Long time biker. first time poster

Greetings.

I've been riding and tinkering with bikes for a long time.

Not a luddite that dismisses absolutely everything as marketing hype, but the wallet normally dictates that I ride older stuff.

Current bikes;

Rose Xeon Rs - 7.3 kg alloy road bike

Dolan Preffiso - winter bike / kid trailer rig

Ridley X-night SL - rim brake cross machine drilled for 2 bottle cages and with Paris Roubaix graphics (surplus from Lotto team 2014)

2004 Specialized Enduro FSR full sus - A frame size too small for me and with many mods and in need of some more.


Life has gotten in the way of cycling this year but I'm starting to get back out there (with an extra 10kg and 50 fewer watts than 12 months ago)

Hoping this forum can help keep me motivated on all things bike.
