my current bike is a $400 Giant MTB that I've been belting around on for years, so I figured it's time to treat myself (Now find a way of convincing wife). I've been riding an old steel framed Repco something-or-other with 105 drivetrain that a guy I work with loaned me. It's a 60cm frame. I weigh around 110kg, having dropped 5kg in the last month or so, now that the weather's improving and I'm out on the old Repco.
