    ... that cycling is becoming a big thing in my life now :biggrin:

    You have got me! I bought my first copy of cycling weekly today! :wacko: And think it might become a semi-regular thing.

    Got my new bike this xmas and am now on the internet for last few hours looking at bike sites.

    Does it ever stop?! :tongue:

    I thought I could handle it too.
    Steel, 531, aluminium (my Alan frame), 531 ST, Dynatech Ti, aluminium again and now I'm on to carbon.
    And every time I try and get out they drag me back in.
    I'm doomed , I tell you. Doomed.
    And Mont Ventoux awaits.

    I bought cycling weekly this week for the first time for ages. Usually just flick through it in Asda as there's never much in it.

    I dont buy cycling weekly, i just read it in the papershop when i wait for the papers. I always had the thinking that i could save the money for something for my bike, or for a new bike.
    C+ is mean because they put it in a wrapper so i have to buy that one if i wont to read something.
    I cant wait till the exams are over so i can ride my bike in the day for however long i want because i have no more school. :tongue: Still dreaming of the day.

    Kovu, take note. The word 'want' goes to 'Need' when you find out your the only one with just a single bike

    My feelings about Cycling Weekly are pretty well documented, but I shall say it again. Cycling Weekly reads like a Parish Newsletter and shouldn't be read by anyone, let alone someone who is paying for it. It's very amateurish.
    I prefer Cycle, the CTC magazine (which is surprisingly well-produced). Haven't bought C+ since last year.

    Kovu, abandon hope now. About 5 years ago Mrs G and I were talked into spending about £300 each on an MTBin the LBS, rather than the £120 we planned on spending in Halfords. We were told, 'some people come back and spend £1000 on their next bike' 'We won't do that, £300 is a lot. We now have about £14,000 of bikes in the garage, and about to get 2 more, and God knows how much has been spent on clothing and accessories. It's not made easier that Mrs G likes cycling as much as me - yes she lets me spend the money, but she wants the same for her, so doubles the cost...
