    Hehe that's the point, you might not recognise me these days, I've dropped a few kegs since getting on the pushy.

You should probably keep an eye out for when they are on special and stock up!

    I've heard that too about brake pads, the self preservation reflex with me is strong so I probably wouldn't be game enough to get enough speed to wear out a set of pads in a day.

    Here's hoping it does the job, only time will tell.

    Haha, about 30kms/ltr of water on the local bike path, it's the consumption when off the bike that can be a problem.

    It's doing alright Rich, getting a few miles on it, thus far it hasn't missed a beat.

    Here's a pic of it on it's last outing, I didn't intend on this being a bike photo, it was a test of the HDR mode in my new phone, the left hand side is direct sunlight, and to the right is the bike.

    Cheers Dave
