I'm new to this forum so just thought I would introduce myself and my bike.

My name is Matt from Kent... I'm 25 but feeling very old at the moment so have decided to get back in the saddle!!

My Bike:

Cove Handjob XC - White
Fox F100RL 100mm Forks
XTR Group Set - Except Hubs which are XT
Carbon Seat Post and Bars

I am looking to get back to a decent level of fitness this summer and over the winter, probably on rollers though, to maybe start racing at a very novice level.

    Hi, and welcome!

    That's some good kit for a beginner ;-)

    Very nice spec. Needs to be ridden. Hope being on here inspires you to get out (at least you can't use a bike like that as an excuse :lol: ).
    It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

    I've bought a new bike....ouch - result
    Can I buy a new bike?...No - no result

    Well I thought I would invest in some good gear now rather than having to spend out twice when using poorer quality stuff.

    Is there anywhere on this site to record a training log?
