New bike day!

So here’s my new Tifosi Ck2 Corsa. Can’t quite believe it. My face aches from grinning.


Pedals are lent from @spandelles (though I quite like them and am angling to keep them). Bottle cages also temporary as I forgot to order any.

Went out for tiny spin (not far due to head cold). Initial impressions:

  1. Wheeeeeee!
  2. Hooray!
  3. Golly! These brakes actually STOP you!
  4. Aargh! Need to practise getting in and out of these pedals

Here I am, looking just a tiny bit chuffed with my new ride.



(Eagle-eyed readers will note that these pictures also feature New Shoes and New Jersey, which arrived, perfectly timed, on #NewBikeDay.)

Thanks as always to @spandelles for expert bike fettling, picture-taking and general encouragement.
