A New Life For My Old Haro
It is with some regret that I’ll be rehoming my Haro tonight. After almost 10 years of loyal service including two Manchester to Blackpools and two Over the Edges, my trusty chrome and blue steed is being collected later to be given a new life in the moors just outside Rochdale.
With forks showing their age; a front mech devoid of fine adjustment capbility due to too many times crammed into sheds and squeezed onto bike racks; untrue-able wheels and an ageing bottom bracket, it’s definitely time that she was put out to grass.
Her new owner has promised her lots of fresh air, good clean mud and a new life as a single speed fixed fork hack. I think she’s going to love it. I just hope Jon doesn’t break her as often as he seems to break his main ride! Oh and Jon, don’t forget to fit a saddle or you’ll be redefining the term “fun bike” 😉
Goodbye Old Friend. Enjoy your new life in the hills.
