Thank you gentlemen for your erudite and amusing replies. I think I may look 'the wrong sort' and ride with what I have until the piggy bank is suitably fattened.
I have nearly completed a road bike with gears this time and intend to put some miles down and try a sportive or two.

For ever changing my mind and my cars
