Introductions - Hello from Cape Town, South Africa
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.

Long time lurker first time poster.
I have just got back into cycling after a 7+ year break. I commute a short distance(10 Km) to work and take a longer ride on the weekend. The most challenging thing so far is trying to fit both cycling, golf and extra work into what is becoming a very short weekend.
Thanks to all for some very interesting posts and hope to continue reading (and hopefully posting) for a long time to come.

I ride a road bike Raceline - Performance. Sora components bought when I was working in Australia and shipped back to South Africa when I moved back. I don't think they make Raceline anymore bought out by Apollo bikes I think but I could be mistaken.
My route is a mixture of quiet side streets, busy roads that are not to bad and one short piece of absolute mayhem that scares me everytime I ride on it.

Yah, I'm american but lived in Jo'burg for 5 years. Not the friendliest of places to bike
(except during the 94.7 Highveld challenge).
If Jsharr (another moderator) comes in here don't believe him, there are a few things I won't do
for Biltong, Poitke or a good Braiivleis.
There's an Africa subforum but not much goes on there (i.e. one post every 6 months or so).
One of my Scuba Instructors is now down in Cape area, and I really need to get back to
Oh well, enjoy the forums.
