Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Simon,

I got my new bike in the mail a couple weeks ago. And I am quite sure that I held some resource usage record for the FedEx tracking server! Keep checkin' 'til she moves!

Will take some shots tomorrow but the Ccanyon website is excellent.. Ordered on the Monday form the Uk and shipped over to arrive from Germany by Friday.

Ps Its still inside as the weather is terrible. That first ride has to be just right.

The Cadel Evans bike is a canyon but the frame those guys use is the slx model.. slightly tweaks in the frame layering I believe.. Check the canyon web****e out, as they have lots of videos on there with Cadel and the S lotto team. www.canyon.com

All the best
