So. The day has finally arrived, a world leading bicycle brand has added disc brakes to it’s top of the line frameset. Not only does this particular frame have a down right gorgeous paint job, as always the spec of the frameset is up there with the best of them. What do I need to do to get my hands on one of these bad boys?

I have just seen the paper that SCambs has on the proposed Bourn development. To say it is large is putting it mildly. I think I need to digest it some more, but it does look horrific for the local area.
A guy that builds custom bike frames, built an extra special bike with an extra special front chainring. Bike with a big-ass chainring… He got it up over 100mph on rollers. Thats not slow. Damn.
