Simple put, Im converted. Got this at the end of this week (thanks Clockwork Gazz!). So today was the first test ride and I enjoyed it so much! Might stick a light on my Camelback and go for a ride tomorrow evening too :twisted: I fitted the front brake on Friday night but couldn't change the rear because of a rounded bolt. So sorry for the odd levers and the odd rotors. Also the odd bit of packing tape that I didn't remove on Friday :oops: I have now changed the rear brake, with help from the drill! I confess I have now also lined up my valves with the rim decals too! 8)

Heres a couple of pics from my day out.

Thanks for the comments guys! C'mon Gazz, everyone knows that you go faster when they are lined up :wink: Stu- Yeah it is Snelsmore Common it linked up to a nice Bridleway (see 2nd pic) and sweeps to a nice quick decent, just watch the nettles and spikey hedge! 8)
