.....seriously? A bicycle costs THAT much ? What else did you have to buy that cost half a grand Cam? Kind of expensive.
Some bikes cost substantially more than that Dug, 2, 3, 4 grand. Hell some are over 10 grand.....10 grand I know !!!
Bought pedals with it that cliked into the boots around 200 and then a seat, few pairs of gloves, few pairs of padded shorts, few cycling tops, good pump, lights, helmet.....now when I think about it I may have spent more than 500.
I could have spent a lot less Dug but since I was going to using it everyday for over a year I wanted good gear making my journey more comfortable and quicker.......to give you an idea every Wednesday I would have to cycle to Possil, that would take me an hour or so. After that at 12 I would then have to go to govan, another 1/2 hour cycling......then after that another hours cycling to castlemilk with 2 big steep hill knocking fuck out me.
Then after all that at 9 at night after starting cycling at 8 in the morning I would have a half hour cycle home.....all in all on a wednesday I would spend just over 3 hours travelling to work in all weathers !!!
So having the right gear was important and also a bike that is quick. I started off with a mountain bike but it was hard work given the multiple journeys I had and distance.....road bike I almost halfed my journey time.
