    With the help of Ian and Norm I present my new Secteur Elite chuffed to bits.

    Initial thoughts on first ride for 10 years

    Ouch saddle
    Hills suck
    Tail winds rock
    Why the f**k did I go this way this hill is 2 miles long
    Thank f**k this thing came with a triple
    S**t this is scary going 33mph
    :biggrin: another hill I need to lose 4 stone ( I knew that anyway that's why I brought the bike he he)

    Great bike but it was supposed to come with 25cc but it came with 23cc ( would there of been a big difference )and a rival saddle instead of avatar personal i prefer the look of the saddle I got .

    Nice bike and don't worry about the tyres, you would have replaced them with 23mm anyway.

    Nice. I notice they have changed the paint scheme of the Elite since I originally bought mine last September...
    You won't notice a difference with the tyres.


    Oh yeah.. that plastic disc on the rear wheel... it's gotta go...!
     
  4. Nice kilf - happy riding - it will all become 'routine' as your body adapts.
    (Please get shot of that plasticky bit around the back wheel though. Post it to Norm, who collects them! :biggrin:
     
  5. +1 on getting rid of the plasticy bit(think of the weight saving;)) I changed to 23's and you won't notice any difference really.
    Nice bike,and norm's wages go up again:biggrin:

    Yay! :biggrin: Yet another! I think I may have sold one on the climb up Archway this evening. Got chatting half way up the hill after I stopped hitching a lift and offered to return the favour. Sounds like he fancied the Elite for the 105 kit. I personally went for the colour before the kit and got the white Secteur Sport. :biggrin:

    Are you going to use the bike to commute? If so then keep them, unless they stop you adding more lights. :biggrin:
