Greetings from Dublin, Ireland

Hi All,

I'm just getting back into cycling. I used to cycle everywhere, but then I got a car and didn't get on a bike for 20 years!

Anyway, I recently got myself a shiny new bike - a Felt QX85 Hybrid, and I'm loving it. I've already started doing some regular rides - it's just like falling off a bike, so to speak :-)

I'm building myself up to a 20 mile round trip commute, with a couple of tasty hills thrown in. Then hopefully get rid of one of our two cars.

I think I need to change the pedals for bigger ones, get a set of riser bars and change the saddle, then my ride will be perfect.

That's how I came across bikeforums.net, lots of interesting stuff here.

Talk to ya!
Gav

Hi Gav,
I like my Felt.
Can you post some pics of where you ride when you get time?
