Hello everyone can see this is a great forum - didn't realise it was US-based until I'd already registered but didn't think I'd let that stop me introducing myself anyway.
So, I'm Richard from Essex, UK, love cycling on and off-road, maybe I have the cheapest bike on the forum? here 'tis
Cost me the princely sum of £40 (about $70) from a mail order returns shop, cheap because it's got a few scratches, you can see them on the front forks. Reason I bought a cheap bike? I don't have a lot of luck with them, I bought an expensive one and it was rubbish so this time I bought a cheap one, it's still rubbish but hey it was cheap!!
In this picture it's got my road tyres on it for on-road (I have done the length of Britain Land's End - John O'Groats ride with friends) but I do a lot of off-roading as well and it's usually got mountain bike tyres on it.
