    They might be but not sure and not sure how much I'd trust them if they were to be repaired. So bought a new frame and fork came yest built it up yest and today just got to tweak the gears for a practise ride Sunday then one Tuesday need to get a couple in so I can get a feel for it and check if any thing needs changing before the 60 mile ride on the 17th not many miles but over 4000ft hill climb ;-) will get a pic up tomorrow.

    Well did the ride did it with a few guy which are all my pace or quicker one does triathlons so is very fit I didn't gave a problem keeping up with them apart from the hills they all weight in a good few stone lighter then me one of them is 5 stone lighter. So they shot up the hills and left me behind but once we got to the down they had no chance keeping with me so overall really enjoyed the the bikes awesome to ride to.

    not only that but I made the promotion picture that is emailed to every one who did the ride 1000 odd people :-) few pics for you. Next ride is in the 20th another 4000ft climb and 83miles will be my longest ride yet.im in the grey.

    Little up date I had a event today. The longest I've ever riden 83miles in total. I did not get as much riding in between the last event and today's event prob only 3 rides. But none the less started a font well at 8am and completed the ride in 5hours 19mins ride time. Petty happy with that was hard in the middle but had a second wind at 60miles and the last bit was no problem. France is now only 3 weeks away :-) can't wait.
