    It's been just over two weeks since I ordered my bike, waiting time of 3 to 4 weeks. So I picked up the phone,

    "Hello" I say,
    "Hello" says the other end.

    I recognize the voice from the bike shop:

    "Is my bike here" I ask getting all exited.
    "Sorry I've dialled the wrong number" he says.

    My bike's not here yet :biggrin:

    Nice one. I reckon they do it for a laugh!
    What bike have you ordered?

    What is the number of the shop? I will call them up and tell them they have been selected for a CBI small business of the year award of fifty thousand pounds. When I hear the first champagne cork pop I'll apologise for having got the wrong number. :biggrin:

    Lucky barsteward!
    Gotta get me a road bike...I was bloody flying in on my Sirrus this a.m. and was thinking how much faster I'd have been on a road bike.

    No wonder you were excited :biggrin:

    Maz, I was following someone with a Sirrus on the way in this morning - things can bloody shift, can't they? Dropped him once the lane widened enough in order to take on a chap on a beautiful Bianchi[1] - lost him at a set of lights (I got through before they changed, I don't think he did).

    [1](I only wanted to say "Nice bike mate" when the opportunity presented itself...)

    I had a moment of sheer joy A couple of days ago when I zoomed past a chap on a carbon fiber trek on the flats at 25+ on my 300 pound Dawes Giro ALU frame I had to resist the urge to go neooow as I passed

    They certainly can move. I just wish sometimes I was in a more aero/head-down position to go faster.

    I like the paint job, understated class methinks.

    It's a Virgo '64. Cosmetically in excellent condition - Uni class polled between 28 and 32 (actual was 42) :angry: Though some parts are getting a bit worn (knees could do with an oil change).
