Took the Pina for a spin at lunch. In a quiet road I see a guy in shirt and tie looking at the bike as I approach. As I'm almost level my phone in my jersey pocket rings, it has the itv TdF theme ringtone. The guy stops and stares, mouth open, as if I'm playing this as motivation lol.

Certainly amused me anyway.

It has been available on the ITV website in previous years. However, if it isn't on there now then Google is your friend. Try "itv tour de france theme mp3" or have a look for. The tv theme tune websites

I have the itv one that my daughter downloaded from a site she uses and then sent to me via Bluetooth.

I also have the classic 80's from C4 that Keith posted the link for.

Meant to say. Spoke to Cycle Surgery at Chertsey and went in and they have no MARIN rod bikes in stock and only get them to order. They don't even have any demo bikes. Cycle Surgery are supposed to be a Premier dealership  2

Found out that Action bikes carry some stock and have a 56cm at their Sheen branch so trying to get over there apart from that it's a bit of a dead end at the moment and all ATB do is refer you to the dealership finder facility on the Marin web site.

Will do. When I finally get it there'll be pictures in 'Readers Rides' thread.  4

Having similar issues with the TdF theme too. Everywhere on t'internet seems to have it but when I try to download it my Anti-Virus goes into overdrive.

I had it on an old Nokia phone which could still be knocking around somewhere I do some part-time work so I'll have to see if I can find it.

If you haven't already got the ringtone I downloaded via Zedge which is an Android app.

Cheers Marauder. I've got an Android Samsung so I'll try there.
