Just popped into my local bike shop whilst some work was being done on my car, and they had a Specialized Venge, a SL3 in HTC colours and a Cervelo S5! And the SL3 and S5 were both in my size! Managed to escape with my credit card intact...

    Should have gone to the bank manager after the LBS to show off with your new bikes

    He should have his credit card taken away if he doesn't know how to use it properly.

    You are going to give the Scottish a reputation for being tight! :) Stop being canny, and get back in that shop.

    Err, I'm not Scottish! But I do feel very ashamed of myself. Maybe I should buy all three just to make up for my mistake?

    So why do you call yourself greasedscotsman? Do you have a penchat for greased Scotsmen perhaps?

    Surely if I wanted to attract Scotsmen I'd call myself bag of chips? Or deep fried pizza?

    You'd buy the SL3 over the SL4? :wink: (it's 19% stiffer and nearly 60g lighter)

    What, I've got to buy an SL4 as well?

    Ah, ok, well if you want the SL3 I can sell you a used one in immaculate condition - then you'll have more money for the Venge. :lol: (The owner of said SL3 went to see the Venge this week after getting a call from his friend at the Concept Store who told him one had just come in. He went down to have a look and has spent the last 5 days drooling. That was until he read about Contador's SL4 yesterday...... Told him he's got to sell the SL3 to fund a new one)

    Probably the Spesh SL3. I don't like the seat cluster on the Cervelo S5, looks terrible IMO. really like the Venge in black, but the SL3 in HTC colours looks fantastic! I might see if they'll cut me a deal with the SL4 out in a few months.

    :D
