Scottish salutations...

Hello everyone!

New rider from just south of Glasgow, Scotland here. Bought my Raleigh Airlite 100 around 2 years ago but was unable to find the time to build fitness enough to start using it to cycle to university. Planning to get back on the road and involved in the forums here, once I work out a few niggles on the bicycle. Can address those elsewhere though. To introduce myself properly, I'm a 19 year-old student at the University of Glasgow. I would love to learn how to properly maintain my bicycle so hope that these lovely forums can help me do so.

Cheers folks.

Hi, welcome to BF, its nice to have a Scotsman join us here. The Mechanics Forum can answer your questions and has a lot of good, solid, helpful information that can solve a lot of problems. Best wishes on your studies at university and on your riding.

Hello fellow Scot and welcome to the bike forums! as said above the mechanics forum will help you fix any problem you have, the park tool guides are really good to use if you want to learn the basics.
