    Did I mention that my (black) track bike is costing me £0 tax per year ;)

    yeah but surely you get half the year back if you tax for 6 months and sorn for 6 months, so you only saving £44. I cant be arsed with all that for £40 odd quids, plus I might get out in the winter too if dry... do you still pay the full year of insurance?

    I do hope to use it as it's insured all year round, I just never renewed the tax while I was working away.
    Whether I'll actually manage to get out over winter though is a different question :(

    Cube Aim Pro.
    Ive always had mountain bikes & last one a Kona cost me an arm & a leg but its lasted 16 years!!!
    I was thinking of getting one of those hybrid bikes with suspension now I'm getting a bit creaky & older but changed my mind & glad I have :)....what are you riding Simon?

    Hitchhiked down to fetch the new bike & ride it back Simon & WOW.....

    massive difference on the 29ers :D...... (& as every lady will attest to....every inch matters ;) )

    Forgot tho that I'd not swapped me mudguards over & wondered why there was a strange smell of dog pate lingering around me in the cafe half way home....o_O

    Found about half a pound splattered up the back of my biker leggings & rear tyre lol :eek:

    Only cost me half of what the Kona did but well looking forward to throwing it around in a bit of Peak District mud tomorrow :)
