    I am getting bike withdrawl.

    Had a great 20 mile commute today and after a 14 hour shift ( dam those pesky late jobs) I rode home again.

    I was giving the last 4 miles the full beans - no other reason that cos I wanted to and I got overtaken by the sexiest bike I have ever seen. The bloke stopped at lights and we had a chat... he was a nice bloke and didn't laugh at my £800 bike ( which I thought he might) and gave me a little go. ( I couldn't have cycled off cos my legs were knackered and he had some mates with him). It was like riding a piece of silk. I honestly couldn't believe what it rode like... and it was too small for me.

    It made me gasp....... now do I need to see someone or do you/we all fall in love with machinery ?

    I want one. I want to sell my house and everything that's in it for this bike. I need to have it. It's made for me.

    This is it...


    I've gone all wibbley......

    I AM IN LOVE [:)][:)][:)]

    It's all relative. An £800 bike is very sexy to me on my £200 Giant OCR3!

    Mate. Your bike and mine are probably more similar than you imagine.

    Slightly different components. I can assure you that the time advantage between our bikes woulod be minimal if you or me were to test them under strict and equal conditions.

    That Cube on the other hand is way way way way out there. It's like comparing a ford focus and a VW golf and then a Pagani Zonda coming along to play. Not comparable.

    I want to get married again.............

    Clarly - yep - just pootling along really... think he'd been out and done some mileage so was taking it easy on way home.

    Luckily the roads around my way can be super smooth.

    All his mates were on top bikes too so maybe a posh lad with oodles of cash but he looked pretty fit to me.

    I have been day dreaming about it all day. How sad is that [X(]

    SORTED! Phew... It wasn't because I just hadn't clicked on 'Apply' honest. It's gremlins or something.

    That is a gorgeous bike... absolutely stunning.

    I'm curious though, what is with the wheels? Why do they want MACH1's on a 7k bike when you'd almost always be faster disk/3 spoke or a zipp 1080? Or am I completely wrong?
