    Although I'd lean toward a road bike with drop bars for comfort (being able to move your hands to different positions helps a lot) if you fit a less knobbly tyre to the rear of an MTB, you'll find there's a lot less rolling resistance on tarmac, whilst you still get the knobbly grip on the front in the rough stuff.

    Hi guys it seems like ages now since my last post, well if you aint got a bike its hardly a forum you want to spend time on lol.

    Anyway upto date news Im sitting here having a coffee to wake me up before going off to buy a Carrera Fury 2016 model, a guy about 10 miles up the road bought one, used it a couple of times and stuck it in the garage so with it only being February you could say its almost brand new.

    Im saving £200 buying this against a brand new one. So looks like you might be stuck with me now lol. It could lead to a full blown hobby or it could be a passing faze who knows but you have to start somewhere.

    Photos will be posted when I pick it up.

    Once again thanks for all the replies really appreciated it.

    Good luck with your new ride.
    Start slowly with the miles and in a few weeks you'll feel the difference.

    It's far too clean though!

    Beautiful bike! You did just what I did, bought one from someone who rode it around the block then sat it in the garage. Great find, and it looks good for your purpose. Looks like there are spots to stick a rack on the back so that might come in handy on your trip!
