.... I'm sorely tempted...

Sitting here, waiting for the shower room so I can change and get on my trusty steed home...

And eyeing up this bike shaped package that arrived earlier for my CIO... who's on holiday for a week....

He did say he'd bought new bike (obviously off eBay)... if I peer through the tear in the wrapping I can see the letters "Ce..." and the whole thing weighs next to nothing... despite all that cardboard...

    You saw the courier drop it on the way in and you wanted to make sure it hadn't got damaged.

    Best to make sure the frame is straight too, take it for a quick spin. A few hundred miles should do.

    mmmm I had thought about giving it a nice home for the weekend... but that would have meant riding it home through all the traffic and it probably wouldnt be used to that...
