As 2006 is drawing to a close it's time to look forward to 2007.

Interested to hear what people are going to be looking for next year.

Personally I'm going to be trying to finish off my existing projects and will be looking for two new rides next year, a steel colnago and a pace rc 100. Let's see how things pan out.

Get the Yo finished in time for my birthday in Feb, then spend the rest of the year enjoying it! Also heard that the guy who bought my Marin Eldridge Grade from me now only lives 5miles away, so will be trying to buy it back if he still has it... And trying to find a Yo Betty for t'other half!

My house purchase completes in early Jan so I'm looking forward to a year of DIY and spending money on power tools and paint rather than shiny bike bits.

Having said that, I have a set of wheels with singlespeed hubs sat around doing nowt in the garage so I will be looking for a nice frame that I can build up as a SS. Nothing in mind yet, but always got my eye open :)

I am looking forward to finishing this house off so I can get back to the mountains.

Also looking forward to the finishing touches on my Fisher RS1 Pro - which will probably lead me to sell it and find another project?!

Oh - and summer of course! Light nights and long evening rides :D
