Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you...

...my new ride.


I finally found one in my size without having to wait until January. It's the best value for money I could find. The only things I've changed is the foam grips to Serfas ones and added BBB bar ends. The shop is throwing in a cage and bottle for "free". Will change it later for a Specialized Ribcage one.

Mooi fiets .... baie geluk net jammer dit is 'n halwe fiets (soos mdk ook gese het) 'n damn sight beter as 'n Giant.


Ek het nou net vir die tandem die nuwe LX Shifters, voor an agter derraileur opgesit...... baie smart en die shifting is incredibly crisp en vinnig. Wag nog vir die hydraulic pyp vir die agterste disks. Die Hope Mono M4 disks is regtig baie mooi gemaak. Nogal "bling" omdat dit 'n vier pot disk is. Selfde as Porsche, Mercedes en Ferrari!!!!!!!

Nikki, I got it from Westdene for R5800, excluding the new grips and bar ends. They only had the one 19" and are not sure when they will be getting more in this size. I think they still have a few 17" left. I could have gotten it for R5500 from Cajees but only in Jan and with their service level I would rather pay more.
