This may be a record - i joined this forum at lunchtime and got my wheels stolen about 30 mins ago - so i was a valid forum member for about 6 hours!!
Anyway - mustn't dwell on it too much. I am touring Japan at the end of March and now need a new bike! Budget is around £300 for a second hand one. I had a 2006 Kona Dr Drew which i paid about £300 for second hand. I would dearly love the same bike but i suspect this may not be possible unless i buy new which will cost about £800. The Dew may not have been the best bike anyway so i'm open to suggestions. I will buy new if i have to as i'm not gonna let some hoody in Islington ruin my trip!! HELP!!!!!
