Hope this goes well

Hi,
I haven't seriously used a bike for almost 20 years, and having worked from home for ten years thus being badly out of shape (and had a few back issues), I decided I'd better get an electric bike!

So I bought an expensive one, I hope it works out and I'll actually use it more than occasionally!

It seems bikes have gotten more complex since my time, so I've just posted a thread in the e-bike sections about some levers on my Kalkhoff I don't know what are.

I'm 46, tall and big man, lives in Lancashire, UK, and I'm a webmaster.

I didn't, but I took one right now.

I just got it today, it has not even "tasted" the road yet.
(First I have to find out what all the dang levers do.)

Thank you. It has top reviews.
And I also think it looks good. So much that I *almost* don't care that we are no longer allowed to keep bikes on the stair landings (even though there's plenty of space), because I can almost view it as a decorative element in the flat.

My main goal is to get around more, because I'm a hobby photographer.

You're a photographer? Check out the Foo forum: http://www.bikeforums.net/foo/

There is a monthly photography contest (the theme for August is "anger") and a Post Your Photography thread.
