just joined the forum, so thought i would say hi...

im always going on my volkswagen forums to find parts/advice and found them so helpful i thought i would do the same for my cycling!

I usually cycle once or twice a week, around 40 miles at a time, often cycling around surrey and london, solo or with a friend.

iv'e got an pinnancle sentinal 1.0, which although was purchased a few years ago has served me well with no troubles atall!

went to sigma sport today to spend some christmas money with a friend, ended up in the clearance shop, going home, and looking like this...


maybe not the best picture in the in the world, but should serve some purpose when on the bikes and each item was only £10!!

just bought some new pedals, shimano R540 for £18.95 off ebay which seemed like a good deal including postage, now need to find some shoes

ill be on the look out on here, if anyone has any, im a uk size 9 which i think translates to a 43 i think so let me know...and yes i do have paypal :D

thanks people!

    Introducing yourself isn't necessary. But a nice change! Welcome!!

    Enjoy the forum and don't be too worried about asking silly questions. That's how we all learn.

    And happy riding.

    No matter what the cost of your bike or kit, just ride it.

    When the oil runs out you will still be independent.

    When the 'unions' call a strike you will still be able to get to work.

    - and when gym fees go through the roof you will still be able to keep fit and healthy.

    Enjoy the hobby of a lifetime!

    Welcome Sigma sports man.

    I had one of them red bikes but I don't any more. Sad face.
