What a tough day this has been, I've had to look busy all day :shock:

It also cost me over £200 as I ended up buying shinny bike bits as well :lol:

    i had meetings so no real loss for me, just had to browse other websites instead or actually respond to questions which of course I know the answer to!

    What about the rear mech, cassette, chainset and wheels to fit an 11 speed on?

    Work is a necessary evil and unfortunately, I have done too much of it lately but i'll be off to slightly sunnier climes soon.

    Probably is a bit wasted on me but it looks good :wink:

    Got all the other bits already, been buying them bit by bit, just a new cassette to buy.

    I didn't know Pina was rich. Idle, yes, but not rich.
    Then again, he does ride a Pinarello so the signs are there.

    Now that the e-mail topic reply notifications have been retrieved out of the spam folder...

    'Idle Rich', never. ever been called that.

    @Blakey - I have a Wilier, a Colnago and a Pinarello. What does that make me?

    FWIW, all second hand and the Pinarello is an old Galileo, Alu., now retired.
