Stablemate

Postby mkCX » Sun Apr 29, 2018 8:44 pm

Picked up a stablemate for the CX in London yesterday, spent the day riding back to Glasgow. Wasn't much fun in the rain for the first 150 odd miles but worth the trip.

Looks a bit like an overweight pidgeon but it's mega comfy, handles great and has a decent amount of poke. Reckon I'm going to enjoy it - my first four cylinder (v4).

Nice, good luck with it.

Didn't really pay attention, but probably not great as I really pegged it up the road. They're not really known for their economy.
