The delivery van pulled up outside the shop and I felt a surge of anticipation well up inside of me . We looked out as the driver carried a large box towards the door . I wondered if it was big enough to contain two of the worlds most sought after road bike frame-sets .
Ray signed for the box and we got stuck into ripping open the top of the box . I hadn’t been this excited since I was six years old , on Christmas eve , waiting for the guy in the big red coat to deliver a matchbox multi-storey dinky garage ( with a car elevator )
As I unwrapped the frame I was delighted with what I had in my hands . The finish was immaculate . The carbon weaves on display were impressive . The level of detail in the finish right down to the perfectly cleaned dropouts which avoid any paint chipping had every box ticked .
The colour scheme also turned out even better than I had expected and it matches perfectly with our worldwidecycles.com team gear .
I now have the difficult task of building it up . Groupset will be Campagnolo Super Record . Finish kit will be FSA K-Force . But the jury is still out on what wheels to put on my ultimate dream machine . Any suggestions are most welcome .
