Got down to the bike shop late afternoon after a 12 hr shift down in Birmingham. Paid up, sorted the docs out, jumped on the bike and rode off. They forewarned me that there was little fuel in it so headed straight to the petrol station. It felt shite so after filling up I checked the tire pressures. Needed another 12 in the front and 4 in the rear. That's all it needed to feel right enough. After that I began to enjoy it more and more and to be honest, didn't find it any more uncomfortable than the 848 it replaced. I think as soon as I get some new tires on and a few other bits that need sorting out, I'll have myself a mint bike!
