    Hello from Derby UK

    Hi all.
    Having tried to register I was reminded that the username already existed. So I tried the password and viola! I remember now, I joined a while ago when I nearly bought a Mk1 CR. I've had several bikes since 😏 but have finally made the right choice this time 😁. I did try a Mk2 before but the seat on the one I looked at was at it's highest setting and the dealer refused to alter it. With the high gloss showroom tiles I had zero confidence and walked away. Found an excellent deal this time though and the seat was already set at 815mm so I had another sit and I'm fine. Not quite flat footed but very nearly. This one is a 2019 model with most of the usual farkle already on it. I'm getting the new bike delivered by van when they've had time to put it through the workshop (probably about a week). Looking forward to it very much. Glad to be reacquainted with the CR forum 👍

    It'll be well worth waiting for. Unfortunately the foreseeable weather forecast is for rain - how unusual. That is for Devon however. Perhaps it may be a lot drier in Derby.

    Update.
    CR arriving next Wed (18th). I've not been this excited about a bike for quite some time.  :046:

    Gives me time to widen the shed door.  :038:
