    @NapD - where's the white garage door? the pure side on view? what's going on?

    My winter bike is the same as my summer bike as my wife would kill me for having another bike. I guess I could use the hybrid but I'd rather have a few months on the rowing machine to build up my enthusiasm for spring! :)

    ^Nice, I had a Surosa a while back it wasnt as stealthy as yours though being, as it was Ribble blue. It was a great bike and excellent vfm.

    Keep them coming gentlemen, were all riding our winter bikes now I would imagine. Post them up!

    I pick up my Ribble Ultralite frame tomorrow to build my winter bike. I'll be builing it up with the bits of my old broken Boardman Team Carbon. The frame & fork seemed a very good price.

    A couple that I've just about finished for the wife and I (her summer wheels are not staying on there all winter btw!). She's over the moon with it. They ride well, but don't photograph so well on my phone when it's dull.

    Lots of bits taken off summer bikes kept the prices down. I was lucky to find my TK frame over summer at my lbs for a good price (over 40% off) since it had been previously built up, not ridden, then stripped and stored. They then got to sell me the new TK2 frame and DC07 forks that I put on my bike. So that's kept us all happy.

    Old photo taken just after I got it (or should that be her?), bit dirtier now :D

    taken just after I got it (or should that be her?

    No, it should not. That kind of chat gives me the heebie jeebies. Its always it, That and never her.

    Also getting right on my nipple ends these days is reference to running. WTF? example:
    'I run an SLR on my road bike' No, you use an SLR. Really though, that kind of patter rips my knitting.

    That said, loving the Kona and indeed, the vast majority of the bikes in this thread. I do prefer a dedicated winter bike, proper guards et al. Mange tout :)
