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!!
