Rather than keeping my new sequoia, I ordered in a brand new carbon bike!
I’ve gotten myself a Cube Attain GTC SLT Disc Road Bike 2018 – hydraulic disc brakes, carbon frame, weights 8.4 kg.
Should do the job for transcontinental just fine I think! Can’t wait to get my hands on it and start doing some mileage!
A few weeks I found some rust accumulating on my the chain stay tube whilst cleaning bike, it turned out to be a crack:
I bought the bike just year ago from Evans and I still had a years of warranty on the the frame. Stripped the frame and popped to the shop to book it in.
Specialized agreed to replace the frame, except they sent back a complete new bike! rather than only just the frame. Pleasantly surprised!
