Hmmm...nice!

Hey Ed, have you bought a frame today despite our 'one bike' and 'spend no more money' conversation last friday? :shock: :wink:


erm... :oops: it caught me off guard. I submitted a cheeky low bid and secured it. It's identical to my one, which needed a few donor bits. I am however selling a set of RC35 MXCDs soon though to pay for it :wink: :lol: (you can't get away with anything on this site... :shock: :lol: )

Just finished watching Bellville and drinking red wine...holidays are great!

@Rob: Thanks. It's part of a wider panorama I've drawn for a website were working on at school promoting Nottinghamshire as a good place to work. I was trying out scaling vector images and I though it would make a good avatar :)

@Ed: I was hunting for shiny brake levers when I happened upon your indiscretion! Fist time I've looked in weeks and there you were :wink:

Have you seen these? I've ordered two sets ready for winter. They'll go on the handlebars. Let's see what they're like. You can get gold ones (I didn't spot this till too late).

Possibly Tues 10th (but may not be back in time)
Tues 24th
Tues 31st

Can't do 17th.

May be able to do other evenings given kids are off.

Can I throw in a alternative destination? Maybe one week at the pines whilst it's still light?

Out this morning and it's all riding very well :wink: Wide handlebars aren't too good though trees though...
