Oddly enough,when I got it the frame looked to be painted in satin colours,so I decided a spot of Autoglym wouldn't do any harm and help stop the salt etc marking the frame.So I got loads slapped on and rubbed in well,then went in for a cuppa. Went back outside 10 mins later and took the wax off and low and behold gloss finish :shock: Im guessing the chap whom I bought the frame from had either degreased the full bike before the split or it had been left in the sun alot.Either way Im pleased with the result. :D

Even I've had to put some slicks* on a bike just to keep Chris happy. He keeps goign on about road this, road that... and I keep looking at teh bridleway signs :(
:lol:

I just ride whatever is working or almost working at the time. Just don't clean them too well, if at all as it's now dark. Then there is no worry about getting it dirty :D

Of course looking at the recent stream of rides posted up on Strava everyone seems to have had the 'I must stay inside' bug after the clocks changed.

*ok semi slicks/ touring type ;)

I know what you mean about bridleway signs.I never really paid much attention to them until the beginning of this year.Now every one I see(and public footpath signs too :oops:)I wonder where it goes and if its ridable and how many gates/fences I would come accross :D
