hello from Australia!

Hi, my name is Chad Pedrotti, I live in the best side of australia .
14 years old, love riding with friends... dislike riding on my own. Gets quite lonely! I much prefer cycling on the road than going to a BMX track like many other people my age.
Basically, me and my dad have this little errr... not sure what one would call it. But basically, if I want to try a new hobby, he will get me started... then lock me out in the cold in terms of upgrades, accessories etc. I have an Avanti Black Thunder. On special from, if i remember correctly, $500 down to $300. There aren't any trails where I live. It's just a concrete jungle really.

I also fly remote control planes and helicopters. And I thought THAT hobby was expensive!

Best regards and happy riding!

Hello Chad, that's an interesting arrangement you and your father have about hobbies. Trust me, I think in the long run that cycling will cost less, not to mention that you will perhaps come to think that spending a lot of money on petrol every week is a losing proposition.

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

ahh... just realised how my user name doesn't really fit my personality
I couldn't possibly have had "lovercplanes" or what ever as my user name on a bike forum

I was thinking of saving up for a entry level road bike. I earn $95 week and I've been known to hold onto my cash for dear life! ... Now that I think of it I better post up in a different section of this forum.

happy riding to all!
