    I like the ginger bits. Presumably the close ups are because you can't bear to be any further away from it?

    When LiT has cleaned the flat. The close ups don't show all the crap collected in the corners, much like my flat :oops: Why clean the flat when the weather is saying ride your bike?

    Very nice! My LBS (Velocity) has one in the green hanging on the wall- awesome bit of kit, but I'd want a discount if it was that colour. The orange looks fantastic though..
    What sort of bespoke setup did you go for? I'm curious if they've got a 'typical crap potholed British road/cycle lane' option :)

    Dammit. Can't give that a test ride, I'd colour clash.

    Lit, looks great (the bits we've seen). I get on well with my Ksyrium elites so those premium sls should be pretty decent. Enjoy :D

    Didn't get that on C2W did you!!! It is beautiful, I am jealous and you are going to enjoy every second on that. Have you named it yet?

    Amazing what you can pick up in Hereford, aside cows and cider!

    Enjoy in the beautiful weather today!

    Pretty impressive seamless booty I must admit. Not sure about all the Italian liquorice allsort tats but they probably grow on you the longer you look at them. Must avert gaze..... think only pure de-decalled thoughts......

    @redvee: It's not a flat, it's my little cottage in Essex, and it's never dirty. :P I was waiting for the light - my cottage is too busy to be a nice background.

    @G66: it's brilliant. Just..... brilliant. It feels like it's doing half the work for you. Been on my 25m loop this morning, back home now plotting another 30m this afternoon!

    Oh and:

    Probably about the right size for me ... must remember not to wear red - that would clash with the orange...

    Very nice but you do know you'll never be able to pootle or ever have a recovery ride again! plus your FCN is now top of target board what with the shaved legs and all :wink:

    Indeed, very nice. Don't want to be a kiljoy but hope you have it insured and you have made a note of the frame number and that you don't keep it in the garden shed. There are an awful lot of bike thefts occuring from sheds at the mo.

    That isn't fixed or singlespeed, I can see (gasp), gears...

    Are you putting your panniers on it too?

    Yep, got the frame number, all the costing etc for insurance, it's going on the H&C policy with any luck.

    Done a fair few miles today on it and it's just awesome. I love it - so responsive... I could rave about it all day. It's like rediscovering cycling.

    @G66 - it would cost you waaaaay too much to replace 2/3 of your cycling wardrobe. Blue doesn't go with it either. Also, I am rather protective of it... you know how you shouldn't get between a lioness and her cub? Yeah.
