and i cannot wait
it will be a 2013 specialized tarmac (the cheapest one).
have wanted a road bike since the mid 80's (i blame greg lemond/those freewheel catalogues with lovely rossin/peugeot bikes in them).
i did have a raleigh elan in the early 90's that i liked a lot,but the front end got bent,when a van pulled out of a roundabout as i had right of way
anyways,am really looking forward to finally getting a road bike (will be upgrading stuff on it as funds allow).
there's loads of country lanes e.t.c that i have never ridden (as i ride mountain bikes usually).
will post some videos when i pick up the bike (i have a route planned to break it in/including some hills to test my lack of fitness (the ones at lacock/pewsey vale)live in devizes wilts.
am not shaving my legs though
