    if it wasn't for the wear on the crank arms, i'd have said its never been used :lol: that looks in amazing condition, very nice :D

  • Hehe, if I'm honest it has had a year or two off duties as I had newborn baby duties. It's been back in full use now for a while :D It's a great bike and a joy to ride at places like Whinlatter, GT & Cannock Chase.
    I just make sure it's cleaned after every ride and serviced often etc etc. Have thought about selling to fund a full-suss, but can't bring myself to do it :lol:
