Nice. I mean the bike, not the whole idea of men shaving their legs :blink:
Its a slippery slope...I too am now starting to find myself perusing certain "specialist" websites for roadbikes (Spesh Allez, Giant Defy....or, very tempting, A Genesis DayOne Alfine...), should I be afraid?

If I lived closer to work, I'd definitely be looking at something like an on-one pompetamine.
I borrowed DLTs road bike for a test commute to the office, and really enjoyed it - 25 miles each way is a bit much to do every day, though. (Unless your name is Robin)
I heard that Lisa had offered you a full body wax (or was that just an incentive to get you to mow the lawn?)

Sooo...you had a saddle and seatpost...sounds like a good reason for a new bike!.....
Looks really good Rick,when am I going to see it in action?
Robin..(looking at carbon road frames now..On-One Fluro maybe?)

Now turns out that Rick started with the bottle cage(and pump) and looked around for a bike to match....

Should I build a bike to use this 700c inner tube I have spare?
Nice bike Rick... I like the colour-coordinated frame, wheels and tyres! I keep looking at Ribble for a new bike to commute on this year.

Of course you should Mark:) I can lend you some spare 700c inners.
Very nice bike indeed. Ribble make some very nice looking frames.
