She gets round a bit :)

I bought that frame from America a couple of years ago and I think you're at least the third owner since me.

Here's how she looked when I owned her:

Yeah, I'd seen that photo. Realised it was the same frame when I checked my frame number.
I was going to post that photo, to show some of it's provenance, but thought I ought to ask first.
She may have gotten around a bit in the past, but I think she's a keeper for me. My Dad had a steel Axis years ago and he's always regretted selling it, think he'd kill me if I sold this :lol:

Thanks for the reassurance.
It's not that I'm particularly unfit, just that I don't get out as often as I used to/want to/bikes warrant :oops:
Looking forward to the ride though :)

Cheers,
Pat

I went a bike ride on my own this morning around Sherwood Pines, the bike's a beast, and I wasn't (too) bad considering I was at work last night!
It was only an hour on the Blue loop, but that was enough for me today.
