i too have a red addiction! (and blue, 2 bikes)

advice would be, dont go near the internet or bike shops, never carry any cash or cards with you incase you happen to go past a bike shop and cancel your internet contract

lol cash he has.. he did a paper round for 4 years at around 9 quid a week.. now he is earning near on 200 quid a week :) which is a huge jump and he is SO used to surviving on 9 quid a week.. dosnt really have any vice's other than his bike so he tends to save well :)

gets his bike in the workstand this morning for him to give it its weekly tlc and as we clamped it in i commented on how lovely his new goldie lookin chain is.. he put his hand to his neck and said i havnt got one on dad!.. LOL.. i so pointed at said golide lookin chain and said 'when did you add the bling then' (its rusty by the way.. not gold). would seem the 6 days a week back and forth to work have taken their toll on his chain so i insisted he buys another, after all he knows to lube and take care of all bits that move on his bike,, its the law in this house lol and he obviously hadnt done it last week, so we fetched a new chain/rear pads and stocked up on the lubes needed. unfortunately for him and fortunately for his bank the shop was clean out of blue 'ano amazingness' meaning i'll sit and search to the end of the internet tonight to find him some better deals :)

You should have a look at the SRAM PG990 cassettes, very nice and shiny in different colours. I stuck one on the Pace and like it a lot, shifts very smoothly. Crap pic though. Might take some more of the bike tomorrow now it is just about finished.
