You should get ValleyBoy AKA VB to take you the Abergavenny A40 to Llandovery (good food at the cafe ) then off to 1000 sheep road, don't ask me the name of it but VB can show you. It's a hoot!

Have you taken it anywhere to be looked at yet?

Even if you have, can I suggest you get a second opinon from John at All About Bikes in Bristol. He's also got a few used bikes you might be interested in. Only thing is they don't open at weekends which would mean you taking a 1/2 day off. I finish early on a Friday so could meet you there, take you for a cuppa, and take you back.

Not this Friday though - we're off to Afan for the mountain biking isn't it.
