    Hello from Sydney, Australia

    Hello there BF members.

    Short version...
    Info: Jim, 34yo, 90kg, 6'2", father of 2 (soon to be 3)
    Location: Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia
    Why am I here?: partaking of a nicely rediscovered interest in cycling of late

    After riding a fair bit as a teenager before drifting completely away from cycling about 10 years ago, a lack of general fitness due to knee problems from playing 20+ years of basketball lured me back to the bike. Watching the 2006 TdF I thought "I should be doing that", 2 months later I was back riding my mountain bike on the road. 4 months after that I had a road bike, and was really finding out all about the muscles I'd not used for years. Been back on a bike seriously for 8 months for fitness and its having the desired effect.

    I'm mainly a road rider, but once I rebuild my mountain bike I'm off to try a few trails.

    My bikes:
    The Part-Time Commuter
    The Roadie
    The Experiment

    I hope to have some lightning bolt moments of clarity on the forums, either that or make use of everyone elses intelligence.

    Jim

    Hi Jim, you will have to come visit the Classic & Vintage forum with photos and updates on your Centurion. Looks like perhaps mid eighties there, although you can tell from the date codes on the components if you'd really like to know .

    If it wasn't for the fact that my signature is a bit cluttered, I'd have stolen this line:

    "I hope to have some lightning bolt moments of clarity on the forums, either that or make use of everyone else's intelligence."

    With that in mind, I hope I'll see you posting somewhere in the future, because I'll be looking for those lightning bolt moments .

    Welcome to BF!
