Sunday - spent pleasant hours at Rutland Cycles; felt a bit under the weather but deliberated long and hard before going home with a Madone 3.1.
Monday 4am - A&E
Thursday 5pm - Home minus a burst appendix but 4lbs lighter.
Friday 10.30am signed off for two weeks staring at the bike in my dining room.

Ouch. Look on the bright side though, your first upgrade just shed 4lb off the total weight you need to carry!

Get well soon, the bike will still be there...

Yeah not the best having just got your new bike, another bonus is your 4lbs lighter, give you a couple of extra seconds up a climb  3

Bad luck, get well soon!

I have a 3.1 on order myself, due 12th March, very frustrating, so we may be on the road at the same time!

Be careful with your recovery... my appendix burst in April and I was back in hospital with an infection in October... which didn't clear up so I had to have another operation in November.

Just be aware of the risks because if I was I may have avoided missing load of my first term at uni and having to have another op.

wow a bit of a hard ride, imagine the tagline ' trek so stiff it will snap your appendix' maybe let some air out of the tyres?

My 3.1 arrived yesterday, early, I'm so pleased!

Can't ride it today though gotta take the missus to the seaside!

Enjoy, when you get the chance. Been superb cycling weather here in Cambridgeshire so even more frustrating. Could you squeeze in a ride at the seaside?
