    Lets just hope there are more people around wondering why they have done it and then offloading them on E-bay.

    I am above 35. :oops:
    I have bought many folding, racing, single speed, cyclocross, hardtail, FS bikes in the last 3 years. :roll:
    And I have sold just a few. :wink:
    I have done over 10000 miles in just under 3 years. it has been tremendous fun. :P

  • Bought it, tried it sold it - moved on to the Spesh Globe Carmel - and no lycra

    I guess I qualify as well. All the more reason for me to shun wearing lycra, to avoid looking like a 'chunky wasp' :)
