Hi there just joined after finding this site I,m 45 used to mountain bike loads for about 6 or so years then got into road racing (just club stuff) for 4 or 5 years till I damaged my knee then didn,t really touch a bike again till now.
Being the wrong side of 40 and piling on quite a bit of weight I thought it was time to sort things out so I dusted of the ol turbo resurrected the M STEEL road iron picked up an old school lava dome off ebay (its mentioned in the ebay off road thread) I wasn't particularly looking to go old school but when I saw the kona on ebay it bought back so many good memories,so its time to increase my fitness and reduce the waistline a bit (lot),
I live on the Isle of Wight so plenty of good riding to be had locally on and off road, never expecting to get back to the fitness I had 20 plus years ago when I started but hopefully have some fun and maybe meet up with a few guys out on the trails
bye for now Charlie

Hi all,

Just joined this site after landing myself with a bit of a project and realising that I'm going to need some advice - Sorry!

I'm used to mountain bikes normally so this will be my first foray into the world of skinny tyres...

Another fan of magnetic bikes here, most recent one a Colnago Saronni, in sky blue, but hard to beat a Columbus Thron framed Peugeot Competition for all day comfort though. Finding it hard to resist some of the classic steel offerred lately.....
