I'm new here so just introducing myself. My name is Jon Foster, i'm 16 and i really enjoy cycling to work every day (only 7 miles each way) and enjoy going for a decent cruise on the weekends now and again. My main bike is a Marin Kentfield but i'm saving for a real racing bike, i have a Falcon Veloce but its old and in a sorry state. I always enjoyed cycling from when i learnt to ride but been since i moved to Portsmouth (england) 4 years ago its been my only means of transport and i've clocked up quiet a few miles. About 3 years ago i started doing some riding on my falcon racer about 10 miles a day and a training session on the track every Friday, i stopped this in November '03 when i got a serious rip in my calf muscle from running. In February i got my Marin bike and its really nice to ride to work on, thin tyres like a racing bike and a "comfortable riding position." I have a question about setting my bike up for a proper ride as i did a 3 hour ride on Saturday and i have a real back ache now and my hands were starting to ache while i was riding so i clearly need to sort it out, what bit should i post in about this?
