I belonged to this forum a while back, but let my membership lapse as I didn't do that much cycling with my old clunker of a rusty mountain bike. I now have a shiny new Globe Sport hybrid (if I have the technical details wrong there, forgive me, I'm not that clued up with biking stuff), and I'm enjoying it immensely.
Let my location not fool you, I'm a South African. I've lived in Ireland for three years now.
Glad to be back.
