I’ve still got the orange boardman, I was going to swap it for the cannondale that Mikey has acquired but decided to stick with the boardman for now. Mines needs serviced again, Mikey’s was just done by Broomwagon under the cycle repair scheme Quite Good

I probably need to get mine out for a service, I wouldn’t mind doing it myself but it’s hard in the flat with no space. Have to do my maintenance in the stair and the floor outside my bit is all oil stains Eek

I’ll have a look at his website Sound

Nice bike Mikey. I agree with Morph you should look at drop bars if you're doing decent distance.

All the lycra will be the next step. Seen it all before jjay

Can't help it Terry but I imagine that bike covered in kebab juice, with wee bits of shredded cabbage in what few crevices there appear to be.

Hope the new you works out, specially with the burds. Monty Oh You

Ha, nah, as you can probably also imagine, it's not had much use, so someone will be getting a cracking deal at a huner notes.

No I'm sure, it certainly seems a right bargain. Of course you'd be better off posting it on ebay/gumtree/go daddy whatever the besty platform is (shrugs shoulders!) but I'm sure the fam appreciates you giving them first dibs!  However, as you cansee from this thread most of da posters are well into their lycra, alas.
