    there you go, you could always get another one, its not one of a kind. if you give me that one you can have a new one, i'll pay you for the postage and package. so you don't feel done and i don't feel like i have got somoething for nothing.

    hey! what the hell i'll chuck in the cost of a beer and a large chips and gravy, we could always haggle about a possile fish, hows that sound, we got a deal:D

    Here is my bike, I love this bike! I've only had it a little over a week and I've put 150miles on it! I don't know if that's a lot, I'm just a beginner but I love riding it and can't get enough.
    It's like being a kid again, I started riding to get in shape and for exercise but now I just get on and ride because it's fun. Doesn't seem like exercise at all!

    Howdy Gavin,
    Thank you! I really enjoy my bike. My wife is very jealous. I come home from rides and all I talk about it my rides and how nice it is outside and seeing the countryside. Her bike is coming in the mail, hopefully this week so we can ride together. I don't know if she'll ride as much/often as I do but I hope she'll enjoy it as much as I do.
    Like I said earlier, it's like being a kid again. People talk about how their butt gets sore or their muscles. I guess mine are sore...not really though. It really helps having a fitted bike. I used to have another road bike that was too big for my body-frame and would be sore and stiff (neck, shoulders, back ,etc). Now I just get on and ride, sometimes my rear-end was sore at first but after a few days it seemed to go away. Now I just can't wait to get out there and take it for a spin. Thanks again and keep riding!

    :D

    Sorry to join the party late, but it was just a pile of bits till last night. Every part has been bought in a sale or special offer, I built it for less than £500. Its has a 105 group ( with a little tiagra). No prizes for spotting the deliberate mistake :eek:

    lovely colour! just like mine yellow. but mine got 2 tyres, there wouldn't happen to be a tyre missing would there. ?

    you want to buy a good second hand brand new yellow tyre just like your front one, try camza cycles on ebay you can get 2 for a 10er since you obviously run out of funds...lol

    i now you said it only cost you 500 but do you think by making cutbacks on things like tyres wouldn't cause problems.

    Thank you my friend. As it happens I did buy two tyres from e-bay but I snapped two tyre levers getting the front one on, those tyres are realll tight on the rim, going to the bike shop to get new levers today.
