getting back on the bike and looking forward to it.

hi guys,my name is jason,i live in ireland.im getting back on the saddle after a long time and cant wait to hit the road.its been about 10 years since i was last on a bike.My dad has just given me his bike and i am delighted.Its an early 90s mbk columbus frame.It has a full shimano 600 tri color groupset,dura ace chain,mavic open 4 cds wheels and 600 tri color hubs.mavic pedals,cineli bars,and rolls saddle.i have just fitted new vittoria tyres,tubes,and cineli bar tape.I spent a few hours the other day cleaning and oiling the bike,it is in immaculate condition for its age.Ill try and upload some photos of the bike soon.Im like a kid in a candy shop and although im 38 i feel like im 15.I really cant wait to hit the road and enjoy some nice cycles.looking forward to getting some advice on this site as well,all the best for now jay.

10 years is nothing - I just started again after about 35 years off. And I love it. Sometimes makes me feel like I'm a teenage again as well. Now if only I could still ......
