    Congratulations - excellent choice. This is probably going to seem like a silly question but what is that tiny black wedge holding your bike up?

    Hehe...a very basic door stopper, but works well to stop the bike falling over or rolling around - especially if the cat decides he wants to make friends with him! Still not been out, weather forecast looking worse rather than better, sniff!!!

    Your bike looks very cool and fast. I have a trek 1000. I LOVE it. Mine is orange and white and most definitely a "girl". I named her Chrissie.

    Thanks for all the nice comments!

    Well, I managed to get him out for a couple of miles between hailstorms, etc. today (and yes, it was literally 2.5 miles ) But hey, here is the proof, slightly fuzzy and for some reason I look rather deformed due to the camera angle, but at least I've been out! Still terrified of braking and can't quite work out where the right gears are, but I suppose it will sink in eventually...

    Deformed??- get out of town- you look GREAT!!!

    Your fingers look cold though.

    It took me a week or two to get the hang of my brifters/shifting when I switched from bar end shifters to new brifters. If my old brain cells can do it, you'll have it down in no time at all!

    Looks wonderful- enjoy!!

    Great photos of you and your bike, both! I'm having a chuckle here because I had my Trek Pilot for a year before I used all of the gears. I was using only the right-side gears, even up hills. Bike shops don't cover shifting when one buys a bike; at least my bike shop didn't. Once I learned I had a granny gear, I was delighted!
