Congleton GB Keen roadracing/turbotraining biker
Its lighter than most others. You don't need the heavy double or triple front gears - so get rid!!! It is a good climber without the heavy front gears so its good to reduce weight and good that the complexity upfront is removed - afterall on this sort of bike one is not going to be doing serious hills; just road and track.
photo advertising it seemed to suggest it would come with the sort of side-pull brakes one might expect on a road bike. Instead, it arrived with the cheap brakes typically found on this sort of a bike,

The mud guards tend to rub against the tyre. Mud guards are good but I might end up taking these off if I cannot "force" some more clearance.
