Hello from a new member

Hello,
I have been riding bicycles on and off since I was a child which was a long time ago!
Now that I have retired I have bought an old Holdsworth frame and now must spend some time restoring it and building it up to it's former glory. Part of my motivation to join this group is to pick the brains of other like-minded cyclists.

I live in England not far from Coventry where many fine bicycles were manufactured but sadly no more.

Welcome Mick.
Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the old timers.

Ron, thank you for the welcome. I will post a note on the 50+ forum. I've been a little distracted by looking at your bikes. Titanium an aluminium abounds whilst I make do with Reynolds 531 steel ! My frame is almost ready for spraying, I'll post a picture of it when it's done.

My Saracen hybrid bike will be sold soon I hope, I've never really liked it. It was supplied by the insurance company after my previous Saracen was stolen and the new one is not a patch on the old one.

Kind regards

Mick
