The government doesn't check, but individual employers might. You'll need to talk to whoever is getting you the bike and see if they can make some discreet enquirees with their scheme organiser.

Kool, i ordered mine back in June so got the 07 XT, shame cos the adjustable shifter mounts would have been usefull. Wasn't too fussed on the Shadow mech, but it looks good. CF reinforced chainrings are also a touch 8)

Did you get a SS frame and full groupo then, so Merlin sent it out in bits?
