    Are you growing bikes now?

    Or are elves building them for you, after you leave out milk and cookies?

    So that explains where my bike went.

    You may be recalibrating the N+1 rule. How many does this make in the last year.

    So, who owned that shed? And do they live close enough to you to see you riding on their bike?

    Once you have two, if you let them overnight in the same room, it just seems to happen. How do you think that hybrid bikes came to be?

    We don't seem to be getting any "conclusion" here.

    Inquiring minds want to know - where did that new bike come from???

    Fess time. It's not mine. It is for me to check over to make certain everything is set up properly. Mind you- 20 miles up on the hills on Sunday should sort it out.

    It is a Giant Trance 3. Bit low spec for me- even though I am not doing much mountain biking right now. Tora suspension forks and a Fox rear suspension unit. The wheels are a complete let down so I can see that my spare pair of XT hubs and Mavic 717 rims will be out on this bike before long. Tyres are Not too wide at 2.0 but that is what I use on the Tandem so probably too wide for a solo. Deore Drivetrain but with an LX rear mech and crankset is truvatif and 44/32/22 coupled to 9 speed 11/34 Sram cassette. Couple of nice bits on it, like the bars and stem but Overall not a bike I would enjoy riding. Will get it out on Sunday with the New Owner but reckon that the Bianchi hardtail will be able to show its metal up against these new fangled Double ended POGO sticks.



    (Can you tell that I am not impressed)

    Thanks for the follow-up.

    As long as the owner doesn't read this Forum, he should like his new bike!
