I am a happy bunny today. I bought a new mountain bike and it is simply perfect. Most Taiwanese frames have 16.7 million colour painting, but this one is matt black with silver line art Giant logos (the manufacturer). It is a great frame (worthy of a £1500 bike) but with middlish components that I will upgrade when I need / want to. And I got the whole lot, plus accessories and helmet for £500. Very happy indeed.
I’ll stop being geeky now
