After my neighbour/friend Evan bought himself a Polygon 29″ mountain bike a few months ago, I pulled out my antique 2008 Trek Fuel EX 5.5 and began riding again. After hitting the Maydeena Bike Park featured a few post ago, and the North-South track on kunanyi/Mt Wellington, I blew out both front and rear suspension, developed brake issues and will soon need to replace the drive-train (chain and sprockets) as well as requiring a full service.
I took it to a bike shop for a quote – which came back at an estimated $1200!! It just didn’t make sense to spend so much money on a 12 year old bike as technology has changed on modern bikes. Turns out, this is an expensive sport!
After reviewing my budget, I put my name down on a new $3700 Kona Process 134 29
