and i cannot wait (even though the weather will be pants all next week :(

it's one of these beauties :D Image

have only ever owned 1 road bike back in the early 90's (a raleigh elan in mint green).it was a lovely bike,until a van pulled out of a roundabout as i was turning right on it/bent the whole front end :(

i plan on doing a couple of short videos when i first get it/it's first ride,initial reactions e.t.c for anyone interested. but i really cannot wait to start riding it (have wanted a road bike for over 20 odd years excluding the time i had my elan :D

Good on you! What is that a Specialized Allez?

Seems the mountain bike boom is dead; long live the road bike! :D
