I’ve had enough.
More than enough!
So time to turn to The Catalogue yet again (More on “The Catalogue”) and there’s lots of choice.Now, this looks the job, not too pricy at this real knock down ticket, and I can get an extended warranty too. With a regal name it must be good and just look at those modern rod brakes, just the thing. Once fully kitted out it would be just right. By keeping the illustration I would know at a glance what all the important parts are. But then there’s this Worcester, another regal design. It’s also got a three year warranty so it MUST be better? It’s got best Shelby steel tubing to so maybe, just maybe?And I can get a trade in too. Then I spot this one, pricy at over 11 guineas, but made to my own order. Can I afford to though, but surely Imperial most be way better than Royal? I’ll have to get my pipe out and ponder on this one. Then I spot this, a pure thoroughbred, designed for the job. Bound to be not as comfortable though, can I take the pounding? But look at that front cog thing. It looks so impressive. Oh dear the prices are going up, and with a four year warranty too – must be the best. I couldn’t afford one for each of the family though, so better delve a little more. Now these may be the ones for the kids. They are also “exactly the same in construction, as juvenile cycles sold to the aristocracy” so can’t go wrong here. Maybe my good lady and I would be better off on a tandem, prices are good too. And the fittings seem to be of a high quality too.
Well, I’m all of a quandary. So many bikes, so many options. What is a bloke to do? Think I’ll sleep on it and see what’s what in the morn.
Toodle Pip and Nighty Night all.
