You certainly made a great decision - I've been riding a 7500fx for around 4 months now and love it - apart from the saddle, which I'm going to change for the summer. The weather has been so terrible...

Hi There,

I think both options will be fairly safe. I've not yet used mine on gravel, but I know of others on this forum who have and experienced no problems. It's probably worth asking your LBS...

Stuart - the issue about the spokes is one which I inquired about at my lbs. They told me those wheels actually have stronger rims and so need less spokes. I would probably change the tyres anyway....

Thanks for the advice - and eating in moderation and cutting out fatty foods will be a good idea. I'll be sure to let you know how I get on.

Fitness - How long?

How long do you reckon you need to cycle a bike per day to regain a good level of fitness - or how many miles per day, in general? I know it's a very generalised question which varies from person to...

To complete 1 century ride per month (or more). Oh, and play more golf - but that's not related. ;)

I've been very busy recently, but I'll try and organise it. Any help which can be offered is great - we need someone to plot the different locations of members on a map. Any one offering?

Rich.

Okay, let's discuss the charities then. I still think some kind of disabled sport charity is best. Thoughts, everyone?

Yep - it's a pound. I like the idea of giving the money to Joe for running the site so superbly - but at the same time it would be good to split it 50:50 for a charity too. We need a lot of European...

Not yet ankev, but once we get an idea of numbers hopefully the planning can begin. As koffee says, it'll probably run over a year.

How did you start cycling?

I'm interested to hear how everyone started cycling properly (by that, I mean not just jumping on a bike for a few minutes, but actually going out for a longer cycle).

So far, I've got a hybrid....
