Hi John. Thanks for the welcome. I'm actually from the Stafford area so I don't have any airport problems. My commute is pretty good except for Kedron Brook road where they have the bicycle door-ing lanes :(

John what can I say my LBS stocks Giants and they are affordable. I did forget to mention the tandem and tagalong. I'd like a foldable bike for travel though. I was looking at a non-giant second hand Ritchey breakaway but decided I didn't really need a travel bike that much.

Hi John,
Still looking for work! I'll have to start making a real effort soon.
See you out on the bike, or at a cafe :)
Cheers, Justin

Hi John
I do own a felt hat (i've had it for years) but I lost the felt pen quite a few years ago.
Thanks for the compliment on the bike. Yes it is an excellent bike and also my first full carbon ride. It is nearly 12 months old and I enjoy every moment I spend on it. Cheers.
