CARRERA VENGEANCE LTD EDITION MOUNTAIN BIKE (Mettallic grey with illuminous green logo)
Braking Brake Caliper Front Shimano BR-M445 hydraulic disc brake Brake Caliper Rear Shimano BR-M445 hydraulic disc brake (PDC - Great brakes but makes a noise in wet conditions)
Drive Pedals Wellgo alloy platform
Gearing Derailleur Front Shimano FD-M310 Derailleur Rear Shimano Alivio RD-M410 Gears 24 Shifter(s) Shimano SL-M360 (PDC - Gears are a life saver up steep inclines but took some sussing out)
General Handlebar Kalloy mid rise bars Headset SEMI INTEGRATED Saddle Carrera (PDC - Now i know how saddle tramps feel. Saddle was a little uncomfortable for a novice rider who didn't take speed bumps seriously...i do now!) Stem Ahead aluminium stem Weight 14.75 kg (PDC - Weights not bad for lifting over secure bike stands for that ultimate security lock or over gates if you get locked out)
Suspension Fork Travel 100mm Forks Rockshox Dart 1 (PDC - Top marks for suspension especially for drop curbs and the ocassional full curb or road pothole)
Wheels Hubs Alloy with Q/R Rims Double wall alloy rims Wheel Size 26" (PDC - Only problem with the wheels is my off-road tyre tread is too chunky for ultimate grip, and can be a little dodgy going up deep drop curbs. But too lazy to get a new set yet. Only pumped them once in 12 months) Had one puncture so got new puncture resistant innertubes which touch wood will save my bacon.
Security ( PDC - I use a Raleigh Protector 200 Shackle Lock endorced by Jack Hateleys bike shop of Wolverhampton, coz its the same lock they use to lock up the shop )
SUMMARY - Only come off it twice 15 months, but suffered badly bruised ribs and it spoilt my 2009 Xmas on the first fall. However was my own fault after 6 pints and biking home in the dark from the pub in black ice conditions tut tut). It's purely a working bike for me, but very neat and robust for its six mile a day journey.
