Well done mate.

Remember now you have joined the elite waves from mountain bikers must be greeted with a sneer in the event you can't avoid catching their eye.

Bloody hell, bargainacious.

I'm hardly even jealous at all. Oh no.

Belting along on those thin little tyres feels great once you're used to it.

Funny thing is, roady bikes are weird ~ you ride these thin tyres then having came from an MTB, go back on the MTB for a ride and you feel like your riding a couch down the road :biggrin:
