Resist the temptation and give up now, before the 18/21 speeds turn into 27/30, the bikes that rides well now, gets a bit heavy, those hills get a bit too steep, and you have to go cap in hand to the bank manager for a loan on the latest Full suspension, costalot 15lb feather.

Well done for joining us, but be warned, this sport can severely damage your wallet.
