Hewitt's is in Leyland, about 18 miles from work on the other side of Preston. I had a voice conference that didn't finish til 5:15, Hewitt's closes at 6. It was touch and go whether we would get there on time. How come when you are in a hurry you always get stuck behind stuff, learners, tractors etc. Anyway we got there with 5 mins to spare.
My new bike is beautiful!
It is a Hewitt Chiltern audax bike. The frame is steel, 631 main frame, 525 rear triangle and forks.
Brooks B17 saddle
Tiagra groupset, except for 105 hubs, long reach brakes and Mavic Open Pro rims.
After a bit of wondering about how best to get it home, I changed into my cycling gear and set of to ride the 13 or so miles home. The bike is great. It fits me really well, the gears shift flawlessly although as this is the first bike I've had with STI gear shifters, it will take a bit of getting used to.
