Cheers, yeah it is a bit overkill for local rides, but it really gets in to it's stride when I take her to Wales, Scotland, N.Yorkshire, or anywhere with proper hills :wink:

I'll happily let anyone ride her on forum rides, so if anyone wants a blast let me know, oh yeah SPD's are compulsory, I'm not faffing with pedals mid ride :P

There's some good rides just over the bridge from you though? Brantingham cliff, and a bit further over. I used to live near there, clay soils though an sticky with it!

I've decided to use the 5 as my winter bike, it's not been used all summer :oops:

So I've DIY'd a NeoGuard and whacked a rear Crud Catcher on it, the Fizik saddle has been replaced with a Charge Spoon Ti

Just had it up on the newly acquired digital scales

The result: 28lb 1oz (12.7kg)

Not bad as I was aiming for 28lb, can't wait to blast round the trails on it
