my girlfriend started saying things like 'ooh whats that?', and 'thats nice' when shiny things appeared in the mail... this is great i thought...
next thing she asks me is what ringle is after following some of my searches on ebay!
so we hunt ebay and put together a really nice specialized m4 from a frame and bits i had... now she wants a fat chance or a rocky mountain cos the specialized isnt retro enough!!
she got more and more into riding earlier this year and was really enjoying it. then came the day - she took a horrible fall in the peaks - shattered collarbone, lots of torn ligaments/tendans and keyhole surgery to follow. not good at all.
i thought that would be the end of it and she'd never want to go near a bike again (and i wouldnt blame her to be honest!). but it hasnt put her off at all! Whilst she's been off riding shes been hunting ebay and now has a list of red bits she wants along with the new frame! hehehehe!
