Hello All.

As you will know from my endless questions on here that I have been debating for ages about my bike situation or lack there of a good ride!

Chatted to the lovely lady and I have her approval Mr. Green so I have just ordered this bargain!:

http://www.paulscycles.co.uk/products.php?plid=m1b4s2p2784

A significant step up!

Pics will follow (taken on my new camera as bought by my afore mentioned lovely lady...she is amazing!)

Looks lush. I like the XTC's, if I ever got one though I'd go for the composite version. So much lightness Cool
