Got Bitten by the Road cycling bug earlier this year after I got this Puch off of ebay to commute on and ended up tagging along on a couple of club runs and never looked back!!

    Bless your wife. What a sweetie
  • I Know, Thats why I married her!!
  • Your wife bought you that? Without prompting, or assistance?

    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    Alternatively, start looking for the dress / shoes / handbag ensemble she's just bought, which undoubtedly cost double what the bike did and which you are not supposed to know about.

    :D

  • HAHA!!, It wasn't so much prompted but more the fact that I was oogiling over nice bikes in magazines and I think my wife wanted a little attention and figured this would stop me from oogiling bikes instead of her, It worked but since she got me the bike she has lost me to the Sunday morning club run :p.

    But Yeah it was her wedding present to me, I got her a bracelet...how bad do I feel!!

    Love the old Puch!!

    Both bikes look as though they need some saddle adjustment, could be the camera angle. However, particularly in the picture of the Puch - the front of the saddle looks to be pointing skywards?

    Surely you must be experiencing some pain with a saddle like that?
    :shock:

    BTW, love the Spesh too, very nearly went for one of them myself.
  • to be honest if i have the nose pointing down any more it hurts too much, i find i sit really far back on the saddle so if the nose is pointing down i end up with too much pressure on the gentleman parts, strange i know, Iv thought maybe the bar set up is wrong or something but i dont know, any ideas?
