Hi Steve here,
Unfit and slowly getting back into cycling with a 20 year old Holdsworth Professional. I used to mountain bike until i moved to London 12 years ago and haven't turned a wheel since then. Thoroughly enjoying the Holdsworth even though I'm regularly out of breath and have sore bum bones.

Cheers
Steve

Hi everybody, my name is Rob. Used to ride with a club (Central Sussex! Are they still going?) as a junior in the late 80's. Went to uni, discovered wine &'women and that was the end of that...

Back to this winter, and I found my old vitus 979 in the shed. I fancied a bit of challenge so spent some time cleaning it up. I am now an addict! I can see my bike collection growing...

Welcome robster, you have come to the right spot. The road section has a bit few less users than MTB, but for the most part we're nice folks, and some know a lot about bikes.

Hello all quick intro from me, been lurking for a bit but mow taking the plunge. I have a few bikes, a modern Cinelli experience for whizzing around the lanes of east essex, a rossin novus (would like to start a thread about that later at a later date as i have very little info on the bike and am looking to find out more about it) oh and a raleigh record sprint for general chilling around and tugging my daughter about up and down Southend sea front by the trailgator. As nice as the modern is to ride I just can't help but love the feel of steel and the way the older bikes ride, look and feel.

Cheers one and all. love the site.

Hi,
Just joined up wanting advice on my new project. Looking forward to doing more than just lurking here! I am a junior racer, currently 3rd cat, who spends too much time in the garage and not enough at the desk! Down here in Portsmouth enjoying what the southdowns has to offer, nice to meet you all!
