    Hey guys,

    Picked up my new road bike, a Kuota Kharma. Full carbon frame, Shimano 105 running gear and Fulcrum racings wheels. Absolutely flies! The RRP is £1200, but I picked it up second hand from a guy who had only done around 20 miles on it. - £600!!!!!!! Bargain of the century!

    I haven't taken a picture of it yet, so here's the official shot:

  4. That's quite a bargain. Not seen one of those before, but it seems to have a good spec. Hope you have many happy and exhilirating miles.

    Hi kieth, yeah mine has exactly the same colour scheme as the bike in the pic.
    It's a great bike to ride and i've noticed the difference of a lighter bike on the hills. - Good news considering i'm doing a 100 mile sportive in North Cornwall soon!

    As long as the conditions are a bit better than last year! That's a point actually, suppose i'd better enter for this year's exodus...
