I’ve been messaging to and fro with Tabitha for over a month now, she’s been after a bike and I’ve been more than happy to help her find the right one.
Tab was my first boss. She signed me up for an internship when I was still at uni and gave me a job in her design studio when I graduated. I owe her lots, she’s awesome.
So Grant at MC Cyclery decided to slash the prices off a few remaining 09 bikes and there was one particular bike in the bunch that was killer. Tab met me at MCC today and although she understood the bike was great value she just hated the way it looked. I say fair call, it explains why I’ve painted a fair few frames now to rid them of their ugly sport shoe style graphics!
So she went for a Giant Alias instead, which was the same price as the slashed 09 bike, but with a level down in componentry. Whilst the boys were tuning the bike up we headed across the road for lunch at the recently opened Sushi Train (same franchise as the Bondi Junction one Suga and I haunt).
