    A dry chain can be quite expensive.

    I don't know, I think he should take it back. He didn't ask us all sorts of questions as to what type of bike and which material and what brand he should buy and many others that come to mind. Now go and ride the wheels off.

    Well she's only got herself to blame she started this cycling habit off.
    We where out for a sunday stroll and all these people where passing us on bikes. she said we should give that a go.
    Next week walking through shopping centre passed a bike shop and she said lets go in and have a look.
    Walked out 30min later with his and hers bikes. lol

    Did something like that about 6 mo. ago. Went to the LBS for something I can't remember and bought my first Cyclocross bike....a Raleigh RX 1.0. Have to say I absolutely love this bike.

    Every time I walk into my LBS I plan on doing just that. But then reason gets the best of me and I walk out with only the real stuff I needed.

    Nice looking bike. My wife started my addiction, as well, by getting me a bike for my birthday. She is also into cycling, so she really doesn't complain about what I spend on it since she spends her fair share as well. I took my Giant Defy 2 in to the LBS for a Retul adjustment fitting and ended up with a Colnago, so I know the temptation involved in getting an N+1. Enjoy it and ride it till it falls apart.

    Bill,

    I never walk into an LBS with enough money to do anything other than what I came there to do.

    Nice bike but the garden could use some attention.

    Best wishes for great spring and summer riding.

    Congratulations.

    There are advantages to being 6'6". I can go into the bike shop without fear of finding something I can't resist on the rack.

    Will take some better Pics
    Went for a 30k ride yesterday arvo.
    Was very windy usually would suffer pretty bad on the hybrid.
    This bike made so much easier.
    Thinking the whole time while riding, why haven't I got one of these sooner....
    First thing i did when i got back was get rid of the it seat was terrible.

    I have the same problem. I'm only 6'4" but the small town LBS I have doesn't keep anything over 58cm in stock It's probably saved me a fortune

    Take your time on the saddle issue. When I first bought a road bike I kept swapping saddles 'cause my butt was killing me and my buddy kept saying" How many miles do you have?" and I would tell him 300 or 400 or whatever it was and he would say "it's not the saddle it's your butt, keep pedaling" Sure enough after about 1500 miles my butt quit hurting
