Location: Looking at my bike from the comfort of my sofa!!
I won a set of Easton bars and a stem from Ebay.

It was late Monday, the postage said 2nd class/recorded. So I estimated posted out Tuesday, 2nd class is normally a day longer...delivered Thursday.....Perfect..Wife at work, I am off no one will ever know.

Its Wednesday, door bell went.....Mr Postie with a big handlebar/stem shaped box......Bugger!!

Wife shouts from Kitchen..."whats that?"..

Er.....erm....!!!

Caught red handed!

:?

Haha. You need to take on a project for a friend. It has worked wonders for me being able to say, 'Oh its for Chris' bike.'

Aye, everything I own is either black or silver with red things on... Worst move was going from a hardtail to a full sus as that is a little obvious. :oops:
