Newbie from Derbyshire UK

Hi everyone
I've just returned to cycling after a break of 15 or so years. Things have changed! Especially me - older, less fit, larger!
I thought I would just buy a cheap hybrid bike and ride. However, as before the urge to tinker with my bike mechanics has taken over again. I always loved adjusting and changing my bike just as much as riding - all part of the hobby I suppose.
I am especially interested in gear ratios etc.

I've read loads of interesting threads already and hope to read and post more.

Cheers
Dave
