to be able to stay with Janet, after ‘upgrading’ her Surly to BionX power. I found that although I am able to keep up with her on flat or downhill, I was struggling going up the steeper inclines when I had to search for the lowest gears, when she only needed to ‘turbo-boost’!
The bike is a joy to ride, I have never had anything quite as ‘sporty’ – it is NOT a racer, but a comfortable distance cruiser, not hampered by too larger carrying capacity!
