    Hello from Glasgow, Scotland

    Hi


    old fart here (48), just converted my old Giant GSR plus MTB to SS on the cheap for 16 yo son and me to use

    I am pretty overweight and hugely unfit and need something to motivate me to do something about it - hopefully this is it....

    SS is a wee bit of a frankenbike but runs well - need to fix the cosmetics now so need help there again on the cheap

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    Welcome N! I'm also new here and also an old fart of 48. I went the more expensive route and sold my MTB and purchased a hybrid which should be arriving tomorrow or Thursday. It's a BMC Alpenchallenge AC01. I'm also still, like you, overweight but I have been working hard at losing that weight. I started at 97kg and now weigh 83kg and I walk, on average, 7-10km per day. Make sure you throw up a pic of your frankenbike!
