Hello there ladies and gents, my name is Grant but friends call me 'Lurch' {height reasons of course :D }

Anyway I thought I would say hello as im looking for a new place to meet others and pick there brains out clean for infomation in the future. I was a rider a few years back but having a little one, moving, new job I had to stop for awhile.

Im slowly getting back into riding and looking for a cheapish, new bike. Hopefully will have the missis get back into it to.

I'l keep it short and sweet until I have something useful to say :D

    Hello Lurch, this seems like a nice place to learn and listen I've just taken up biking and at my age very surprised
    At how people react not used to forums etc hope you can get misses riding as well perhaps get or hire trailer
    And take little one on some trails good riding
    Whoops who did that!

    Welcome to the madhouse called the bikeradar forum, expect banter, ridicule,the odd idiot and also differing opinions but above all advice. Personally I'm glad the wife doesn't ride much as she worries to much, get your youngster riding asap it's the way forward. Trailers and tagalong bikes are ok for longer distances but try small balance bikes as well. Loads of advice on here in family section.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Cheers for the warm welcome guys and yep, im on it with getting little one his first decent bike at Christmas, He took a interest when he was looking at old photos of his old man on his bike. The missis is really getting back into it as well and has gone bike shopping today whilst im at work XD

    Again guys a massive thanks for the warm welcome :)
