Oh no, hills!

Well this seems to be the happening place for newbies like me to post so here goes.


Well, I'm British, living in Watford (moving to Southampton in a few weeks), 24 years old, 5'11", 75 kgs with athletic build and GSOH. Hang on, wrong forum. Anyway, I'm not quite sure what to write here, I signed up because I ordered my first ever road bike today - A Focus Cayo Triple (yes I'm aware that a triple isn't hip, but I don't care, after all, if I wanted to look cool I wouldn't have ordered THIS!) - and after scouring various forums for lots of useful advice I figured I'd join one to restore the universe's clever/stupid balance.

Actually I haven't ordered that top, although I am slightly tempted, even though I'd look like an enormous prat wearing a silly top like that with my ability. Perhaps that's what's tempting me. Anyway, how are you? Oh and I like cycling too and I hope to get better at it. That's about it really. Bye.

Hello ONH, some of us are quite the hill fanciers, but even so, I don't think I would be wearing that jersey! Don't worry about triple/versus double--think about someone like me who is so unhip as to be riding around on steel bikes with only 10 speeds .

Welcome to BF!
