In keeping with the theme of changing everything - I now even have a different mode of transport. Last week I got a hardtail. It's the first proper bike I ever had an I love it. My only concern is navigating the traffic in London - I view it as an extreme sport :-) The aim is to become proficient enough to be able to commute to my course this autumn. I can't wait to take it off road as well... trails are hard to come by in London.
