Ooo, i research into this. Ive recently sold my old frame so ill probably have to source a new one.


I'd suggest a crappy old frame to see if you like it first, especially if you're on a budget.


I'll probably look around on the streets (literally) for old steel frames.
My friend recently found a old red Colnago frame :shock:

What size frame do you need Wilson? There's this near complete old Apollo something or other in the shed you can have for a lobby.

EDIT ST is 52 cc, TT is 56cc (roughly)...

Thanks for the offer, but i need a 53-53 TT.
Even if the size fits me, it would be mission impossible to convince my mom to let me buy it :lol:

good job wilson!

You will just be able to ride further and further as you train.

I started 1 1/2 years ago and did 30km a day for a few weeks.

1 year into riding I completed my first 210km Around the Bay two days after I turned 14

Thanks for the support.
I'll probably be doing the 210km Around the Bay ride this year with a friend (I'd ride that far alone) :lol:

It'll be good to see another young person out there.

I don't think I saw anyone under 16 do it last year.
