Hello, thought I'd introduce myself as a newbie to the forum.
Been lurking for a couple of weeks and felt it was about time I joined the arena.

Just picked up my new bike on Cyclescheme:
Genesis Flyer 09 (yep, the horrible shade of green one).

It's my first decent bike after commuting on a 15-year-old-weighs-more-than-a-tank hybrid.
It's also 1st time on singlespeed (no intentions of going fixed), 1st time on dropped bars and 1st time on clipless pedals so got a steep learning curve ahead. :shock:

My commute is 9.2 miles each way of countryside east of York and therefore pretty flat, hence the move to SS for the coming winter crud.

Matt

    Lol. Being new here, I dont know the deal, but I'm assuming as a girl amongst a forum populated by males, I guess LIT would get a lot of attention. :lol:

    It looks like the singlespeed monster ate my bike and then chucked it up half digested!! :twisted: :lol:

  • Matt, welcome to the forum, hope you have fun here and enjoy providing your opinion and having questions answered. Only been on here a month and have had a lot of great tips and answers to (sometimes) stupid questions.

    Like the bike, I had thought of a SS but joined The Dark Side and got a Tricross Sport, mainly as I could also do some touring on it, and had grown weary of the MTB on slicks for commuting. It is now christened Mary Doll, as I commute into central Glasgow down Maryhill Road.

    Enjoy!!

    True, but being a bit on the inexperienced side when it comes to doing things to bikes, its more likely I will ask stupid things!! For gawds sake, I couldnt even put on mudguards!!
