Hey up Dave, welcome aboard. I've just entered the half century club myself, I reckon cycling is the healthy way to have a mid life crisis.

No pun intended Midlife :lol:

We need some pics to perv over though.

Ah.. Brittany... Kenavo!
If you can include a massive granite corner in your photos, that will cheer me up tremendously, marooned as I am in a land of frankly weird brick boxes...

Hi all,

Thanks for all your responses - slight delay in posting as have been in Paris for a few days - there's a place to test your cycling skills! It would certainly give you motivation to get across some of the junctions / roundabouts with the totally mad French drivers flying around!!

I should have mentioned I found the site researching for info on a Scapin I just bought - I will put some photos together and post asap - "torqueless" - I'll try and get some granite in there too.

Cheers

Hello. I'm Jasper from Belgium. I'm mainly a Flandria ethousiastic (I have 5, so far..) , but my pride and joy is my Benotto (can be seen here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bonzobiscuits/8675182417/in/photostream)

I recently acquired a Merckx Professional (at least I think it is). I started a topic about it, because I can use some help on that bicycle.

Hi I'm Carl in Birmingham. A bloke I met today told me about this site as I'm hoping to sell some old kit from the 90s. Not sure my bike is old enough to you but it's retro to me! It's an early 2000s Principia aluminium frame with full Campagnolo Chorus 10 speed. I've recently updated the forks, bars & stem but apart from that it's still original. Even the tyres are Michelin ProRace2.

ahhhh....pah-reeeee!! i remember getting lost in paris years ago when
we bundled three keen young cyclists and our respective bikes into
a mk2 RS2000 and set off for st etienne. we ended up driving around
paris trying to get back on the main drag south and couldn't believe
just how battered up the cars were - it seemed that everyone used
their bumpers for just that practice - bumping!!

:shock:

Paris style parking involves bumping other cars to create space while bay parking according to the French manfriend :)
