Now, as I stole her CTW allowance to buy my CXeh and promised to buy her a new bike from the tightly strung purse I had to go 'aah' a bit.

Does anyone have a suggestion on a similar vein that will take fattish 700c's and is a little less portly than Fergie on a shire horse?

I do love her you know......

Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast.
