Have bought new bike, or rather Richard has bought me one. Ridgeback Comet, 19" ladies frame. Added mudguards, rack, stand and lock for just over 300 quid total. Have note of frame number and will be getting it postcoded ASAP and seeing how much extra it costs on the household insurance to insure it away from the house.

The daft low gear is hilarious. Tried it in the lowest gear and it felt like pedalling with the chain off! Anyway, it is nice.

I have only one problem though. Lights. Here is a copy of a post I have just made to a few local newsgroups, perhaps someone here can help?
