    Hi all, new owner from Leicestershire

    I got my white 2016 plate Crossrunner a few weeks ago and I'm very pleased with it too. The bike came with a fair few extras fitted from new and is in excellent nick at only 8,000 mls. No pics yet but I'm sure most of already know what one of these looks like.

    I'll be looking in for info on servicing etc as I like to do my own where possible and also info on adding extras. Although so far I can't think of much I want to do to it-it's that good-even my wife likes it!

    The only things I can currently think of adding are a chain oiler and a switched connector for my heated gloves.

    Ja, dit begrijp ik. I just got the wrong end of the pronunciation. For decades I've been saying it wrong! I loved Dutch pronunciation as it reminded me a lot of Welsh, which I also wish I'd learnt! I used to know a girl called Geertruud Van Peperstraaten. I loved her just for her name  :002:
