New bike

I collected my new Avanti Explorer 3 yesterday afternoon, and soon had the panniers and other gear fitted. It's no faster than my old Blade, but it has a more relaxed riding position to help my neck and shoulders, wider tyres for munted Christchurch roads and riding on shingle, and front shocks. It also has hydraulic disk brakes and top line Shimano 27-speed gears. I have to modify my mirror to fit into the smaller diameter handlebars, otherwise it's all go.
