saffy - I have been to TFN a couple of times - the guys in there are great are very helpful. They do price match to the internet too - so maybe look at the kind of prices wiggle offer on the bikes that TFN do and ask them to price match - they did it when I got a wetsuit no problem. It is not far from the sainsbury's carpark

I'd be interested to hear what you end up with - I'm in a similar situation - I need to be able to get round 40k by next July, in one piece, without creating a major obstacle to others. I'm about the same height and I was also about to visit Evans.

Well I went to TFN and they were lovely 

Made me a coffee whilst they told me about basic bike stuff to reduce my numptiness and set up a turbo so I could have a pedal in the shop. Then I popped down the road and did a few spins round Sainsbury's car park to try out my favourite one.

So..........I HAVE A BIKE       (well I don't actually have it yet....I've paid for it and am collecting it tomorrow with Mr Saffy and the bike rack!)

They knocked me £70 off and also threw in a helmet.

Running Rodent, I ended up going for a Giant Avail, which is a women specific one.

I need a name for my bike....

Ooo nice.    Wondering if I can afford a new bike for next year at the moment - just bought a new (not brand new) car so might have to keep the current one another year.  So when's the forum Derbyshire bike ride then ?

I have an Avail - I lurrrrve my bike!! Had a bike fit this week and live it even more now. Will you put aero bars on?

Ooh I hadn't thought about aero bars. It's my first road bike, so I think I need to get some confidence on it first. Are you getting some?
