I Got Rhythm... 

My beloved trailstar was nicked from outside work about 4 weeks ago and I have now given up hope of ever seeing her again. Luckily I had the bike insured as a special item on my house contents insurance so I was able to get a replacement, the Rhythm.

Two weeks later I took delivery of the Rhythm with the standard Dirt Jam fork swapped out for a DJ3 and a set of Hopes up front. I've only been out on it a couple of times but it feels like a real hibryd of my Trailstar and my BMX (which i guess it is!).

I'll whack a review up as soon as I've given it a good run in.

PS. Once my claim was processed I was forwarded to a company called Wheelies Direct. Previous atempts to claim on insurance have always been very frustrating so imagine my amazement when not only were the guys at Wheelies really cool, they also knew their stuff and were able to get hold of almost anything for me and had a real 'you've got X to spend, what do you want?' attitude. If you insure your bike in the UK make sure they use these guys!
