Oh the beautiful Marathon Pluses Rob. 2 years in the glass and gravel laden trenches that Hampshire County Council laughingly calls roads and not a single hisssssss!

Thanks Mike. I do cut the grass regularly, but I was lucky to inherit a garden from the previous residents  who knew what to plant!! In the right border I'm losing a battle with weeds........

That garden is a credit to you Rob, grass cut, edges trimmed, flower beds brimming with vigour; all of which serves to demonstrate my own inadequacy in this area.  But it's no good, I can't muster the enthusiasm for horticulture, it eats into my cycling time.

And the bike looks fine too.  I have a soft spot for the Boardman, having used two for all-weather commuting over the years I know how appealing they are.

I picked up the new bike yesterday.

The pedals have been changed this afternoon - I'm trying out my trusty DMR V8s for now that I took off my Trek 8.3DS and I've ordered some Schwalbe Marathon GT 365 tyres.

I like the personalized Rapid Robs, but want something with a bit more puncture protection and road grip as well as off road grip and the Marathon GT's seem to offer that.

Garage space dictates that I need to get rid of a bike so my Trek is off to pastures new - a long term loan to my dad. 

I get bonus points from the wife for getting rid of a bike while not really getting rid of it!!
