I've made a couple of posts but as well saying hello proper now as I've finally got my bike. Picked up a Scott Aspect 20 the other day. My last bike was easy 15-16 years ago.... some crazy Peugot thing (from the time those fluorescent orange/yellow bikes were all the rage and weight more than your average washing machine and the idea of suspension on your bike was pipe dream for the average child) so it does feel like having to pretty much learn the basics again from scratch....I haven't even been able to wheelie/manual the thing yet hahahaha....still despite being terrified every time I go on the thing I'm enjoying it already :D

    Enjoying it is the best thing you can do! Everything else will come after that. Good luck!

    The thing that gets me is the lightness of it... Going by what I've read as well my ride is meant to be one of the heavier ones (compared to those £1500+ machines) :D
