Been lurking around here for a while, just signed up though so be gentle!
Just finished building my new bike after a year of collecting parts while on offer and searching for bargains.
Had its first outing at Swinley yesterday, blue and red, and I love it! I still
need want new bars, stem, seatpost, pedals and brakes, currently this kit is from my old bike, but will have to wait for a bit.
