But I'm actually fed up of looking for a new bike. I've looked into: Planet X - crap photos and a lack of feedback, though seems good value. Scott CR1 team - apparently a great frame but still going at full retail price and I'm just not inspired by it. 06 Madone 5.2 decent price, not super bargain, but again I just don't seem exited by it (maybe because it's not mine) but think I could be. Kuota Kharma (Ultegra) - a contender, not in stock in my size and I haven't tested it. Kuota Kebel - as Kharma. Orbea Onix - test ride booked, I feel an urge to hand my credit card to the lbs owner when looking at it - though I suspect the one in stock may be a bit too big. Back to Uni in 2 weeks, then it will soon be winter , If I don't buy it now it'll never happen! But indecision is reigning supreme and there seems to be a shortage of bikes in the 52/54 cm range. god my patience is wearing thin!
