60 Sleepless nights ahead :(

hi everyone. i'm a newbie here so i thought i'd say hi and have a whinge about my situation.

i work in an office of a big sydney based bakery and naturally having sampled all of their products i have developed accountants butt. so in order to get fit and have some fun i went out and bought myself a bike to ride to work on and have some fun with on the weekend. trouble is it doesnt come in untill week 49 which is still 2 months away. aaaargh

i bought the 2003 Giant AC2 which is prolly too much a bike for me but i thought what the hay, i might as well do it properly if i'm to do it at all. i'm planning on 5 stitches in the first week, a couple in the second week and if i really try hard enough i'll get that broken arm i'm aiming for by week 3.

the funny thing is, the last few days driving to work i've had my eyes off the road and scoping out possible jumps. i have no idea of good trails or dhills in Sydney so if anyone knows of any plz let me know.

hopefully i'll be able to :sleep: during the next few weeks.

cheers

Congrats on your new bike purchase. I have no doubts that you will really like the Giant AC. I have a '01 AC1 and I feel it's one of the best all around bikes out there. I've used it for XC, dirt jumping, and full-on downhilling and it's been up to the task every time.

Sorry to hear it's going to take so long for you to receive your new bike but It'll be well worth the wait.
