Had 2 great ride on it this weekend. 8 hours in the saddle on Saturday with a good mix of road bridleway and singletrack with some pubs thrown in., Despite only realising in the last mile that my seatpost was back to front (sky high saddle nose), my grundle wasn't feeling too bad. Had another 2 hours yesteday morning around windsor great park and some more bridleways and am even more confident i made the right choice in giving this bike another chance. it really feels like a new one.
Which I suppose, barring the frame, it really is
