Hello!


A new bicycle you say? you may have found us in the nick of time!!

Now, do as i say. Remove any part of your body from said bike and wheel toward your shed/garage lock the door and walk away!

Congratulations! you are now free from the constraints of newness.

Please enjoy your journey.

Al,random nutter! :D

Hi, what is this new bike and how/why did you find us?

I'm building old and new bikes, probably still not fit enough to chase these lot!

Thankyou for the kind welcome - I was recommended to this site by the shop that sold me my new bike. It's a Kona Cinder Cone and i'm already enjoying it although my body isn't.

I was expecting a forum just for older bikes but find all sorts going on so i'm glad i signed up.

Hi Phil.
No need to say ''unfortunately...''
-New-bikes are the ultimate old-bike accessory!

Original was steel mind.

Well there's a few NEW (version) Orange Clockwork/Prestige bikes etc on here, so cool I guess. Its based around a love of retro bikes, but getting (back) into biking is the important thing in my opinion.
