1898 and counting

Well I’ve finally done it. After months of searching for it I have bought another bicycle frame. I’ve been wanting to replace my commuter rigid steel frame bicycle with a lightweight hard tail aluminium frame.

There have been times when I have taken my commuter off road and each time, I’ve come back and felt like the flesh had been shaken off of the bones of my arms, I think I now understand the term “boneshaker” 😉

I am now the proud owner of a Marin Hawk Hill lightweight frame coming in at 1898 grams.

Not the lightest, but a LOT lighter than my old steel frame. All I need for it is – everything!!!

So there is going to be some fun over the next few months as I put together some pieces to get this on the road, or rather off-road.
