Welcome to BF. I myself am fairly new to this forum and am visiting ABQ.

I just rented a bike and rode it back up to my folks house in the heights and it wore me out! I've been doing 30+ miles back home, and a stupid little 4.5 mile ride was hard... go figure! Funny thing is, 25 years ago, when me and my friends were riding single speeds, it didn't seem so hard. Must be the age.... or the altitude.

Again, welcome to BF!

Hello Tom, which group buy were you thinking about? Best way to contribute is to post every once in a while . Besides, that way we get to know you better.

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

Not yet

I am just getting back into cycling and trying to gain some fitness before I go on any group rides. I am just riding fixed right now to speed up the process.

If you want hit me up and we can go for a spin. My geared bike may even be ready soon.

Thanks

That sounds like a good idea as I should probably try and make a poitive contribution before I go taking advantage of any group buys

Thanks
