    Recently just bought myself a winter hack. Not wanting to spend more than £150, i managed to get this old Carrera Virtuoso for £60.
    Let's see yours.......

    Mine is the now quite famous knockabout bike (MK3), a heavily modified Hawk Trakatak:

    This afternoon I have fitted Schwalbe Snow Stud tyres to it so of course the forecast is for temps of up to 11C this week. :laugh: Oh well, they'll get a good lot of running in before going on the ice.:rolleyes:

    It's not bad. Had hardly used GP4000 tyres on which are worth about as much as the bike ha ha
    Only been out once but it's a good ride

  15. Yes it is the sea and it is ice. No chains brakes or gears to mess about with and I will still be out and about when all the bikes cannot get out :0)
