Hi from Reading and London UK

Hi Folks
Just a quick introduction, I am a commuting(Brompton), road biking and mtbing dad from the south of England. I like nothing more than a few hours out in the countryside soaking up the miles.

I have been known to tackle some of the big hills of the Alps that the TDF goes over and when I get the chance love to zip through the trees on a bit of ace singletrack.

That is, when I am not having knee trouble. I am still trying to get it sorted with physios and doctors, not much luck yet! Actually that is why I joined the forum, to ask advice about how to improve my Brompton riding position (see my post in the folding bikes forum).

Here's looking forward to chatting to you all.

Welcome to Bike Forums toppcatt. I agree that there's nothing better than cruising around in the countryside for a few hours. I can only imagine you've got some great countryside to ride through in England. Can't help much with the riding position, however there will be plenty of advice on the forums. Good luck!

Hi toppcatt! It looks as if the Folding Forum folks have given you quite a few ideas to mull over.

I hope that the tips will help you keep cycling for as long as you have the desire .

Welcome to BikeForums, and don't hesitate to send me a PM if you have any questions.
