Yo

Just joined today and got myself a brand new bike today and just rediscovering the pleasure of flying around the city and the annoyance of avoiding the glass on the ground

I plan to eventually go on long distance rides I am from Ireland so there is ALOT of nice scenary out there waiting for me, I am relatively unfit (my first ride today and uphills killed me) and plus I need a new hobby and why not do one of my favourite childhood ones.

Cheers

Hello Ethereal, what kind of bike did you get yourself?

It sounds as if you've got a road bike, but no matter what bike you've got, congratulations on getting back on a bicycle!

Welcome to BF!

I made an incorrect assumption then, didn't I? I don't know much about your bike as it appears to be a UK/European model.

At any rate, enjoy your riding!

Brilliant! I agree, it looks as if the seatpost is a bit low, but if you're as short as I am, I could understand that .
