Went to a LBS today to start the search for the next bike to add to the stable. I had to nix the Cannondale due to standover height. The next step is to bring the IRD in to look at geometry and see what might be available for me without going custom. They offer DEAN which has the ability to make a custon frame. No impulse purchases.
In other news:
Ex-Violet Crown junior, Kristian House, has found another team to race for this coming year - Rapha-Condor-Recycling.co.uk. He raced for Navigators last year but is back in his native land of Great Britain. I wish him good luck.
