Hi From Ireland

Hey All,

I've been browsing here for a couple of days. Nice to see a good, active forum with plenty of areas of interest covered.

I'm based in Dublin, Ireland. I'm mad about cars but I like bikes too and I cycle to work (13 mile round trip) whatever the weather. It keeps me fit, it's fun, it's cheap and it's a lot quicker than driving in rush hour. Unfortunately I'm driving this week as my bike's broken. Hope to get it back tommorrow. I really miss it . I also head for the hills around my home for a bit of off-roading when I have a chance.

I've just upgraded from a Specialized Hardrock to an S-Works, thanks to a very generous colleague . I just put some road tyres on it at the weekend but I haven't had a chance to try them yet (see above).

Don't expect too many posts from me in the next few weeks as I'll be too busy reading!!

Cheers,

Jeremy

Thanks for the welcome. Just been having a bit of a browse, thanks to which my new tyres are now properly seated, eliminating a rather annoying bumpy sensation l'd been experiencing!

Not only bumpy, but possibly quite dangerous!
