    Good to see a few Aussies popping up. Hello 8fold & Donna.

    Afraid I can't be much help to you Donna - my bike decided it didn't want to shift into all gears - took it to the LBS and was told that my son had bent the rear mech when he used me for a brake on Sunday, knocking me onto the road.

    I had ridden it for two days since the crash and noticed nothing - until I got a decent turn of speed up, and needed my hardest gear! The bike promptly tried to throw me off again!

    So gears probably aren't my thing at the moment!!

    Still, I pick up the bike again tomorrow - I have to try to keep some decent miles up, as I am doing Bay to Bay and Around the Bay in a Day this year.

    Maybe this URL might give you somewhere to start.

    Hi. I live in Rochester NY. I'm an engineering student at Rochester Institute of Technology and am currently at an internship at a local company. I ride a Trek 1000, though I am looking at upgrading. I enjoy riding along the Erie canal and around some of the local lakes.

    I'm stuck in Columbus, Ohio and work as a technician. The only thing good I found in Ohio are it rail/trail paved bicycle paths and most are flat. My speed is 13-17 mph and most rides are 30-45 miles long, the trails are nice and some scenery is great.

    I am new to the forum, I live in Denver, CO. I ride 2-3 times a week at least and getting ready to ride in the Durango100. I thought it would be awesome to maybe see who is around this area and see about doing some group rides.

    As for work, I work with engineering doing quality assurance and go to school.

    I live in Boca Raton, Florida, USA and I have been retired for many years. I'm plenty old enough to be the father of most of you.

    I ride my Giant OCR Composite 4-5 times per week solely to stave off the little walker, oxygen cylinder and Viagra.

    I wish I had started at age 20 instead of 60.

    Hello all, I'm from just outside Washington DC. I'm the editor for the Daily Spin News, a daily email/newsletter with the top cycling news. It's a pretty fun job searching the web for stories about my passion ;) Glad to be a member and hope to see some of you sign up or check us out. Oh, and I ride 200-300 miles a week, depending on the time of year.

    Hi. Completely new to the world of cycling and forums! I live in Worcester in the UK and work as a project manager for an IT company. Have just taken up cycling for two reasons - need to lose a lot of weight (currently 21 stone or 133 Kg!) and need to strengthen up the legs after knee surgery. Really striking out on getting cycling clothing that fits. Does anyone know of any manufacturers that do oversize stuff? Would be much appreciated.

    Hi, just found this forum today....

    I'm from Rockbridge, Ohio (US), don't try finding it on a map, this place it to small to use the ink for it. Anyway, I manage to ride about twice a week when I'm lucky.
    Oh, I'm a firefighter & flight paramedic.


    Ride on.......

    I'M from Tokyo JAPAN. Commute to work (teaching is my job) 20 km away from home three days a week.

    No racing (I'm an old man) and just long distances (100 -200 km a day).

    Crashed two times -- first time cost me a collar bone (two operations) and 2nd time cost me a Topolino rear wheel. Both times cost me a LAS helmet.

    Dessiboy,
    Try Gound Effect, they're a kiwi company who make good sensible stuff. From memory its <www.groundeffect.co.nz> but if that fails Google will find it for you. They do a very quick mail order service and their XL size will fit an All Black forward!
    fFr waterproof jackets I'd recommend Tioga's product, I have just bought one and it works as well as the expensive Goretex item that I have replaced. Expect to pay about forty quid for it, once again Google will find Tioga for you and you can mail-order from one of their agents.
    All the best!
