who gives a toss about guided tours- we are mavericks, loners, weirdos, ploughing our own furrow- lets get lost later on, that's wot I say.

I am not a sheep!









Baa Baa :lol:

Livestock gets to come on site but can only leave via the chimney.
Worrying comparison to certain camps in 1940's Europe don't you think.
I'm just following orders........................

Don't half make me want a lamb casserole though :roll:

Again, cannot decide on my SS steed, too much choice, Trek looks well cool but I think a little too stiff from a comfort point of veiw, help I can't decide :roll:

Not helping my decision Kaiser, do not need another choice.

Anyway Stumpies rigid forks fit trek perfect so Trek goes rigid for first ride and the Trek is dead lightweight so may even build up as you suggested with eno wheel and even a high for me 2:1 ratio.

Geometry for an alloy bike is surprisingly old school looking added to by my wide riser bar high stem combo. Unless it rides awful I think Trek in with a good shout for Dalby.

Unlikely to make CV tomorrow for test ride, the dreaded ME is acting up at the mo :(

I think it would be cool you on a shiny GT but I have yet to see the trek so you are by far the better judge.
