You have no doubt read my waffle before about my Allez and then my father falling for road bikes again and his bargain of a Carrera TdF, etc.
Well he loves my Allez as it is light (for price point)and he loves the curve of the seatstays, etc. So yesterday turns up with a silver one of his own!
Finding it in his size and on sale at £399 he could not resist.
As for the TdF - well my son now has just got his first and very nearly new, road bike!
I have a couple of plans to make it more 'his' but other than that I think the TdF is a great bike for him to start out on.
