Lol! Same here. 200 - 300Km a week riding, squash, swimming, weights... Ah, the life of a uni student. Then I got a job where I sit on my arse all day
hehe....like Uni wasn't the best thing ever! Those were the days.

lol...unfortunately it is my nerdish tendancies that have lead me on my quest. Working in IT seems to be a great way to push you towards a health kick.

I agree on it being a touch on the expensive side. It was more than I had originally intended to spend. I am someone who likes quality though and I would rather invest in quality than face the same issues I had with the old MTB in the shed.
I have been doing the commute 2-3 times a week few months (more 2 than 3 if I am honest about it
). Already I have found the investment worthwhile after my second commute in for this week. The lifetime warranty on the frame was a big selling point for me. The deed is done and I am fairly comfortable with the outcome. Time will tell I guess.

What is the ettiquette on naming names so to speak? Is it ok to name the store you were happy with? Bad form to name the one you werent happy with? I wouldn't mind giving a plug to a couple of places that I went to that were quite helpful. Mind you, Canberra being what it is, most people doing the rounds would know straight away as you say...hehe
