Hello All

Hi everyone,

I'm very new to road bikes and have just bought a Peugeot Tourmalet. Since I've got it home I've noticed the rear wheel needs to be pulled true and the rear derailleur needs adjusting so hopefully I can bumble my way through without breaking anything! Looking to cycle for fitness and a bit of fun, seeing as I used to be quite fit but have grown slovenly since I started university...

Hey there. Welcome to Bike Forums. You might want to stop by the classic & Vintage forum or Bicycle Mechanics forum. Both have lots of helpful people who have experience rehabilitating bicycles that need some TLC.

Thanks, I'll check them out. Managed to tune the derailleur this morning into a workable state, still need to get the rear trued though. The bike's in pretty good nick, I'll post some photos in the other forum.
