Thanks, I feel like a different man. Im doing the Three Peaks climb next year! I just love being back outdoors. I had an operation that knocked me back and kept me off the bike for 6 months.

Stu, If your ever in the Cambridge area your welcome to take it for a spin.

Chris, That Ms-Isle is going to be a weapon. I have have an eye open for a Ms Isle frame myself.

I would paint it that gorgeous blue that the 2012 5 comes in.

3 peaks blimey you're a brave man. Know a few friends who have done it and it's really not easy!

Thanks. Yea I know the blue. I'm rather smitten with it.

Took the Whyte, I survived the Red Routes but my saddle didn't.

One broken Specialized Avatar BG later and I have a Charge Spoon on order.

New very unexciting pics soon.

Was dead happy with how the bike felt really putting it through its paces.

Very confidence inspiring.

Big fan of the charge, nice saddles and very reasonable. Cheers for the offer of a ride, never in Cambridge though!

The Whyte had a new Charge Spoon saddle and some wider, higher rise bars bolted on this weekend. Picked up a bargain pair of Easton's from my LBS.

I'm out riding tomorrow night so will try and snap some pics.
