It's red, shiny and brand new!

It's here!

Jake's new bike, his early birthday present, is here.  It's fantastic, bright red, 16 gears, standard size wheels, narrow road tyres - beautiful.
Ah ha!  A box......

Grandpa helps reveal the prize! 
Just look at this..

It really must go in the house, can't have it out in the cold - just yet!
So, as you can see it arrived with things still needing to be done.  It was not a 'ready-to-wear' bike.

Patience was required until the following evening, after school, when the team took Jake and Jake's new, gleaming machine to make sure everything was properly set up for a comfortable riding experience.

On the turbo trainer for bike fitting.
After lots of measurements, pedals fitted, saddle fitted and a little saddle height adjustment Jake was onto the turbo trainer to get a feel of the bike and flick through those extra gears.  A final post-exercise stretching session and all that's left is to get out on the road.
