Bike focus for next year? So BOTH training sessions are on two wheels? Going to be awesome, buddy.
I had fun once. It was awful.

I really don't think it's sensible for Bendy to double his training volume

Build delayed
The Doc is busy and I've run out of cash until end of the month. So it's going to be done from the 25th Feb

I did however get two matching bottle - grey and green is exactly that same as the frame paint. Lovely Image

Ooh - very matchy matchy!
It's going to be too pretty to actually ride in the great outdoors, surely? :lol:

How's this for a fuck up

Bike build going well. The Doctor is in charge.

I was a little surprised to hear my genuine 3T bars and Stem..... Are fakes ! WHAT!!!!! Now my brother bought them for me for Xmas and birthday presents and I'm a little reluctant to ring him up and have a moan but I think he's been sold a kipper!!!!

Anyway. I was a little sad that I'd have fizik seat post/ saddle combo and not the same on the front need so the Doc and I have binned the 3T stuff and I've just ordered genuine fizik stuff ( from wiggle) that will be fitted in the next 2 days.

Bike build 95% complete - I dred to think how much this has cost !! :lol:

Sam is away in Poland for 4 days and I've just smashed her credit card again. Standing by for the fallout when she gets back :o

That's a shame. Did he buy from a well known store? Worth asking that because if they are selling fakes others could suffer. Looking forward to seeing the finished pics

To be honest Jibs I have no idea

I'm really surprised

He's away in Japan on business so I've e mailed him - I'm
Now lumbered with fake front end & the cost of new bars / stem

He wouldn't have a clue - he knows nothing about bikes

Bike is home whilst I wait for bars to get delivered - taking up space in the Doctors workshop

Gagging for it to be finished - looks amazing Image
