I’d put this bike in  the top 3 of bikes I’ve owned tbh. Real power in a world of rubbish roads. Nothing I can say about this machine that other forum participants haven’t said so far ..... I’m just off out on it now ....ttfn

Thank you

I’m finding the quick shifter very addictive ..... especially changing down the box

As I have the mechanical ability of a love island participant I’ll probably be asking plenty of ridiculous questions .... standby with the redicule chaps  :008:

There's NO such thing as a silly question... the only silly question, is the one that isn't asked!
