Carera Virtuosa Road Bike
#1
Hey guys, as is the standard when selling something I'm offering this on here first before sticking it on STW or Fleabay after next weeks pay day!

I'm selling my Carera Virtuoso Road Bike. Medium size. I just don't use it. I bought it to cheer myself up when me and my ex had a argument. She was right when she said I'd hardly use it. I bought the bike, in April 2009 and it has done less than 150 miles in total. It is still as new and even has the bobble on the tyres!

I paid, £329 for it. It's currently on sale for £299, so I reckon it's worth £180!

I doubt anyone here is interested but I'd thought I'd offer it up here first.

Silly question mate but is it big for a medium?  Undecided.
I am looking for a road bike for the Mrs and she rides a medium MTB but is only short, so it may be too long a reach frame for her. I can see the saddle adjustment for your leg size. What sort of inside leg measurement do you have ?(not prison talk Wink)

I usually wear a 30cm leg jean if that helps? Not sure i know my inside leg measurement. Its not big though, you wlecome to try it out. Or take her to your local halfords and sit on one (enter your own prison talk!) then get back to me. No other interest so far so its your if your quick. It is virtually brand new as well, just no pedals.

Oh one point i do tend to run my saddle high for a short ass!
