Hello from Manchester, UK

Hello there from 'sunny' Manchester, England!

Bit of a newbie to the world of road cycling but really enjoying my stint as a Lance Armstrong wannabe! I've joined the forums to learn a bit more about bike maintenance - it's trickier than it looks! I'll also keep a keen eye on the road cycling forums, both competitive and recreational.

If anyone fancies a ride around the hills of Manchester, I'm a shout away!

Hi 10 Wheels,

By 'sun' I mean rain and plenty of it!

I ride a 2011 Trek 1.1. I absolutely love the bike but am having a few newbie issues with tyres/breaks/chains/gears. It's all a learning curve I suppose!

It takes time to learn all you need to know about your bike.
Just stay with it.
