I got one! I got one!

So, bright and early, I got myself down to my LBS and had a great time!

I bought a.... Specialized Rockhopper Pro Disc 2008 - and saved a shed-load of cash by not wanting the 2009 version :D

I tried out a Myka, but it just didn't fit right! It's funny, but after my worrying about the fit and difference between men's and women's bikes, it was the men's bike that worked for me after all! I didn't even need to swap the saddle - it was as if it was made for me!

I've left her with the shop to check it over, give her a good going over and swap the pedals round and I'll pick her up next Saturday.

She's a beauty - photos will follow :mrgreen:

    Im confused here I thought that Men had female bikes and Women had male bikes ( If you had to sex and name them of course in a purely hypothetical way . . . I base this on not wanting to ride a Man :oops: myself )

    The wife fully understands when I say that I am going out to ride the A*se off of Jessica ( My Bikes Name ) But would look at me strangely if I said I was going to ride the A*se off of Jeff ( Male equivalent of Jessica ? Possibly )

    Ladies please clear this up for me or I will be confused all weekend :D

    Thank you all - yes, yes, yes I'm very happy! Also a bit of a bonus that she may be better specced than the 09 version.

    Right, to clear up the male/female bike name thang.

    Some bikes are (like cars) naturally boys and naturally girls, as Ditch Witch said.

    However... deadliest.... I completely understand your point of view. I can't imagine your wife would be too happy about the 'Jeff' scenario! :wink: And it might make you feel a bit iffy too!

    So, let's turn that around shall we? I can't imagine my girlfriend being too happy about me telling her I'm just popping out to ride the a*se off Dave... :wink::D:wink:

    Capice?

    By contrast, I expect Mr DW would become positively moist if I said I was off to ride the censored off of Vicky :lol:

    I thought you meant 'er indoors! 'Bit nosey' I thought to myself before realising you meant my new steed...

    She's called Sadie. And she's wonderful.

    Henry - it was sheer luck. I see you also saw the light :D

    If that's what floats your boat, matey!

    Although she is perfectly formed so I doubt I'll be getting any! I was thinking more along the lines of Sexy Sadie myself.... :wink:

    And my halo is a tad tarnished, DW :wink:
