needed a light bike to get to the GYM and back and for fitness/cardio work that wouldnt put miles on the dekerf.

thankfully Si (sithlord) came to the rescue before i spent a fortune on a bike on e-bay, cheers bud.

carbon fibre riser bars and XTR V brakes and levers.

keeping things simple and light as its ideal for what i need....getting fitter!

i possibly will when i get a nice space indoors for it to live. at the moment it lives in a bike shed and it is meant to be a cheap bike to get about on......though that is already starting to change :lol:
