Your life (and garage) will not be complete until you have one.

There's some beauties out there.

Not everybody's cup of tea. Didn't think it would be mine but decided to see what the fuss was all about and found that it was ok. Bit of a change y'know?

Still prefer MTB's though.

:)

Absolutely. I just like to see folk out on bikes no matter what the bikes are.



You're right Slim, you can go a darn sight quicker on 'em.

A Giant peloton, after I bought it my mate rode it home for me cos I was on my proflex and we stopped at another bike shop (well..... a raleigh dealership anyway), he thought it would be funny to ride into one of them cement parking wells for your front wheel, then the d**k fell to a side bending the front wheel sideways :evil:

2 morals learnt

1. NEVER let your mate ride your bike.
2. Don't bother with raleigh dealerships cos it'll all end in tears.
