I'm with dan, my best mate has an alfa 156 in that pale blue colour, it's alright but SHINY always wins for me :) .

Belle soirée? Mais merci pour le compliment, mon ami. (Beautiful evening? But thank you for the compliment my friend.)

Mais je pense que la moto sera beau regard avec la fourche polie. (But I think the bike will look beautiful with a polished turning fork)

Vous devriez avoir deviné que mon français serait une bonne chose. (You should have guessed my French is good)

Comment allez-vous avec flamande? (How do you go with Flemish?)

Mit dansk er ikke så god som mit franske. (My Danish isn't as good as my French)



Hehe, sorry about the french then flemish at the end, just trying to keep you guys on your feet.


Yeah I did think about pure polished aluminium, but it's harsh on the optics when you're trying to ride it & they never brought bikes out like that, Verde Oliva is something like the crystal mint that Ford painted BA/BF Falcons, but it's a lighter shade of green, more silver with green tinge.

Na couldn't work that one out, had to google it.

Ok it's not quite where I thought it was, I thought it was on the coast of the North Sea, but it must be inland somewhere, not sure where Middelfart is.

A bike shop or one of the many online outlets around the world. Just google search for your requirements.

Waz, I'm after a recommendation! You're right that google offers 25,127,452 options, but I'm not entirely sure they're all relevant... ;)

I can easily wander up to the lbs, but if anyone has a specific recommendation let me know?

Seriously, I got the cables from Wiggle for the Gefsco, Jaywire brand as they are what SRAM has used for my Force grouppo on the Roubaix. I think it's just a case of cruisin' for the best deal.

Its been free for the past few weeks but there's a minimum purchase again. A few vittorias sorted that though. Otherwise, bike24 was cheaper...

Its amazing what you can get for a hundred bucks when you put your mind to it ;)
