Introductions - Hi, I'm new here
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

I just signed up as a new user. My main interest is in bicycle touring, mainly by mountainbike to strange places in the world...
Apart from that I occasionally join mountainbike marathon races, not to win, but more to have fun. And then there's long-distance road racing - who will join for next year's Paris-Brest-Paris?
I joined this forum to be able to exchange experiences also with the english-speaking community - I am also an active member of a German bike touring forum.
Anyway, that's it.
Welcome to the forums. Good to have you here.

I'm sure you will find you have lots in common with many people using this forum. Glad to have you on.

Umm.....since the Paris-Brest-Paris is a radonne, I think that you will be at quite a disadvantage on a mountain bike against all those Audax bikes. I even doubt that they would allow you to race the event with anything else. Where are you planning on qualifying? If you choose the qualifacation race in California, I'd be interested to see how you do.

maybe it didn't become clear that I'm the proud owner of several bikes - four to be precise.
And one of them is a road racing bike which I'll use for the qualifications and PBP. It served well last time. As far as I know the regulations do not exclude mountainbikes as such, apart from the fact that if I were to use a mountainbike I would use different tires, and most probably also mount a larger front chainring, as I had done for Trondheim-Oslo (550km) before I had the road bike...
