hi guys i went to see bike and liked it a lot seat was very high , way high for me . just need to move it . the guy was way bigger than 5,10 so think maybe he had seat high bec of that .

he gave me a pair of clip in shoes and they fit like a glove that was luck,

and race shirt ...

bike looks great he has looked after it .has been kept in his work shop .i thought he was going to cry when i was leaving wanted to show me pics of him in the paper with bike .really emotional about letting it go . .
could only see a few paint flakes will put pics up...so got him to 180 for bike what do you all think.

just cant wait to get out and now it snowing . how do you unclip shoes just about killed myself lol

A great deal and an honest price - in my opinion. You will learn about clipless pedals after you fall off once - and i am serious!!! Go carefully and slowly and practice a few times - it is easy - it must be if i can do it!!!

Well done with the buy,

Richard

Enjoy your new bike! The seller sounds like a really nice, helpful guy too - always good to buy from someone who appreciates cycling and is willing to throw in a few extras to get you on the move.
