|THE TWO RIDGEBACKS|
Thursday, 4 November 2010
Then there was the problem of having to grind those Giants up every hill while the rest of us managed the terrain with a bit more ease-we were on traditional style touring bikes. JD and I were in fact riding quite extensively modified Revolution Country Travellers that seemed to just fly up every hill that we pointed them at. The Giants weigh almost half as much again when compared to the tourers and being dropped on every hill gets to anyone in the end.
Well the upshot of all this is that Chris and Mike have just taken delivery of two Ridgeback Panarama touring bikes. They picked them up from their LBS yesterday. Mike was so excited that this morning he sent me the above picture - almost like being a new proud parent...!
The only thing missing from the bikes are the BROOKS saddles but Mike assures me he will transfer his over by the weekend.
So now they are both properly sorted for next years tour to Britanny.
