Firstly I should apologise for not blogging anything for weeks.
My enforced lay off has creeped over a fortnight.
Bikes are wonderful things aren't they.
They take you places, make you new friends and empty your bank acount.
A couple of bikes have come to my attention this week.
The first one is an old acquaintance, the second a new friend.
So first up is the new Trek TT machine, it's soo new it's yet to be painted up in Radioshack livery, heck it only mentions Trek a couple of times on the frame. It's that new! Actually it's not. If you're not familier with Simon's Extreme Commuter from a few years ago allow me to introduce you. And yes, it was/is rideable.
Now occassionally, i check all the visits, IP addresses and where everyone is coming from. Every now and again, VeloCake is visited by several folks from the Greater Brighton and Hove area. What if it is a certain sheep drawing bicicletta polizia di modo should clap eyes on it. Wouldn't that be great.
Saving the best till last, there was the patter of tiny wheels around our house as we welcomed a brand new turquoise Yeti. Ted, as he has now been named (although he was "Not Bob" for ages, thanks Grant) was pretty much finished off last weekend after borrowing a few bits and bobs from various places (thanks Jumbly) and our local LBS, the Cycle Centre, he was taken out for his first ride yesterday. Theres a full report on not Bob's outing and a very excited Katie's reactions here: new yeti
Finally for a little balance and Alan, a cake. Note the posh china.
