Pah!

You know fine well you can get the Fortnum & Mason 'Carbon Weave Classic', with the Ti brace and onion hangers at 420g all in! (Or if you are feeling rich there is the 'Grocery Dash', full aerodynamic fairing crash resistant kevlar/carbon technology combined with ample storage for those last minute dinner party items, available from all good bike suppliers.)

Just wait until I get my steel Spaceframe, I will take you out and show you how to shop for dinner! :)

bike radar and mtbr can get a little heated, there like a bunch of kids in the school ground some of them.

I think its stunning. And when it comes to any hobby price is irrelevent so long as you can afford it.

Some people just dont get it, its not about whats better for a specific job, its what makes you smile. all hobbies are about making you smile and getting away from the mundane of day to day life.

If life was about best tools for a job everybody would own a Focus and people wouldnt ever buy a Ducati. Bad times!

There is something so beautiful about these little boutique frames.

theres a lot of bike snobbery going on, some people need to chill and just enjoy there bikes rather than get all worked up over other peoples.

thanks for the kind comments folks.

Even worse its like reverse snobbery!

Some people hate to see others doing well.

I tend to applaud it and see stuff like that as an inspiration. Well done Sir.

So, are you going to be keeping it?

If I hadn't spent every last jot of my savings moving house I would have it in a flash!
