    Is this over priced or a decent deal?

    Done & done. All mine. Can't wait to ride home now :)

    The frame has been really well kept as well, detailing in the frame is beautiful.

    Wooo!

    Fair deal, I think.
    Frame and parts seem to be in good condition.

    Is the Walker family still in bike business ?

    Thanks mate.

    Think I'll go take a look at it today :)

    I think that's a good deal, not the greatest groupset going but it's a good, solid, reliable bike for £400.

    Thanks mate... and yeah, the groupset doesn't overly excite me either.

    Twice i've been stopped by police for jumping a red, and twice they were just cautions. They gave me some piece of paper to read ... some sort of police/cycling initiative thing.

    The first time the copper said 'if we catch you again, you'll be fined'. Amusing because;

    1. They didn't take my details
    2. I was caught again and I wasn't fined :)

    They were nice about it on both occasions though, even after I explained I felt safer jumping a red light as opposed to waiting for the green.

    I too cycle over Putney Bridge, twice a day, and so does my girlfriend. In the evening we usually trade stories of that bloody bridge and close calls. It's particularly ordinary heading south off the bridge onto the high street with cars failing to indicate that they're about to merge.

    I got to the bridge at about 6.10pm on Friday and yes, everything had just been taped off and there was a helicopter in the air above. I was hoping it wasn't a cyclist.

    This thread just brings home how dangerous it can be (not that we need reminding I suppose). I'll pay my respects as I cycle over the bridge late this afternoon.

    Be safe.

    Glad you are finding it an interesting/funny read. I just showed my girlfriend, a regular commuter, and she couldn't stop laughing.
