    Yep! Bikes are my mistresses. Not sure on mudguards on the caad, know it can sqeeze 28mm tyres in there though.

    Ha, judge me not!

    It's gonna be an all round go-to training bike really.

    P.s. I have no financial commitments or family / wife / girlfriend to spend money on, which is a bit tragic really...!

    Am new to this thread so apolz if i have missed anything above...

    Is there any news on the prices for CAAD12s? I want to get myself a good commuter and winter bike, and the CAAD12, maybe with ultegra, seems a really good choice. However, can't really find any info on it.

    I was also thinking of getting the 2015 Supersix Evo Ultegra for about £1700 from evans, which is about £300 saving. That's definitely the top of my budget for this though.

    Any recommendations?
    Am kinda drawn to the CAAD12 due to the choice of disc brakes, but know nothing about them and so it could be a hassle maintenance wise...
    But I do love SuperSixes and the reduction in price seems quite a good deal too. Am thinking the CAAD12s will be pricey initially as they're a new product.

    Price for a Surrey ride
    Stupid early start
    Seemed quite dangerous, a few of my mates got caught up in crashes when everyone went off hell for levva

    Would like to give it a bash though, bet its a great experience

    Don't sack it off completely and beat yourself up about it - get a train half way, ride the rest?

    @6pt, you lucky sod. Could happily have a vegetation session in front of brainless telly. And that's a feckin fast ride ,chapeau. I would reveal my speed data but it's the intellectual property of my team (i.e. , me) and so am not permitted.

    I didn't really hear your abuse. My best abuse was saved for Henry but I think it probably went down like a sack of shite.

    What bike were you riding, couldn't see?

    It can be tough to keep motivation in that cauldron of cat 5 racers, particularly when it's cold. But it was either that or come to work earlier....

    I was thinking after I shouted a load of abuse at you when you were on the pavement that you were looking a little peaky.... sorry dude.
    It was pretty chilly and windy out there i thought, probably did you no favours. It has left me feeling more comatose than usual after an early workout.
    Hope you're ok and recover well for your big trek SW tomorrow. Rest up and get the meds on board.

    @6pt, didn't ever get a chance to stop for a quick chat, sorry. They wuz some big hoops you were spinning on... you would have fitted in well with RPR nicely. Did you set a ridiculous pacea gain today?

    @HoKe.... LAME!
