Picked up a couple of new bikes this year. One was a warranty replacement from KHS, I originally had a KHS Flite 250 (2003 mod). I broke the frame a week before Xmas and KHS promptly replaced it with a new (2005) Flite 700. A much better bike in regards to frame than my original.
Secondly (the wife) took pity on me not having a bike for a few weeks because of above, and let me buy a new Giant CRX 3 which I am building into a light touring bike.
Would put in some pictures, but don't know how.
Nice, You need to buy that wife a box of choclates!
