Wotcha!

Wotcha you lot - move over and make room for a little one Have always been a cyclist from as early as I can remember - grew up in London and cycled everywhere as we didn't have a car. Still cycling now, love to ride older steel frames on the daily commute. Cheers John

Current rides are an old Dawes Horizon, Ribble 653 and what I think was a Raleigh Sprite given to me by a neighbour who was about to chuck it out - it's had a new lick of paint and wheelset (the old 27" were too corroded) and rides nicely now.

A steel commuter with lots of experience - lots of places to fit in here on The Forums

Welcome.


old steel still works well. I have a couple of English Holdsworths (tho' branded as Irish Harding).

Thanks for the welcome.

Sure does - I'm not too dogmatic about it, but it's what I like, I guess because it's what I grew up with... and as my wife would no doubt tell you, I've never really grown up
