Look! Look what my husband bought me

OK, for the non-cyclists among you who are scratching your heads, it's a bike frame. A very nice, very light, part-carbon, Sarah Ulmer SUB bike frame.

So what do you DO with a bike frame that you bought off eBay? Well, you sort through all the bike bits (gears, brakes, wheels, you name it) that you have stored in the garage, and with any luck you have all the right parts to build an entire road bike. Which he does....almost. We need a front fork and one or two other odds and ends, but he'll track those down.

So the finished product should look a bit like this:

It'll take him a while to get the final pieces and then put it all together and adjust it so it's just right, but I can wait. In fact, I'm quite happy to wait till winter is long gone....cycling in the freezing cold and howling wind really doesn't appeal. Gee, I bet that's a surprise.

Oooh - how exciting - just like xmas!

Hope hubby is ok!

You are well and truly rocking with focus at the moment, aren't you.

I so hate the cold. I spent most of the day in my new Peter Alexander PJ's, ugg boots with the heater on and electric blanket when I went for my arvo nap. I'm going to hate Melbourne weather in a couple of weeks!

LOL - Shelley, do you have a ski jacket? If so, you better bring it. If not...uh, maybe hire one?

Layers are the answer, plenty of light layers. And a coat for when you have to brave the outdoors. Works for me.

Oooohhhh PRETTY! Great new bike Kek!! Congrats.

You read my mind, I was going to ask you for a photo.

That'll make the road riding so much easier for you.

Kerryn, I love the SUB. Would be the next bike of choice for me if I could get hubby to Ok it.

Sounds like Bike Boy is a Very Clever Person.
Did you have to run and hide while he swore at it the whole time, or maybe that sort of thing only happens at my house.
