Any suggestions as to how I go about getting these two past the "Good Lady"
would be appreciated.
No the pink one's not hers.

Neither is the green one.

You just tell her you've had them for years and they've been in the shed/garage etc.

Works for me.

You need to make a 'fake' internet page in which it shows a competition where you can win a bike or two and
after you spent 20euro's in tickets, you won those two bikes! On the bottom of the 'fake' page you'll need to show
winners and runners up names and prizes....Job done :lol:

If she throws you out of the house i'll have the green Basso :wink:

Just got my Cinelli past my wife. I told her that the frame cost less than one of her trips to the hairdressers and I 'found' most of the other bits in my garage.

I think she bought it. (fingers crossed).

I've gone down the "Diversifying our investments" route.

She seems to buy it. :lol:
