Wow Briztoon, Absolutely gorgeous ride. That Matt Grey is stunning. Congrats for getting out on the bike again.

I'm looking forward to riding the roadie on longer rides, including some during my 4 weeks leave coming up soon, but this one will probably stay at work for lunch time training.

Cheers,


Tony


860km in the last 3 months is very impressive. Making use of lunch time rides is an excellent way to rake up some extra kms in the day.

4 Weeks leave would be great, you can get out as much as you want then.

Shiny alloy did nothing to hurt the looks at all Adrian, I hope you get much enjoyment from your steed. :)

Haha Thats hilarious. I love the Sram colour scheme lol Maybe i might look at some zipps or just flat carbon look without the stickers.

Its amazing how a nice wheelset makes to the bikes visuals.

Hahaha thanks :) The colours always come up a bit more when somethings photoshopped, the wheels come out a bit brighter. Challenge Accepted lol

Pooh - a bit harsh, but I agree about the wheels.

I reckon there is way too much aero going on with road wheels these days. If you can read the labels at a glance there is too much aero.

Of course if it's a TT bike there are no limits to what ugliness is allowable.
