It’s 07:30 and a Parcel Force van pulls up outside, I run to the door, I know what I’m expecting and I’m eager to get the box inside:
I let out a super childlike cackle, of course, I know what is inside and what more could a cyclist be excited about.
I’m limited on time, so I take the box upstairs to be opened in the evening, this was more difficult than you can imagine.
So the evening comes, again I’m limited on time, so I open the box:
I take a quick peek beneath the padding, I’m really looking forward to re-building my bike around this frame, but I have to put it back in the box until the weekend.
The frame is a Thorn Raven Sport Tour with Orbit XL II Headset and real Thorn forks, so it’s an upgrade over my battered old Thorn Raven Tour frame with forks of unknown origin! Whilst thinking about it, I will try and remember to add some posts about Thunder (the Raven Tour) when I have more time.
