Bit of a hipster clone, but lovely to ride

Another test ride booked tomorrow

I can get one for £90 a month renting on PCP, for 3 years

Why not?

Why not indeed! What's the mileage clause? I just about have space for another bike & if the insurance is bearable I'd give up drinking to cover it :lol:

Why not? You hardly ride the one’s you already have.

For me, £90 a month is not a lot of money but the stress ofhaving one of these things on lease would do my head in - I much prefer to own the wheels I ride so I can do with them as I wish.

That's true, getting bored of biking...................so this might give me some inspiration

I’m the same, most of the riding I do is days out with various social groups. Planning a couple of tours - end of this month and September but can’t really say I’m fired up about them. Having 9 bikes in the shed, some of which are projects and some are for sale, I don’t think getting another bike to relight the flame is the answer

The Mrs has hinted she would like to join in on my love of riding, that won't work with my current CRF250 (commuting) & CCM for grinning. We won't be doing 3 weeks around Europe, so maybe a hipsterish comfort racer is the answer

RnineT based bikes are really small so make sure you get a two up test ride before committing.

It's ironic how when we get old enough to afford our hearts desires ....... the desire goes :?

£90 month is cheap for that! But is there a down and final payment? Usually is on these pcp deals? Getting a loan,and buying outright is probably cheaper long term??
Think they ignore the mileage clause if you trade up after 3 yrs?
