Well, I got sick of waiting for the Pinarello, so I have decided to go for something else. The importers STILL couldn't guarantee an arrival day (could have been Tuesday next week, could have been the week after - who knows). So after waiting the best part of seven weeks, I had a killer offer and really couldn't turn it down.

Top end Condor carbon frame in nude - only one in the world.
Full Record incl seatpost :blush:
Fulcrum 1s
Ritchey carbon bars
Look Keo Carbon
Michelin ProRace 2

All for not significantly more than I was going to pay for the FP5. Kinda embarrassed about how trick it is and how crap I am, but she's a beauty. Needs a fit and I suspect a shorter stem, but I'm stoked. Pics and weight soon...it's VERY light!

Sounds like pics might have to go on the porn thread. Speaking of which - Oi Tugboat, I'm having withdrawal symptoms! Please post something to get us grubby roadies through the weekend!!

Rode out to Pencarrow heads lighthouse.

The new bike absolutly flew on the gravel roads. Always wanted to head out there but a mtb would be to much of a drag. Continued on past the lighthouse but the wind got the better of me almost blowing me off the bike at a couple of stages.

The wind picked up on the way back making the ride from pencarrow to petone an absolue killer. At times the wind almost brought me to a standstill, bloody horrible.

Had to stop for a pie as about to die then continued on home.

Heres some pics :)

Edit: This was meant to be in where did you ride today, my mistake.
