    No chance of having a 3D printer making the replacement part then?

    I started a new job at a hospital this week and the commute is only 2.5 miles, which isn't much at all so I was planning on just doing it on a regular bike.

    However, I was arriving at work a sweaty mess so ordered an ebco tr60 from Halfords. Despite the massive cost that pained me both to spend and tell my wife about, I couldn't be happier. Although only 2.5 miles, on that journey there are 3 inclines, the last one being a real killer. With the ebco I can fly up the hills and arrive at work fresh as a daisy. I still think it's quite a good workout as apart from the inclines I'm usually travelling above 16mph. The only issues I have now are with traffic, although there are some pavements with designated cycle paths so I tend to jump on and off.
    I can really see myself cycling a lot more now I've got this bike. I'm relatively fit but having the assistance when you need it is amazing and great fun. It means you can push when you want to, and not because of the terrain!

    Yes you will. I've probably cycled 10 miles total in my life, on regular bikes. In the past couple of years I've clocked over 6k miles, mostly with my trusty trail hound. Enjoy. :)
