AKA jarrowz’s bikes.
Unfortunately, my bikes are far less glamorous. They don’t have names and they are few in numbers. Dare I say it, utilitarian……..
The Green One
My do everything, everyday bike. It is a Giant Womens CRX Two. It has done most things a bike can do – long roadie rides, roadie events, participation events, hauling the groceries shopping, hauling my stuff touring, getting me to and from work commuting, 25km of dirt on a tour, sand on a wine tour and come back for more. It’s also a good colour and has only had the rear cassette replaced recently after probably doing 5 000+km. (I don’t usually ride with a bike computer)
Probably doesn’t get out as much as it should/could. It is a second generation electric pedal assisted after market kit I got from eLation, a Brisbane based home business that was on New Inventors. The kit is mounted on a Giant Cypress bought for this purpose. I’m a bit shy about taking this bike out as it is obviously an electric kit and I worry about it being vandalised. I typically only use it for commuting when I am certain about where it will be locked up. More to come about the ebike in a later post.
