Hello from Sydney Aus.

I'm pretty new to all this bike shenanigans.. I rode a BMX as a Teenager and then mostly forgot about them fro the next 10 - 15 years.

But over the last year or so I seem to have become obsessed with Bikes...

It started off innocently enough
- I bought this cheap MTB/Hybrid for $90 because i moved out to the burbs abit more and needed some transport. (May 2006)...

well yesterday I just bid (at Auction) on a 4th bike
- a busted up Apollo Road bike that I intend to turn into a Single Speed Fixed Wheel.
its less than 12 months later....

I'm in Sydney - Inner West and don't know anything much about bikes.

Welcome. I lived in Sydney for 4 years, but I lived on the lower North Shore. I didn't ride bikes when I lived there and I still can't imagine pedalling up the Pacific Hwy (unless I had a death wish).

Do you commute into the city?

Hello lukeC,

Plenty of tidbits of information to pick up here, sometimes it seems as if there is so much going on here as to make it difficult to get out and ride!

You may wish to check out the regional forum:

Ha, the Pacific Highway woudl be a nightmare.

Yeah i've been Commuting each day on bike into the city
- I was living in Ashfield for a while and had a 10km ride there and back but now i'm in Stanmore and its only about 5- 6 Kms. which is a bit too easy.

a few of my routes are up on Bikely.com somewhere.
