Nothing fancy, but it's great to ride and I love the look of it (which is all that really matters...LOL)

LOL....I think the photo makes it looks bigger than what it actually is.

It's a Topeak Wedge (Large) and helps me to carry 2 spare tubes, 2 CO2 cannisters, tyre levers, multi-tool and usually my phone, keys and a muesli bar or two.

I like to be prepared :lol:

It's the best couch I've ever had! It's a double recliner too, so I'll be able to sleep on it when the minister for war and finance gets home and finds out I bought a new bike.

Heres my new project bike that I picked up recently. It will be getting a full rebuild and revised running gear.

It will be my commuter to work and I will use it for my regular charity races coming up.

I may end up selling the Kestrel Triathlon bike and go for something a bit more widely accepted in events.

While I'm no fan of white bike, I gotta say that that's a very nicely assembled bunch of tubes. The frame looks very sleek.

What crankset is that if I may?

Enjoy the ride. I have something very similar in matt black with fulcrum racing 4 wheels and am very happy with it.
